Note:- Clicking on images will enlarge, they are high quality pictures and therefore may take a while to load. This is to allow detail to be shown.

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

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 War 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 Northolt. The memorial was commissioned to commemorate Polish airmen who perished during the conflict. 

The Polish War Memorial

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. Click on the link to view the site. Should the site not be available for any reason then a list of names may also be found here.
