An insult to the brave Poles

I was disgusted to learn that some narrow-minded, blinkered individuals took it upon themselves to burn Polish flags on bonfire night.

These people should take the time to visit cemeteries in Belfast, Newtownards or Ballyhalbert, where they will see the graves of Polish airmen who died here in Northern Ireland when serving in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War.

I have full details on my website The Second World War in Northern Ireland

I wish to take this opportunity to apologise to the Polish people for the behaviour of these individuals.
