    Thanks for sharing these with us. I have an interest in Polish items and it was a pleasure to see these, made all the better in knowing that they came from a relative of yours.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Your fathers "Cross of Valour" should be researchable via the Sikorski Institute in London !!
    I managed to find my late father's original citation for his Cross of Valour there.


    Did he come to the 2nd Corp via Palestine - originally being released from the Soviet Gulags after the Soviet deportation purges in Poland in 1940 ?

    No not form the Gulags. He joined the Allies in 1940. After the battles in east-poland (against the Sovjets) he escaped to Romania. From there he travelled to western-Europe.
