    Question Are there any Polish Veterans Organizations?

    Hi,
    It's been a couple of years since I posted here, this might not be the best place for my query but I figured you guys might know.

    I have had some good conversations with my Grandfather over the last few years and understand so much more now than I used to.
    Unfortunately he passed away last week, and of course I wish I'd had more time.

    However, talking to my mum it seems he outlived most of his friends, at least that my mum and aunt know of, which lead me to wonder if there are any organizations that keep in touch with Polish Veterans in the UK or elsewhere?

    Grandad was in the 13th Wilenski Rifles from about September 1944 and ended up settling in the UK through the resettlement corps.

    Thanks

    Jim

    Sorry to hear of your Grandfather's passing.
    Here is a website of the main Polish Combatants Association: Zwi
    Only in Polish I'm afraid but hopefully will be of some help.

    cheers

    Likewise sorry to hear of another Polish veteran no longer with us.
