Ciapek, official mascot of 305 bomber squadron. Flew many missions, logged as a ‘passenger.’ On one of his missions, the plane never returned and was presumed lost at sea. It seemed he was killed in action, months later he reappeared in a nearby town. How he had survived the plunge into the sea, etc. remains a mystery. ID'd by his collar, which had the RAF Polish station’s name and small wooden bombs on it—one for each of the missions he had flown on. Ciapek was reunited with 305 Squadron.
