Not a subject on which I am likely to be able to contribute much, but cross-reference between the Polish table in the book (P221-P223) and "Polish Wings 22" reveals one anomaly in the previous identities.
The same RAF serials are known, but in the case of E2734, our book says it became 20.16, whereas "Polish Wings 22" says it became 20.15.
I am just highlighting this in case anyone out there can resolve the problem.

Checking my Polish sources, we sort of have a stalemate here
My first initial is Andrzej Morgala and Samoloty Wojskowe w Polsche 1918-1924 where he lists 20.15 as unknown 20.16 ex E2734
Kopanski lists these two aircraft the opposite way.
Both Morgala and Kopanski are well known (at least in Polish circles) and as an outsider it is quite impossible to say who is right. Since I am not Polish speaking (or reading the language) I have not seen any relevant Polish surviving documents, and it would most likely be pretty useless anyway....
Oddly enough Kopanski and Polish Wings 22 is mentioned in the Bibliography section in our Bristol book, but Morgala's is not. In the Acknowledgements page, some Polish names stick out: Tomek Kopalski, Wojtek Matusiak, Piotr Mrozowski, Wojtek Sankowski and Piotr Wisniewski (my apologies if some of these are not Polish citizens) This may indicate one of them has alerted our authors about a possible printing error in Polish Wings 22.
Perhaps Phil Jarrett can shed some light over this discrepancy?
