Gents, I would like to share with you some evidence suggest of existing diffrent colour of Polish Paras beret during WW2 (other than grey and green/grey), Which I found. Please find attached photos below. First picture desciption: Ignacy Pelc, Polish soldier, 11th Polish Signals battalion in Italy, 1943
Second picture(group photo) Personnel of the 11th Polish Signals Battalion in Italy 1944.
Ignacy Pelc went to Italy with 2nd Corps, and then was sent to the special, diversion unit, called Base 11(part of the 11th Polish Signals Battalion?) His unit were corresponding with the AK( Polish Underground Army)
These soldier wore BD wit Polish Paras collars(few others as well)Para badge....and dark blue or black? beret.
If unit were only small group from 11th Polish signals battalion attached to Para's why some of them wore Paras BD and dark berets, and the rest FS caps, standard BD, et cetera.
If these soldier wore these berets temporary why they wore Paras BD?
They had waited for new stock/ supply?
By the way one soldier from group photo: down upper right has unusual BD cuff.
In my humble opinion, this is very interesting find.
Gents, I wonder what do you think. I will greatly appreciate your opinions. Thank you.
