War memorial and displaced people
I WRITE in response to Arthur Boff ’s letter in your September 16 edition. I would like to put him straight on a few historical facts and present day realities.
1) The Polish War Memorial that Mr Boff refers to was erected in recognition of the contribution Polish troops, particularly their pilots, played in defeating the Nazis and preventing the UK from being invaded.
It is not a monument that celebrates pride in “Uxbridge history of taking in people displaced by war”.
2) At war’s end every nation who had assisted in fighting the Nazis were invited to march on the victory parade down Whitehall (except the Polish who were banned for fear of READER Sarah Betteridge from Hayes was enjoying a walk on the open land by Greenway when she spotted this autumnal coloured butterfly minding its own business among the
upsetting Stalin who had annexed Poland into the new USSR).
Many feel that the Polish War Memorial was also erected out of shame for handing the Polish people into the clutches of a dictator.
3) The refugees, asylum seekers, economic migrants or others, who are currently on the march across Europe may very well be Syrians as Mr Boff asserts or not.
I accept that these people may have fled without having time to gather their papers, but I also recognise the potential for criminals and terrorists to mingle with the genuinely displaced.
Syria and much of the area leaves and nettles.

They have treated their fellow Muslims who resisted their perverted version of Islam in the most barbaric way imaginable.
It is my belief that we in the UK or any European country cannot allow these people to roam our streets without first checking their identity and intent.
