Wroniecki

If you enter W's name here on Aerodrome in the 'Search' option you'll find an incredible tale to consider~ 'W' was reportedly downed while in the act of fleeing his role as a GAF airman and defecting to the Allies. He is said to have been flying SPADs with the French after a period of recovery from his crash injury~

Other sources have suggested he was active in French Government service up to the late '30's when he was known to have been on an intelligence assignment in Berlin.

Author Charles Woolley spells Campbell's first victim as being a Vizefeldwebel Wronieke.

Just curious as to the correct spelling here?
