    Default A.K. unit badges

    Hi Guys,

    A new thread for A.K. units badges

    To kick off with:

    Numbered award badge of Zgrupowania AK "Radosław"

    The 'Radosław' Group included many boy soldiers from the Polish Scouting Association (Szare Szeregi -Grey Ranks), and was commanded by Jan Mazurkiewicz (codename Radosław) who was also a commander of the elite Kedyw.

    Skorpian I think you posted the thread twice by accident

    Were these badges acually awarded during the war?
    If so I think Im going to have a heart attack from the ones I skipped!!

    Very Nice badge
    My Great Uncle was a member of a Resistance group which also made a camp in a forest where they hid themselves from the Germans with very much succes. His unit was stationed in the Zamosczyna area (Near the small town of Izbica (Which was a Ghetto during the war) my Grandpa recalled one time when him and the rest of his group were runing away as the Germans were surronding the forest but they shot themselves through the Germans and made it safely to another forest.

    Hi,
    I decided to show part of my polish underground badge collection.
    Most of the badges were produced in 80-ies. However some made in 60-ties, late 40-ties and even wartime exist (Agricola, Grupy Szturmowe, Korpus Bezpieczeństwa etc.)
    The first picture shows Warsaw Uprising related badges.

    I still have many of these but no time to frame them

    Here is an original wartime production badge of Korpus Bezpieczeństwa Wewnętrznego AK. These were made in 1941 in Kraków for officers of Organizacja Wojskowa-Korpus Bezpieczeństwa AK ( how stupid as for underground organisation). VI means district Kraków - OW-KBWAK had 9 districts.
