    Ok, though not a Militaria disply & only a scanned image I offer my contribution to this thread. Christmas in the town square of Potenza Picena 1946 with the 4th Skorpion Armoured Regiment which my great uncle Michal Krzywoszanski participated. I believe in each gift the children received gloves, shoes, chocolate and fruit. To this day Poles and their decendents are very well recieved in this small Italian own.

    Hello,
    I believe I have already proposed these cards, but in the doubt, I post again :

    Here’s a small booklet put together for Christmas 1942, dedicated “to all Polish prisoners of war from your comrades in Camp VI B”. The intention was to have it distributed to other Polish POW camps, and it appears that this may have been successful to a degree as this booklet is part of a grouping of items from a Polish officer interned at Oflag VII-A Murnau. The editor-in-chief was credited as General Leon Berbecki.

    It contains the Christmas account of the Gospel of Luke in the New Testament, the words to some Christmas carols, and other Christmastime entries such as this heartfelt poem which must have tugged at the heartstrings of those soldiers now imprisoned for three years in bleak circumstances. Here’s a quick translation of the first part, which is written using Polish diminutives conveying mother’s emotions and love for her son which can’t help but get lost in translation (as are the rhyming words).

    A Christmas Eve Letter from Mom

    I am writing to you dear son from afar, from home
    The snow flakes brush against the windows -
    I am remembering days of old – and am secretly
    crying. . . you my dear son understands the tears of a mother

    The Christmas tree is up . . . you know, near the table
    I’ll sit down, just as in the past, with your sisters three -
    And together our thoughts are not ones of joy
    That you, my son, today are not in our midst

    You are there all alone, in some far off place,
    Like us are counting the passing moments . .
    .
