The correct spelling is Kuryłłowicz (and should not be confused with Kuryłowicz which is a different name). He was shot down 13th May 1943 on Ramrod 71. According to the book 315 Squadon it was coded PK*A at that time. BS410, then coded PK*E, was the Spitfire in which Francis Gabreski made his first operational sortie with 315 Squadron, Circus 252 on 21st January 1943.
