Progress is a word that seems to have disappeared from my vocabulary at the moment. I have entered one of those phases where nothing is happening. The flow of information has dried up; I am in the paradoxical state of despair and optimism. No information is forthcoming but I've been there before and it will come back. In these times I get a bit depressed and think of the dozen, or so, people who have promised information and photographs and then ducked below the radar and turned up with nothing; I think of people I have contacted who have a potential bucket of information and totally ignore my approaches and I think of the people who have said that this is a well worthwhile project and then disappear.
But I am the eternal optimist and keep going. OK Despair cancelled! I still have a lot of information to post here and I'm not the first researcher to be frustrated. The good news is that I have a potential publisher and this story can still be told.
No matter what, the memory of these brave Polish airmen will be on this site for a long time. I care - do you? If anyone out there can help, please contact me.
You may have noticed that I am doing these entries alphabetically (as and when I have time off work to make them). Wait for Janicki, Jozefiak, Waroczewski and others and then you will see what I am driving at.
