    Default Can anyone offer more information about my father's Polish Paratroopers Badge?

    I found my father's badge in my mother's belongings when she passed. I would appreciate any information about the engraving and numbers on the back of the badge. The number on the eagle appears to be 0656. My father's surname was Wagner. Thank you so much in advance!

    I have found some additional items - hoping someone can shed light as to their significance. There appears to be a bracelet of sorts with my father's name engraved as well ss a pin that says "Warranted Superior". Thank you again!

    Hello Meannie,
    2nd Lieutenant Leslaw Wagner was the Ade-De-Camp in the 1st Battalion HQ Company.
    He was at "Market-Garden" (Arnhem), and jumped on the 23rd September at Grave in Holland.

    There's not too much more to go on, .... unless you are prepared to retrieve his war record from the MOD archives.

    Regards

    Gary J.

    Thank you Gary. How does one begin to request war record from MOD(Ministry of Defense)?
