UNIQUE!! WWII RAF Plaque named to Commanding Offic


This Royal Air Force plaque is one big mystery. No doubting there is some significance in the design of the blue plaque that I'm sure some will will instantly recognise.

The motto on the bottom of the plaque is that of 63 Squadron;

"PONE NOS AD HOSTEM" (Follow us to find the enemy)

The brass plate on the back reads;

"COMMANDING OFFICER - J. URBANSKI 4117 6521
P. WING 4 SQUADRON LEADER A."

63 Squadron flew Spitfires acting as 'Spotters' for the Royal Navy Guns during "Operation Overlord". I'm therefore wondering if there is some RAF/Royal Navy/US Navy connection in the plaque? Particularly when J. URBANSKI was a "Commanding Officer"

Definitely worth some serious research as, be assured this plaque was specifically made like this. The Plaque is a work of art in itself
