Polish army - France & Portugal

  1. #1

    Default Polish army - France & Portugal


    Thought of sharing this very interesting set of papers, all belonging to one individual who was in the Polish army, and managed to escape to France around 1939-1940.

    His papers start with Polish consulate issued passport, then emergency escape papers to Portugal, where he remained until 1944, leaving to England. After the war he returned back to Poland, in 1947.

    Interesting set of Polish army papers as well.

    Nice group of documents there!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...

    I believe the French 1942 travel document was issued because he could have not used the Polish passport...would have caused problems with the Germans...

    Hi Neil, thanks for posting an interesting set of documents. This thread actually fits better in the Armed Forces in the West section, so will move it there . . .

    It's amazing and sad, a bit, after all he went through, to return back to the east, behind the iron curtain.

    When I started collecting passports 6 years ago, I could only find at first Polish examples. And from then onwards I have acquired a strong passion for Second Republic passports: 1918-1922 and 1939 to 1945. I also like issued samples from 1946 to 1951.
