    Here is a neat grouping allegedly belonging to Miroslaw Siestrzencewicz-Bohusz which just sold at auction. What branch/unit/service do the collar patches represent? Also the rank appears different on the tunic and the beret, maybe someone else's beret, or an "unofficial" upgradeVery Interesting Offciers GroupingVery Interesting Offciers GroupingVery Interesting Offciers GroupingVery Interesting Offciers GroupingVery Interesting Offciers GroupingVery Interesting Offciers Grouping in rank in the later years.

    Thanks for your post, and welcome to the forum. An interesting set. This chap seems to have bounced around a bit. As far as the collar insignia, the colour rendition of the photo might be off a bit, but they appear to be 4th Infantry Division infantry battalion tabs. Some research into this officer would confirm that.

    Regards,

    Dear Gentlemen, thank you for your kind words of welcome and you insight into this groping. Great insight and information! Do the insignia all make sense on the tunic? The set along with the beret certainly appears original, any thoughts? - Kind Regards - Dave.
