    After the German invasion he was released and joined the Anders Army at Tatiszczewo on the 4th September 1941.

    After the end of the war he came to the UK where he met and married Kathleen J Wright in Gloucester in 1950, in 1952 he was granted British Citizenship (Reference: London Gazette Issue Dated 15th September 1952, Page 4354.
