I am delighted to announce that I have had contact from the son of this airman.  His father is alive and well and living in Canada and they would like to trace their Polish roots.  What they already know is as follows:

Stanislaw's father was Aleksander (1890-1966) and mother Irena Zurakowska (1899-1994). Aleksander had two sisters - Waclawa and Zofia as well as two brothers - Wladyslaw (married Helena Lewicka) and Stanislaw (married Walentyna Miller).  The family came from Wolyn (Krzemieniec, Oleszkowce, Zaslaw, etc), their "home" was lost to the Soviet Union, massacres, knowledge of massacres including Katyn and generally post war crushing poverty.
This site is currently receiving 800-900 hits per month and about a quarter of them are from Poland so if any of you can help with information on this family, please post it here and I will gladly pass it on.
