    And I happened to run across this article, it is titled " Unbroken defender of independent (Poland)" and it features Waclaw Lipinski, VM, who was murdered in communist prison in 1949. They quote a letter from him to none other than Cpt Malinowski (I think they were both Legionares) and in the letter dated in 1942 Lipinski says that he fears not the germans but the soviets. How right he was in 1942.......

    KOP/PAL Buttless Stens, Warsaw

    A total of approximately 100 of these buttless Sten copies were made up by Edward Wloczkowski and Stefan Nawrocki for the Komenda Obroncow Polski/ Polska Armia Ludowa (Headquarters of the Defenders of Poland/Polish People's Army) KOP/PAL resistance organization in a workshop at 1 Gniewskowska Street.

    The KOP/PAL guns were "discovered" in 1976. Inside a wood stove in a house being demolished on Lelechowska Street in Warsaw were drawings and plans for the buttless Sten copy, along with five barrels. When this was publicized, former resistance cell members involved in the production of these guns came forward and supplied details of the guns' production, including that they had been designed by Stefan Engler and Michel Adamowicz.

    Here is a " safe passage " flyer that the germans were sending on Warsaw during Uprising.
    What is interesting about this one is that says that germans are only fighting with communist, and those who allow themselves to be exploited as a communist tool no matter under what slogan will be held accountable.

    In respect of # 1. I am Janusz's nephew and I am interested in more definitive reports about Janusz Cezary Ketling-Szemley. To add to the commentary about the death sentence I can add that an attempt was made to carry it out. Till he died my uncle actually carried one of the bullets. My source for this information in Janus's 2nd wife.
