    Interesting document. Looks like he was travelling to either become part of or talk to the Polish Government in Exile based in London, non-communist. From memory Warsaw, what was left of it, had been 'liberated' by the Red Army so if anyone was travelling it was presumably under communist sponsership. Didn't the London Poles travel to Poland immediately after the war to hold talks with the Russian led Polish communist government, free elections were promised by Stalin, only to be arrested and taken to Moscow, not withstanding Stalins promise of no interference. Wonder if this person had any hand in that, setting the scene and promising the promises.
    There were, surprisingly, regular flights from the U.K to Sweden throughout the war. I believe that they were undertaken under the cover of saying they were BAOC flights, thus civilian, and not subject to seizure as a military aircraft would have been. Having said that i'm sure i have read that PoW's were brought from Sweden, having escaped from occupied Europe, in a Mosquito fighter bomber suitably painted in civilian colours, and very cramped.

    The first one really doesnt say to much. It says he has bean given and all those numbers and letters. Im pretty sure its a list of things he has been given or got regularly. This was descided by the size of family and stuff.
    I dont know what each letter stood for, but it seems at least he got 3 of something in size 38 and one in 39. Shoes?
    In the middle it says that it was changed due to something to do with a change in the system i think. Im sorry this i really vague, but i have really trouble understanding that handwriting.

    The stamp says hassela "Crisisboard". They handed controlled things that were rationed under the war in sweden (each area had their own crisisboard that did this)
