Howdy folks, I was wondering if you might be able to help me in my research on my Great-grandfather, Jozef Szybkowski, a soldier in the Polish army at the outbreak of war. I'll start from the very beginning. He was born on the 9th of October 1914 in Daszyna, Leczyca county, Lodz Voivodeship, Poland. In 1937 he moved to Morawce to work at a farm, then on the 12th March 1938 he enlisted/conscripted into military service at Kutno, where he was stationed at the outbreak of war. On the 1st of September 1939 he prepared to fight, I believe he fought in the battle of Kutno, until he was shot (In the leg) and taken prisoner on the 18th of September 1939 then deported to a POW camp in Germany known as Stalag XA where he remained until the 20th of march 1943. On this date he was released for work on a farm called Handewithfelde(?). He stated that he had a decent time at the farm and was treated well by the German officer that owned it. Here he met my great-grandmother, Antonina Yeremenko, a Ukrainian 'Ostarbeiter" whom was deported from Nekrasovo in 1943 to work as a maid in the officers household, where they both remained until being placed into various POW/DP camps (Seperately) starting on the 8th of the 5th 1945. Past this point are a number of various DP camps/Polish camps and jobs for my Great-grandfather in the British Sector of Germany (Far from his wife, my GGrandmother whom he married just after the end of the war in Europe, 1945, probably so she would escape repatriation) until they and their 2 remaining children (one had died in a DP camp) all departed from Bremerhaven to Australia on July 16th 1950. Sadly, both have since passed away, before I was born. Thus I never got the chance to ask the multitude of questions I have today. So, my main concern at the moment is discovering which unit my GGrandfather belonged to, with some help from another forum, it has been suggested that he may have been part of a cavalry brigade. Can you tell anything from his uniform? This photo was likely taken pre-war.
