A short post today. Recently we had a 73rd anniversary of Gibraltar aircrash. Three years ago I attended at the Polish Embassy in London a ceremony celebrating 70th anniversary of the catastrophe. You can read about it here. Don’t worry though, I won’t try to unravel the mystery of the aircrash today. With a nice weather I decided to visit a place where general Sikorski frequented quite often. I’m talking about Hotel Rubens of course. Today a luxurious hotel, between 1940 and 1943 this building was used as Polish Military Headquarters and Sikorski’s office (who was a Prime Minister and Commander in Chief). This is commemorated by plaque at the entrance to the hotel but I doubt the hotel guests are interested in the history of the place.
It looks like a heat wave is going to hit UK so I’ll try to use this opportunity to visit a few more places in London, including a couple of cemeteries.
Stay safe and enjoy the sun!
