He was a pilot and was born on 24th May 1915.  He was posted in to the Squadron on 20th June 1941 from RAF Bramcote.  He survived the crash landing of R1413 on 1st October 1941 at Micklefield, West Yorkshire and the crash landing of DV437 at March, Cambridgeshire on 12th April 1942.  The latter was following an abortive attack on the Krupps works at Essen.  En route, Sergeant Lozowicki and his crew fought off an attack by two Messerschmidt Me110 fighters and were unable to hit the primary target.  In spite of engine trouble, he still managed to bomb a Luftwaffe aerodrome at Dinant, France before limping home.  He was posted out to the Polish Depot at Squires Gate on 8th August 1942 pending a medical board following his injuries in the crash landing at March.  He was awarded the Krzyz Walechznych (Cross of Valour) by Air Vice Marshal Ujejski on 21st November 1941.
