About

This event also marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day, by commemorating Poles who took part in D-Day and operation ‘‘Overlord’.

The Lest We Forget includes:
● The story of the Polish 307 Squadron.
● The History of Exeter Airport where 307 Squadron were based from 1941-1943.
● ‘The Polish D-Day Story’ exhibition which shows the role of the Polish military during D-Day.
● meeting with authors of graphic novel Dog Fight: Airdogs and much more.


This free event in both English and Polish, will take place at the Exeter Guildhall, from:
Friday 15 th November 10:00–16:00

On Friday 15 November, ‘307 Squadron Day’, at 10:00 the Polish flag will be raised over the Guildhall by
the Deputy Lord Mayor of Exeter.


Lest we Forget has been organised by 307 Squadron Project, with support from Exeter City Council and
Devon County Council.


307 Squadron Project is a British-Polish registered charity established to promote the role and carry out further research on the squadron that were known as the ‘Lwow Eagle Owls’. The project also promotes cooperation between our nations.
