    Hello everybody. I recently received a letter from the Central Archives in Warsaw telling me that my Great Grandfather, Jozef Szybkowski served with the 37th Łęczycki Regiment, 26th Infantry division, Armia Poznan (Later Pomorze) from February 1938 - September 1939. He fought at Kutno until capture. Does anybody know where to find photographs of the regiment from the pre-war period? Any information is greatly appreciated.

    Hello TheSovietSamurai,

    Something else that I have found the Legitymacja card that your Great Grandfather would have received along with his Regimental Badge for the 37pp. This one Numbered 5175 was issued in 1937 (click to enlarge the photograph)
