    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Ciechanowski_(diplomat) "Jan Maria Włodzimierz Ciechanowski (15 May 1887 – 16/19 April 1973) was an economist and diplomat. He was the envoy of Poland to the United States from 1925 to 1929, and later the ambassador of Poland (Polish government-in-exile) to the United States from 1940 to 1945. From 1939 to 1940 he was the secretary-general of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland." The Evening Star. June 14, 1942, Image 46, bottom of cols 6 &7 chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83045462/1942-06-14/ed-... indicates that he and his wife had 3 sons. The oldest (presumably the older in this picture) was also Jan and was with the Polish forces in Scotland. The middle son, not given a first name, was about to graduate from the training school for the Royal Air Force. The youngest boy (not born in 1925) was described as still "a lad in school." A 1973 obituary in the New York Times indicates that his wife was the former Gladys Koch de Gooreynd and that a son, Ladislaus, was killed in 1942 while flying with the Royal Air Force. This is probably the younger boy in this photo. The oldest boy, anglicized as John, and the youngest, Stanislau, (not born by 1925), were still alive when their father died.
