Information please - What sidearms were used officially and unofficially by the Polish 1st Armoured Division both during training in the United Kingdom and during its advance in Western Europe, 1944-45?
I'm trying to find out not only what sidearm but also specifically type of holster/belt arrangement and the country of manufacture. (examples: did the Poles officially or unofficially use any Canadian made copies of British sidearms/holsters; did the Poles officially or unofficially use any other countries sidearms such as U.S. Government contract M1911 or M1911A1, Lend Lease Smith and Wesson or Colt .38 handguns, Argentinian Ballester-Molina .45 caliber pistols, Browning or Inglis Hi Power 9mm pistols, etc?)
Or did they just use British manufactured sidearms/webbing? Would they have a mixture of British, Canadian or other countries webbing?
