    English: History of the Polish paratroops badge from "cichociemni" by Tucholski.


    I don't quite understand Tucholski's reference note:

    1: Unlike the frequently mistaken reports that this was the badge of the 1st SBSpad., Comp. Witold Biegański Regularne jednostki Wojska Polskiego na Zachodzie, Warszawa 1967, p. 239.

    That note is in reference to the GQ parachute wing.

    This has been mistaken by many as the "1st" Polish issued parachute wing.

    Some cross references to the GQ wing ...
