    Good day

    Did the Polish army have a winter skiing school at Brzuchowice near Lwow? Also are there any books, insignia or images of soldiers (II RP) winter training/skiing? I've tried a Google search without much luck & I've tried odkrywca.pl but can't navigate the site very well.

    Hi Chris,

    Not much I can provide re. a Brzuchowice skiing school. But I can offer some photos of pre-war soldiers on skis. These are taken from a great book issued by the Museum of History in Sanok, Poland, the city that served as the base for the pre-WW2 2nd Podhale Rifles Regiment (2 Pułk Strzelców Podhalańskich).

    Also pictured is the badge of the Polish Skiing Union (Polski Związek Narciarski), which was often displayed on the uniform as pictured or commonly mounted on the Sam Browne belt shoulder strap.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Thanks for those great pictures Tony. Here is the image from my family album that got me asking. My uncle wrote on the back that this was taken during ski lessons at Brzuchowice near Lwow Dec 26, 1934. Judging by all the smiling faces and casualness this was more a unit social than training (or a little of both). I'm curious about the mural on the far wall dated 1*08 - 19** what does it represent? Was also wondering if anyone would care to comment on the uniforms and the barrack's layout. At this period my uncle was in the telegraph company of 11 Karpackiej Dywizji Piechoty, all these fellows are likely from this company.

    Hi Chris,

    The date could mark the origin of this particular ski lodge. Uniforms are wz.27 pattern.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    And the Polish Skiing Union (Polski Związek Narciarski) badge legitimation. This document belonged to to my grandfather



    Unfortunately the badge was lost with his uniform in 1940 when he was escaping from Hungary Internment Camp to Yugoslavia.
