    Hi Laura, and welcome to the forum,

    The photo pictures three young Poles, privates enlisted in the 64 Grudziądzki Infantry Regiment. The photo was likely between 1927 and 1935.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Tony,

    Thank you so very much for the quick response. Are there on-line resources I might be able to look at for more information about this part of the Polish Army? I'm researching for a client who's grandfather's brothers are in this picture; she knew nothing of his origins other than having this picture. His naturalization papers indicate he was Russian/Polish but I suspect this was more an issue of the malleable borders than anything else. Again, thank you very much for your help.

    Hi Laura, sorry for the slow reply. There's not too much English language info on the web. Here's an auto-translated version of the Wikipedia entry:

    And here's a couple of Polish language links:
