This is a tropical uniform: with a French uniform type jacket, pants, shirt with a tie, and a hat. It is an RAF uniform with Polish elements (on the basis of the uniform regulations in force since 1 January 1942, outside Polish borders). It includes Polish buttons, an — eagle model of 1936 (with later changes) on the cap, and the Polish navigator's badge. The uniform belonged to Major Navigator Eugeniusz Arciuszkiewicz, who later was promoted to the rank of Lt. Col. Navigator, and was one of the most outstanding Polish aviation officers.
Eugeniusz Arciuszkiewicz, born in 1907, was an officer in the inter-war period of the 5 Air Regiment in Lviv. In the defensive war of 1939, he served in the rank of Capt. Obs. of the 56 “Karpaty” Army Observation Squadron. Then, he joined the Air Force in the West (service number P-0137). He was awarded the Virtuti Militari Cross, V class and the Distinguished Flying Cross.
He was the commander of 1586 Squadron for Special Tasks from 14 June to 6 November 1944: he commanded the Squadron during its daring flights over the fighting in Warsaw during the 1944 uprising.
After the dissolution of the 1586 Squadron for Special Tasks, he was the commander of 301 Bomber Squadron — “Pomeranian Land of Defenders of Warsaw” — until the end of the war. He died on 10 December 1983 in Toronto, Canada, and was buried there.
