Armed with references from Andrzej Doroszewicz, builder of replica RWD-13, I went to Puck to MDL. My great grandfather was trying to get a job there in the 1920s. I arrived at the MDLot Museum which is currently closed due to organisational changes. However, an exception was made to me. I spent many hours dabbling in history around seaplanes and flying boats. So far, the barracks and 3 hangars have survived, although today they serve a different purpose. The fourth hangar called “Black” next to a seaplane ramp has not survived. Another building is standing there now.
Poland regained its independence on November 11, 1918. The takeover of the Pomeranian territories from the Germans began on January 18 and lasted until February 11, 1920. As the first soldiers, Puck reached the 1st Krechowce Uhlan Regiment. A few days later, on February 10 General Jozef Haller arrived in Puck and made a symbolic wedding of Poland to the Baltic Sea.
Nagorski returned to Poland in 1919. When in May 1920 the Naval Air Force Division in Puck began to form he applied for service. He hoped that his knowledge and experience would be used. Unfortunately, his application has been rejected. Probably the reason for this was that his unit at the end of the war formally became part of the Red Army.
