My first post so here goes.
My dad died a few years ago and never really wanted to speak about the war. We still have his uniform c/w badges and wondered if any light could be shed on it.
It looks like the badge of the 3 Silesian Lancers, but I always understood that my dad was in the 16th Lancers, Bydgozsz from 1936 until the start of the war. He was taken prisoner and drafted into the Wehrmact 16th (Geisen) infantry, scarpered from these guys whilst in Italy in 1943 ish, got over to Naples, surrendered to the Yanks, shipped over to Egypt and went back into Italy with the Polish 2 Corps, 14th Armoured. If anyone can shed any light on what may have taken place I would be grateful.
I'll post some pics of his uniform etc.
