Default 75th Anniversary of Air Raid on Cowes IOW

Another aniversary this weekend. Remembers the Air Raid on Cowes IOW The Polish warship ORP GNIEZNO will be anchored off Cowes, Isle of Wight. over the weekend to commemorate Polish Destroyer ORP Blyskawica 75 years on. Blyskawica was at Cowes being repaired. Her AA guns helped with defence and her crew assisted ashore. Here she is escorting Queen Mary, she was one of the few ships fast enough to keep up with her!.

The occasion is still remembered with gratitude in Cowes and in the Island generally; in fact, there is a suggestion that the new floating bridge should be named after the Blyskawica - we wait and see !

Well done, I had a message from the RN officer responsible for these things and sent him some rare mementos to give the modern Polish ship on scene.

Having a rare opportunity to send the post in the Forum I would like to
thank for the thread.
I would love provide more details from the Polish side but unfortunately the WNF server ( I have faced many problems before with the access to WNF before and strangely this is ONLY with the WNF page !) has successfully and apparently definitely rejected my computer IP and I can not participate in the forum.
My friends here helped a lot before - thanks once more - but I do not want this situation being repeated any longer for this puts me in a uncomfortable position of an backyard door beggar.
Anyway, I will be checking from time to time if the system is more and permanently friendly.

All the best,

GD

Hey GD .... don't give my friend , you are a valued friend on the Forum and I for one look forward to your inputs.

I think many of us have had troubles with the server over the past 12 months but perseverance prevails ..... keep the faith.

Note: The gremlin doesn't let me in very often so I have to grab it when I can.
