Perhaps one of Ruislip's best known landmarks and yet seemingly with no official page on the internet.

The Polish Air Force Memorial (Previously known as the Polish War Memorial) is situated adjacent to the roundabout on the A40 at its junction with the A4180, just on the London side of Northolt Aerodrome. The roundabout is known, unsurprisingly, as the "Polish Air Force Memorial Roundabout" and is signed as such on the A40.

The memorial is here as during the Second World War there were numerous Polish (and Canadian) airmen stationed at RAF Northolt. The memorial was commissioned to commemorate Polish airmen who perished during the conflict.

Ruislip Online has been pleased to assist the owner of the web site Polish War Graves in compiling the only known definitive list of all those commemorated on this memorial. This involve my taking pictures of all the plaques and then e-mailing them to the owner of Polish War Graves who has then put them together as a typed, searchable, PDF file.
