    Hello, as the subject line says I know this ruin was visited by Polish soldiers and personnel while on leave in Italy. Can appreciate itís a bit of a one off question but Iíve never come across any images of Poles touring Pompeii. If anyone has images I would love to see them.

    Just to give my question some context here is an image of the Pompeii tourist booklet my great uncle purchased. This visit was a week or two after his armored unit withdrew for rest in the rear area after combat at Monte Cassino.

    Default Pompei, Włochy.

    Through the kind help of an individual at the Kresy-Siberia website two images were found at Karta.
