    Thank you again Andrzej for your help !!
    This is already a great help, yes.

    For Kowerko Jan i can add that he was wounded on 8th september close to the station of Roeselare; and died from his injuries in the hospital on the 10th september.

    Also there was one of the soldiers who was protsestant from relegion. Is it possible to find out who this is?


    Any further help or a possible way to it is much appreciated and welcome

    *Jan Kowerko was wounded at the station on the 7th, and later died from his injuries on the 10th september.

    *Zenon Maszynski was killed at the corner of the Groenestraat and Molenstraat

    *Czeslaw Melkowski was killed on the corner of the Alfons Carlierstraat and Groenestraat

    Hello Pieter,

    Many thanks for your reply, if you require more information, then the best course of action would be to write to the Polish Ambassador in Belgium asking for his help and state exactly what further information you require.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Best wishes
