It's my first post on this forum and I would like you a show my grandfather mementos:
Hello Sebastian, and welcome to the forum.
It's very good to see your grandfather's items are safe in your hands.
It looks like your grandfather served in the Carpathian Rifle Brigade, then followed on to the 3rd Carpathian Rifle Division, and in the course of his duties, he was wounded.
I have a few more documents and pictures from his service.
He was in SBSK as a wachmistrz Żandarmerii (Sergeant Major of Polish MP) and he was wounded (in 18 january 1942) at Lamaluda village near Derna.In action he lost his right hand.
I presume that he never wore 3 DSK badge because in August 1942 he has been moved to Claiwood near Durban to become a liaison officer there.
At last I posted some documents from his service on forum:

A very nice grouping of paperwork !
My late father was in the 3DSK, .. and actually docked for a day at Durban during his troop movement from the Middle East to Britain.
Very nice grouping!
Can you show more details of collar tabs?
Another thank you for sharing your grandfather’s items with us. A wonderfully comprehensive group, and very fortunate to have been saved at the last minute from destruction. It’s great to see that they are now in the hands of someone who appreciates what they represent and that they are assured of receiving good care. The “Season’s Greetings” card the first one like it I’ve seen.
Many thank again
