Great pictures. In the last picture, two guys on the left, look at their leg there appears to be something shiny there. Could be F-S knife ?
NIE ZAPOMNIJMY O KRESACH.

Many thanks for your post when awarded the Monte Cassino Cross the Recipients details were as follows:
Rank: Plutowny (Lance Sergeant)
Christian Name: Stanislaw
Date of Birth: 1901
Army Number : (also found on His ID Tags) : 1901-42-III
Unit: 13 Kompania Zaopatrywania i Transport
Stanislaw Bielen ended the war as a Sierzant (Sergeant) in the 18 Kompania Zaopatrywania, thats all that I could find except the following which I gleaned from the internet.
If this is the same person a Stanislaw Bielen left Southampton aboard the Queen Mary on the 7th April 1951 destination New York.
This Stanislaw Bielen became a US Citizen on the 23rd October 1959, he was married to a Bronislawa Burczyk (born 1st September 1906), Bronislawa Bielen died on the 4th March 1981 and is buried in St John's Cemetery, Conneticut. Stanislaw died on the 17th December 1989 whilst living at 35 Lennox Avenue, Stamford, Conneticut.
That is all that I could find hope that it is the right person, if not please accept my apologies.

last three from the group, first possibly in Scotland? the guard in the foreground sports polish insignia on his helmet, second a bypassed german pak 36 and lastly this could possibly be xmas celebrations 1945, I tried to make a closer scan of the pocket detail from the fellows around the aircraft to see what they are carrying in their trouser pocket, though the detail is not too clear, in hand it does appear they could be FS knives, but the scan does not pick up the detail, though can see a 1st pattern smock, and appear also the tails have been removed

Andrzej, thank you very much!
That's the same Dziadek, Stanislaw Bieleń who went through Ellis Island.
Is it possible to reconstruct little bit of his military life (II RP) from enclosed photos?
2nd photo is dated Lida 19/XII.1921 - he is standing - RT.
On 3rd photo (all standing) he is in the middle.

Many thanks for your post, luckily there were only 2 Stanislaw Burczyk's awarded the MCC and from the Engineers Badge I found the correct one.
When awarded the MCC His details were as follows:
Rank: Starszy Saper (Lance Corporal / Engineer)
Christian Name: STANISLAW
Date of Birth: 1916
Monte Cassino Cross Numbered: 25264
Unit: Dowodztwo Saperow 5KDP ( 5th Kresowa Division Engineers)
Fathers Name: WINCENTY
Stanislaw was a pre war soldier, therefore if you contact the Army Records Centre at Rembertow near Warsaw, they might be able to provide you with a copy of his service record pre 1939.
He was captured by the russians in Tarnopol on the 17th September 1939 and after being freed after the germans invaded russia in 1941, he joined the Ander's Army at Tatiszcewo on the 4th September 1941.
The only other information that I could glean was that whilst living in London, Ontario between 1995-2002 he lived at 393 Thiel Street, London, Ontario, NSW-4P7.
Stanislaw died in 2004 aged 87, his death was registered in Toronto.
That is all that I could find for you, I sincerely hope that it is of some use and help to you Jurek and my bill is in the post to you.
