    Hi Alex !

    Ha ha ha ................I wanted to show that picture yesterday but my computer was acting up. The picture you're showing is only half of what I have. I found it on Ebay a couple years ago, I was satisfied with it.

    Alex, I am afraid You are spreading german propaganda....

    Colonel Kazimierz Satora in his book says that the only thing that was Captured was the 4th SK Trumpet banner.....

    One standard that the german feature prominently was gotten by betrayal, a volksdeutch told german where it was hidden in Church. So the word "captured " would not apply.

    Also look at how many Regiments fought in 1939, and look at the Zeughaus display in Berlin....

    There were 10 Polish Armies with many Regiments fighting, if you look at numbers and compare it , even their propaganda numbers of "captured" Standards are very small comparing to how many Regiments with Standards there were.
    NIE ZAPOMNIJMY O KRESACH.
