    Iíve been researching my grandfatherís Polish military history and this forum and members have been a huge asset at translating, identifying and sourcing information and items. Just wanted to thank you all and I will share photos of this project Iím working on soon.
    I have been lead to believe that the reoccurring man in these photos is my grandfathers brother (unknown first name) Filipowski. There is no information on the back of the photos so I have no where to start. Any information or educated guesses are welcome.
    Who knows... by chance one of your relatives may also be in these photos.... it is a small world after all.
    Thanks

    Below, these are Poles in the one of the US Army Labour Service Units, Germany. You can just make out the red and white insignia shield on the sleeve of the soldier on the far right. There is an identification number on the vehicle he is standing next to so this might help identify the unit?

    Those are my guesses although Great Britain and US Labour Service, Germany are 100% certainties
    I collect, therefore I am.
