    Default Polish 4th armoured regiment collar badge find

    just thought I would share a metal detecting find from a former training area in southern England - a rather nice Polish 4th Armoured Regiment "Skorpians" collar badge. I can find no record of them training in this area as was used predominantly by the Canadians, and have found noting else relating to the Poles, but clearly at least some of them were here.

    Hello Harry, nice find. It cleaned up rather well. Iíve seen quite a few that never spent any time in the soil with much less surviving paint. Thanks for sharing your find with us .

    If you check a bit further through any extant records you may find that there was a camp in this area immediately post-war where soldiers of the Polish 2nd Corps arriving from Italy in 1946/47 were housed.

    Cheers,
    Tony
