    Hello Ted and welcome to the forum.

    Very nice original photo, that same image can be found on pg. 15 of Walczace Skorpiony. Is your uncle the fourth from the left standing, the man with the firm jaw? What did he do in the regiment? I also had a great uncle in 4 Pulk Pancerny 'Skorpion' he was a tank mechanic with the LAD in No. 3 Squadron his name was (plut) Michal Krzywoszanski.

    Look forward to hearing from you.
    Chris.........
