Yes, it was interesting to learn that the refrigeration ships were so old. I wonder what cooling agent was used.

Those aircraft were intended to survive few months of operational service at best. Nobody worried if glues like Kaorit would survive to the next century. Low quality of wartime production also...

There are plenty of stories on Brzeski, though I would have to recall some of them. He was involved in shooting down a BOAC Liberator, which was mistook for a Condor.
