    I wonder what happened to his VM... maybe this was also sold at some point? Pity if the group of awards and documents was split up.

    yes i have got that thesis in pdf but need to read it!
    i dont know whether there's specific text from my grandad or not? we knew he was interviewed a few times!
    it's a shame he never really spoke to us much about it.
    we know he did some interesting thing's and was still worried about them and his secrecy when he was well in to old age!

    Spoke to the seller, unfortunately the Gapa was it. He bought it at an auction sometime in 2005 by itself. Cpt Bidzinski/Ziege died in Warsaw in 1988.

    It is always a pity these important historical groups get split up, but I guess the upside is that the history is shared by more than one collector.
