During the Battle of Britain they were credited with 32 enemy aircraft confirmed destroyed.  Sgt Josef Frantisek is flying Hurricane coded RF-R and S/Ldr Witold Urbanowicz is piloting the RF-E. Josef Frantisek was killed in a flying accident on 8 October 1940. Witold Urbanowicz survived the war. He was one of few pilots never shot down in combat.
