    Hello,
    Here is the account of a polish veteran who speaks about "Caron School" where was the 12th batallion... Again found by André.



    BBC - WW2 People's War - Village to Village: From Poland to Britain

    "Our HQ was moved to Kinaird House, Larbert outside Falkirk. Our company was stationed in Carron school. We were given new field radios in motorised vans. We went on excercise with the Scottish army for 2 weeks. In a small village square Tellibody? or Tillicoultry? I cannot remember now, I was chatted up by a young Scottish woman. I declined as I dare not leave the radio."

    I have so indicated to the owner of this paybook I could not propose it on my blog (only 1rst pol arm div) and I identified it for him and... he was not happy... collectors are strange sometimes...
    ZP

    Gentlemen

    This badge for the 2 Korpus Służba Warsztatowo-Naprawcza but is it real? I can only find one example to compare it with the Wojciechowski/Sawicki book. The spinner looks correct but different colour but the badge isn't numbered. I believe this to be a fake or copy. Am I correct?

    Many thanks

    Hi James, You are correct. It's a copy - both badge and spinner. Genuine example posted below.

    Hi grosz,

    First off, there are some deceptive fakes of the Independent Carpathian Rifles Brigade badge floating about the market. I know first hand as one of my first badges purchased was one of these “Tobruks”, and it was a fake

    This one’s a tough call. That ‘blob’ on wing visible in the upper left is troubling. Genuine examples typically have a completely flat smooth reverse face. On the other hand, the serial numbering looks good. Any pics available of the obverse?

    Regards,
    Tony

    Hi grosz,

    I agree with Tony, this badge looks for me very strange...

    That I marked the place of my concerns about the originality...

    The 3DSK patch bottom left is a modern fake, so there's some evidence suggesting a cobbled together group. Perhaps Andrzejku will surface and run a check on some of the numbers for us.
