    Super news! I have one more bit of super news. A year ago, In August of 2014. The Standard 6th heavy artillery regiment from Lwow was handed over as a gift to the museum of World War II in Gdansk by the donor, whose family was associated with Lwow.

    The info for post #25, it was wrongly given information. The Standard was in the Museum of the Polish Army in Warsaw. It was returned from Berlin in 1971.

    In 2010, Krzysztof Jablonski found the Eagle from the Standard 64th Infantry Regiment in Kampinos. It is crowned with a silver eagle with a crown of gold. I had it written in my documents that he found a Standard, that was my mistake, I apologize.

    Hi Meyle77,

    Thank you kindly for your "September connection" item!
    Very interesting plate from 105mm field gun, 1913 pattern (wz 1913) designed by French Schneider company. Guns were used in Heavy Artillery Detachments of Infantry Divisions by Polish Army in 1939 (105mm were used by Haller's Blue Army in 1917-18, as well)

    Regards

    Antos !

    In post #22, you said, "in one instance, the sztandar of the 54th Infantry Regiment was uncovered in October following the end of the campaign. It was photographed and publish in a German book about the victory in Poland having been antedated to September to falsely convey that it was captured in combat."

    I found in my German newspaper from October 1939 and I'll add it here. It's the first propaganda publication, it's totally different because after the war we know what happened and who showed where the standard was located.

    Regards

    Robek

    Alex !

    Wow! It has at least 1.5 meter! Wonder where it was hung. It had to be somewhere high up since it's so big.

    Hi Alex,

    First time I am seeing that photo.. These soldiers have an enameled sign that were used to identify government buildings. These official signs are used to this day and just about identical to pre-war versions. And a word of warning to collectors that the modern signs are sometimes artificially aged and passed off as pre-war vintage.
