    Attached is a photo of my dad in 3DSK on the left with a pal.

    Can anyone identify the armband that the man on the right is wearing?

    Hello Ted, and welcome to the forum.

    The wearing of the armband identified the Duty Officer (Oficer Dyżurny), a position usually held by an NCO.

    Here’s an original example that belonged to a lance sergeant serving in the 10th Battalion of the 4th Wołyński Infantry Brigade, 5KDP

    Please tell us more about your father and his 2nd Corps service.

    Regards,

    Thanks Tony for such a clear answer. Another small piece of information to add to the jigsaw puzzle.

    I'm afraid that I know very little of my father's service history as such.

    He was just another of the Siberian prisoners who got to Polish 2 Corps via Teheran, Iraq, Palestine and Egypt.

    I do not even know which Battalion of 3DSK he was serving in, but that he was at Monte Cassino and Bologna.

    Thank you Andrzej, so that is what Komp Sztab means? Is that an abbreviation?

    Hi Ted, yes, that's correct, it's the abbreviation for "Kompania Sztabowa" - HQ Company.

    Thanks for posting those documents.

    Cheers,
    Tony
