Hello. I was wondering if anyone could help me track down some information on a Tadeusz Zemla RAF service number 705653. He was a flight Sergeant in the RAF in WW2. He was born in Krakow in Poland on 03.05.1916 before moving to England. He died in England on 16.06.2005. The only information i have is that he escaped from a Nazi work camp which i'm guessing was in Poland. The other piece of information is that he was a potential spy as he knew both German and Russian. I don't know how true that is however. I have searched long and hard and i've been unable to find anything apart from some very basic information on google.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The one i posted on #2 on here was the certificate for naturalisation but this one is the application for naturalisation.[I would assume at a guess that this one would have more information on it been the application form]
