    On the 3 pages shown above can be seen clearly the entry for Kpt. Wincenty Brożych.

    All the above are from captured records kept by the germans and when the Prisoner of War Camp was liberated by the 101st Cavalry Regiment of the US Army they found 5,435 Polish Officers of various ranks including 23 Generals.

    The above records are now held in the USA.
