    Default Newsreel footage with Polish troops

    Hiya, I found this while searching for ATS newsreels. The Polish troops are not even mentioned in the captions

    BROCKHURST MATERIAL - British Pathé

    But there are some nice shots of the 1st Armoured flashes and the helmet eagles.

    Cheers, Lez.

    Lez,
    .. Yes there is some good images on Pathe ....
    The Poles seemed to like the idea of promoting their struggle, and thus there are quite a few news reels and footage of them training and parading on British soil.

    I still hope that at some point the PISM will decide to digitise and release the Polish Para film "The Shortest Way" ... which has loads of film of the Polish Para's in training etc ..

    Cheers

    Helo Lez - thanks for your post! First time I am seeing this footage of Polish exile government President Władysław Raczkiewicz. Most interesting. And agreed re. the good crisp view of the helmet eagles (screen shot image posted below).

    Cheers,
    Tony
