    Her grave is somewhere in Toruń but i'm not sure if its easy to visit like public ones can be, i think her foundation has printed/worked in unison and funded a lot of written works also. Next time in there i will see what pics i can do and also ask what information/Archives or Relics they they have as regards to the Pomorski AK.

    Unfortunately a common feature of the Uk, robbing metals from graves, and stealing plaques for scrap..... I hope that this is not the case. Where did you pic it up?

    Postion 93 of the list trained in UK but never jumped to homeland is Edmund Mnich, nicknamed EDA. My grandfather name was Edmund Mnich. He ended the WW2 in UK, having served in the Anders` Army. However, I don1t have any infomation that he was in such a training. Can anyone advice how can I confirm wether its indeed his name, not a coincidence?

    Thanks for help,
    Radek

    Greetings Radek,

    I would recommend that you contact Link: SPP-PUMST organistation in London with your grandfather's name, date of birth, and any other details you have. SPP-PUMST keep all the records of the Polish Underground (records created by the Polish government- in-exile that is) including records of cichociemny.

    Good luck with your research and please don't forget to let us know what you find out
