You're correct in Wilfred doesn't sound Polish. Maybe it was a nickname (which is likely) or he was english with polish ancestry? I didn't find any polish sounding surnames in the Fleet Air Arm losses for flying crew named Wilfred. The RAF losses also don't seem to have a match.

I searched the 1940-1947 Polish Air Force lists for a Wilfred and had no luck either.

And here is every Wilfred there is in the various databases for RAF, Bomber Command and Fleet Air Arm.

Without more information it's very difficult to proceed. Here's a link to some information on the Polish aircrew in Britain if he was indeed polish. Is there any birth information listed anywhere?
