    Tucholski only covers Cichociemni who jumped back into Poland.

    46665 - Parachute Badge numbers never went this high.

    The number is 4665 - PPOR Tadeusz Krala. French section Cichociemni.
    As with many Cichociemni issuing of wreaths was not as clear cut as the 1SBS for whatever reason I'm not sure.

    Rafal says that this wreath is "not regular wreath - fantasy or private initative"

    I cant comment on the badge, but I dont like the Cross of Valor looks like a copy in my opinion but im not very familiar with Exile Cross`s of Valor.
    The cross is good Emil! I'll eventually cover this variant on the PSZnZ Cross of Valour thread. Stay tuned . . .

    Cheers,
    Tony

    I can now report the "Stolen wing and KW" of Tadeusz Krala has been sucessfully returned to the family.
    With thanks to the San Francisco Police Department, and the people involved (They know who they are ) from Poland, England, and the USA without who's effort this could not have been achieved.

    Tadeusz Krala jumped into France near Lille and was entitled to a combat wreath.
    As mentioned, the Chicociemni system of adding the wreath seems to have been confused, subsequently operatives who had completed a mission (missions) took it off their own back to copy the wreath to the best of their ability and add it to their parachute badge.


    Tadeusz Krala's badge and wreath are 100% legit and contemporary.

    Noting that some operatives after a mission did not bother to attempt to add a wreath of any type ... hence the confusion in this matter.
