From August 1944 to April 1945, he was the commander of 315 Squadron; then joined the staff of the 12 Hunting Group. During his service, he recorded 167 combat flights, two reliable and one likely kills pf enemy planes (140th position on the Bajan list). After the war, he became a student of the Weston-super-Mare Higher School of Aviation and graduated in April 1946; then, until its decommissioning in 1947, he was the commander of the 306 “Torunski” Tactical Fighter Wing. He then served in the Royal Air Force; among other duties, he was a VIP pilot and later an air traffic controller. He retired in 1973.
