    Hello Shellshocker,

    Many thanks for your post, I have managed to trace information on one of the owners of the Bracelets that was Jerzy Gostkiewicz

    Rank : Kapitan

    Surname : Gostkiewicz

    Christian Name : Jerzy

    Date of Birth : 23rd February 1897

    Place of Birth : Warszawa (Warsaw)

    Fathers Name : Emil

    Army Number : 1897-11-III

    Pre 1939 he was promoted to Porucznik (Lieutenant) on the 1st June 1919 he was 13th in seniority and was serving in the 5th Motorised Squadron, during the wars of 1918-1921 to establish Polands Border he was awarded the Cross of Valour (Krzyż Walecznych).

    By the September 1939 Campaign he had been promoted to Kapitan (1st January 1935 and was 5th in seniority) he had also been awarded the Cross of Independence (Krzyż Niepodległości) and the Silver Cross of Merit (Srebrny Krzyż Zasługi), he was by then serving in the 7 Baon Pancerny (7th Armoured Battalion).

    By September 1939 he was the Officer in charge of Mobilization for the Battalion.

    I could not find any further information on him during WW2, but I did find further information in 1956 :

    London Gazette, Issue Number : 40806, Page : 3502 Dated : 15th June 1956

    Authentic Polish ID Bracelets?

    Entry for the award of British Citizenship to Jerzy Gostkiewicz on the 27th April 1956.

    Jerzy (George) Gostkiewicz died in 1977 in Merton, Surrey

    with regards to the other bracelets I could not make the name out on the Polish Airforce one, if you let me know the name I will do some research for you.

    Best wishes

    Andrzej

    I really appreciate it that’s a lot of info! I’m not too worried about the others so it’s fine you weren’t able to get them. I really appreciate it thank you so much!
