    Hello Steve,

    I have looked through the Register of the Order Virtuti Militari by Dr. Andrzej Suchcitz found no listing for Henryk Warszada, also not listed in Prof. Wesolowski's Order Virtuti Militari Register.

    Kpt. Jan Lorys Book of the recipients of the Polish Parachute Badsge lists him as follows:

    Entry Number: 6220. WARSZADA HENRYK Para Badge Nr: 4137, Combat Wreath Nr: 1082 Kapral 1SBS.

    So unfortunately not a recipient of the Virtuti Militari Order.

    Best wishes

    Hello Steve,

    Gleaned a little bit more for the internet re Henryk Warszada I have found the following

    1) St. Strz. Henryk Warszada listed in the Materialy Book of the 1st Independent Parachute Group

    2) St.Strzelec Henryk Warszada also fought with the Independent Carpathian Rifle Brigade at Tobruk, perhaps Thomas the Tank Engine can confirm the award of the SBSK badge to him.

    3) Henryk Warszada Born 1st February 1916, Married in 1953 Irene Oates Gowshall (Born in 1930), Henryk died in Huddersfield on the 12th July 2003 aged 87, Irene had already died in 2001.

    4) If this is the correct Henryk Warszada then please find attached a late in life photo

    Hello CollinC,

    May I welcome you to the forum, I have looked through Kpt Jan Lorys Book on recipients of the Parachute Badge with no joy in finding a FRANCISZEK BROTZ.

    Do you have the correct spelling of his Surname.

    Best wishes
