This might be a possible sighting:

Brunon Resner born 25th September 1919 in Gniew, Tczew, Poland.  He was a Flight Lieutenant in the RAF, service number P-2326 / 783105, with 304 Squadron (his Polish rank was porucznik = lieutenant). 304 Squadron flew bombers (mostly Wellingtons), see Wikipedia for 304 Squadron details


In June 1950 he was living at Courtfield Gardens in Earls Court and was arrested in Kensington High Street for obstructing shoppers by handing out cards and taking photographs.  He was fined 10 shillings for that, and a further £1 for failing to notify the Aliens Registration Officer that he was working as a street photographer.  Resner stated that he was practising to become a photographer.  Enquiries showed that he had been working at a North Kensington firm of photographers since 24th May.  He apologised for lying, but explained that he was only there part-time, and denied obstructing the pavement.

He died at 37 Thompson Road, Sheffield in Jan/Feb/March 1980 and was buried on 9th January 1980 in the Roman Catholic section of City Road Cemetery (grave 1805, section LL)
