    Dear Andrzej, As ever... thank you. Very complete and thorough work... can I just confirm:
    46258 - 42659 - Polowie Laboatorium Amunio - should that be 42669?

    Pretty much done now. I'll put this all together and put it up in the morning. Thank you again.

    Best regards, Mark

    Lance Corporal (St.szer.) Wisnicki, Pawel 1902/113/III MCC#41755

    Wiśnicki Paweł son of Tomasz POW in 1939 imprisoned by the NKVD in SevZhelDorLag [Northern Railway Corrective Labour Camp] in Komi before being sent to Juża Prison Camp. After the amnesty, he joined the Polish army in Tatiszczewo, September 1941. Apparently he returned to Poland after the war.

    5 (Polish) Casualty Clearing Station was, as far as I have been able to establish, stationed here:

    This is a KMZ file that will open in GoogleEarth. It has the location and known dates of stay. The ones in the USSR and Iran you can ignore as they are specific to MY grandfather. 5 CCS starts from Kirkuk in 1943. are the Polish Institute/Sikorski Museum photographs of 5CCS taken in 1946. are my family photographs of 5CCS

    Final point; whereas in Polish the name of the facility changes in 1945 to become a Szpital Polowy [Field Hospital], in English it did not change until it arrived in the UK where it became 5 (Polish) General Hospital in Italy it remained a Casualty Clearing Station.

    Best regards, Mark Ostrowski

    Andrzejku thank you so much for all your help and an additional thank you to Thomas the Tank Engine - this is brilliant news although getting hold of a replacement badge for the set we have is igoing to be very difficult indeed. Does anyone out there know where to get a replica SBSK badge for framing while were trying to get the real thing?

    Once again thanks to eveyone for all there help

    Here's a graphic I made back in 2005 for another forum. It shows why the hill the Abbey stood on was considered important. It's a Google earth view.

    Best regards, OSTRO

    Hello Lee,

    ebay or the Polish auction site Allegro have copies for sale from time to time, but you never know you might just find the real one somewhere.

    Best wishes
