    By the way, I used to know a few former 2nd Polish Corps servicemen who returned to Poland. None of them got the Grunwald Berlin badge but some of them were awarded Polish state decorations in the 80's after they joined ZBoWiD.

    Stefan, maybe he did not have to convince the commies. Maybe he was a pre-war leftist...
    Not sure that would explain it because Stalin had already arrested and deported the official prewar Polish communist party officials so being a leftist would not IMO have meant this would put a former 2PolCorp soldier above suspicion of being an agent of Anders especially considering in 1947 the Polish communists had still not wrested total control of the country from the various Polish independentist factions which the communists accused of being supported by Anders from the West. It is a curiosity.

    Mirrors my experience also.
    I collect, therefore I am.

    Nothing in science can explain how consciousness arose from matter.

    It is. Maybe he was a Soviet spy in the 2nd Polish Corps. Without knowing his background we are just guessing.

    The original paint has been removed ... THEN the eagle has been applied .....
    Not good. .... More than likely a modified re-enactor piece.

    Hi!

    I am sure about one thing with this badge: there is new screw attached in place of the original element. Spinner looks to be ok.

    Best Regards
