    Hello,
    It should be interesting for you:

    Secret Operations of Polish Officers in London - Project Eagle

    WW II US archive movie saying about Polish special agents trained by OSS.

    The soldiers mentioned in the movie were mainly previous soldiers from Independent Grenadier Company (Samodzielna Kompania Grenadierow - SKG).

    Maj. Szymanowski was last commander of SKG.

    Dear Gary, i just wanted share with you and fellow collectors a contact i have made through some of my research. Im sure many other sons of Genreal Anders Army may be bereft of their family history. (It never semed an issue when they were alive). She doesnt charge and is brilliantly helpful.

    The Anthroponymic Centre in the Polish Language Institute, where I am the manageress, has never been engaged in doing genealogical research of particular people or families. We couldn’t do it as in our Institute there is no documental material that could enable us to do such a work. As linguists and not genealogists we can help our correspondents in following matters:

    a. in letting them know the proper spelling of the very often deformed Polish surnames.

    b. in explanation of the structure and meaning of a Polish family name formed in the moment in which a particular name had been given to its first bearer.

    c. in explanation of proper spelling and localization of the localities quoted by a correspondent.

    d. in giving the information about how many people, of the same surname, live in the present-day Poland and in which provinces of it they reside now. Alas, no addresses and other personal data have been published anywhere. Such data are protected with us by law and cannot be revealed without approval of the involved person.

    Warmest regards Rob

    The 70th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid has just passed. I was looking at the link to Monuments Polonais WW2 and came across a monument that mentions the Dieppe Raid. Were Poles involved? There is a reference to Polish airmen on the monument as well as an insignia that I don't know.

    Name:  Polish Dieppe Raid plaque.jpg

    As a Canadian, the Dieppe Raid was a sacrifice (and controversy) known to those who are interested in Canadian military history. But I was unaware of any Polish involvement. Can anyone enlighten me?
