This memorial garden (commonly called the Polish War Memorial) is dedicated to the Polish Air Force by the London Borough of Hillingdon.

Significant stone monument to Polish air men from WWII comprising large stone obelisk with bronze eagle and text surrounded by low stone walls bearing names. The memorial was erected in 1948 to commemorate the contribution of airmen from Poland who aided the allies in the Second World War. It records the names of the 1,241 Polish people who died in operational sorties during the course of the war.
