Llanelli Polish Community commemorates seven Polish Airmen

On Sunday (2nd June) at the Catholic Church Hall Llanelli, Polish children of the Wesołe Nutki choir, parents, council officials, the Lord Lieutenant Sara Edwards and the Llanelli Labour candidate Dame Nia Griffith MP attended an event to raise awareness of the eight Polish Airmen who gave the ultimate sacrifice during WWII.

The names of the Polish airmen were:

Bohdan Anders, Roman Crzanka, Olechantoni Kawczynski, Jacek Kinel, Waclaw Oyrzanowski, Stanislav Piatkowski, Leonjan Watorowski

Their service will not be forgotten and we will remember them.

Seven of the airmen are buried at Pembrey Church and one buried at St Clears Church.

Additionally, the aim of the event was to raise sufficient funds to put a permanent memorial at the Llanelli Town Hall Cenotaph. The event was able to raise enough money to fund the permanent memorial, and further steps will now be taken to ensure the memorial is put in place at the heart of Llanelli.

The event was arranged and organised by Cllr Rob and Nysia Evans, the Razem-Polish Community Group, and the Association of Polish Journalists and Writers in Wales.
