GORCZYNSKI MIECZYSLAW the badge is numbered 1090 and in the Duplikat Legitymacja that came with it is s hown as number 654/1090 , the document is dated 12 v 42 and signed by gen. Kukial is there a way of checking it's authenticity, I don't have access to Jan Lory's excellent book . I am aware that sadly Plut. Gorczynski died on 8 July 1944 in the crash at Tinwell. I would appreciate your help. Thanks Frank Aniolkowski

    If it was the set on Allegro about a week ago, I'm afraid to say that there seemed to be some serious problems with the whole group.
    ... The wing looked to be cast, the legitimajcia was the wrong colour, and did not have the HQ rubber stamp, and the collars had suspicious style of prongs .

    Hello itpj,

    May I be the first to welcome you to War Relics, Major dypl. Jerzy Feliks Szymanski, born the 27th September 1909 died 21st February 1995 in London.

    Thats all that I could find after a brief look through Kpt Jan Lorys Book and the Rocznik Oficerski, no doubt some of the other members of the Forum will reply with more information for you.

    But I must say a very nice purchase being Numbered: 0009

    Best wishes
