    I hate that I only hear about these guys after they die.

    This is sad. I know you have spoken about him to me in the past.

    RIP

    Mr Urbanski was one of the Poles who crossed the Rhine, and was in the fighting around the Stationweg.
    In 2004, I stood outside the Schoonord with him, and he explained how himself and seven others dashed over the crossroads to the stationweg houses.
    In his words "The bullets being fired down the Utrecthweg was like horizontal rain".
    The eighth Pole in the group was shot down and killed. he body lay in the crossroads, and there was nothing that could be done for him.
