Polish honours.

On October 4th the remains of seven aircrew--five of them Canadian--were rebuffed with full military honours in Krakow, Poland. On August 4, 1944, Halifax bomber JP276 was shot down while on a supply drop to the Polish Home Army during the Warsaw uprising. In 1948 the remains were placed in the Rakowicki Cemetery in Krakow, in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission area. The Canadians were F/Lt. Arnold Raymond Blynn (the pilot) of Plympton N.S., FO Harold Leonard Brown of Huron County, Ont., PO George Alfred Chapman of Toronto, F/Sgt. Arthur George William Liddell of Montreal and F/Sgt Charles Brown Wylie of Hazenmore, Sask. Sergeants Kenneth Ashmore and Frederick Wenham of the Royal Air Force also perished.

Eight family members of the RCAF victims attended the ceremony under arrangements made by Veterans Affairs Canada.
