"Aces In Exile" as written by and Joakim/sundstr�m Broden....
In the skies above the isle, Aces in exile prevail

From near and far they arrived, joined the force
Ready to serve the allied command
Sent into training though they already earned their wings
They were ready fly, they were fit for the fight

Once in the air, the battle begins
They have proven their worth, now they fly for revenge

Fighter pilots in exile fly over foreign land
Let their story be heard, tell of 303rd
Fighter pilots from Poland in the battle of Britain
Guarding the skies of the isle

Even at night shadows cover the ground
And the fighting goes on from dusk until dawn
With the claw of the Reich with the claw of the eagle
They were ready to fly, they were ready to die

Up in the air the battle goes on
They have proven their worth, now they have their revenge

Fighter pilots in exile fly over foreign land
Tell their story again, tell of 310
Men from Czechoslovakia in the battle of Britain
Guarding the skies of the isle

Over the battlefield brave men long way from home
Few are the chosen ones sent to the sky to die

Over the battlefield brave men long way from home
Few are the chosen ones sent to the sky to die

Fly, it echoes in history
Turning the tide in the heavens above

Oh, fighter pilots in exile fly over foreign land
When the battle has been won, tell of 401
Fighter pilots from Canada in the battle of Britain
Guarding the skies of the isle

On wings of history they turned from home to live eternally skybound they roam
In all of history, never before was more owed to so few

Fighter pilots in exile!

    General CommentAbout the No. 303 Polish Fighter Squadron that was one of 16 Polish squadrons in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War. It was the best scoring RAF squadron of the Battle of Britain.
    The squadron was named after the Polish and American Revolution hero General Tadeusz Kościuszko, and the eponymous Polish 7th Air Escadrille founded by Merian C. Cooper, that served Poland in the 1919-1921 Polish-Soviet War. No. 303 was formed in Britain as part of an agreement between the Polish Government in Exile and the United Kingdom. After a distinguished combat record, the fighter squadron was disbanded in December 1946.

    My InterpretationThis song I think is brilliant. The fact that it focuses on the foreign pilots who fought for my country, from Poland, Czechoslovakia and Canada. And the end line "In our own history, never before
    Was more owed to so few" was what Winston Churchill said to honour the pilots of the Royal Air Force who defended our country so bravely.

    My OpinionFocusing on the foreigh fighters was a really nice idea. I love this song because people basically denied the Polish contribution to the Battle of Britain. In fact the most of Polish contribution to Europe is denied and that's why I so like this band.
