    Default polish ww2 photo id

    hi everyone, trying to help my godfather out .
    he found this photo of his dad during ww2 and wondered if i could help him. he knows nothing of his dads service so i wondered if anyone could help via the cap badges and uniform shown, as polish ww2 is not my field of knowledge.

    i would really appreciate any pointers.
    kind regards

    There were Polish units in North Africa and in Italy and I would guess these are from one of those areas. They served with honour and Polish troops were those that captured Monte Cassino.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Just to add that the Caps are GS cap and these were introduced in autumn 1943 so Italy is most likely.

    I would agree with Jerry.

    Polish 2nd Corps is your best bet.
