Count Edward Raczynski
Person Male Born 1891 Died 1993
Polish statesman, Ambassador to Great Britain. At external site Rafal Heydel-Mankoo writes:
A marvellous monocled character (he married for the third time at the age of 99) he held the dubious honour of being the first person to inform Churchill that the Second World War had started, telephoning him at Chartwell to notify him that the Germans had crossed the border.
