    Thanks a lot for your straight-out support Andrzej!

    As always, your answers make this world better)
    Saw the message from the grandson of the Józef Kołota
    on a PISM facebook wall, which he posted about one year ago. Decided to help find an answer for his question.
    Said him about this great forum & provide your answer about his ancestor, but unfortunately he offline yet. Think that it will be a big surprise for him.

    Also trying to sort out is that my great-grandfather on the military family photo or not (inside truck)?

    Looks like this kind of sunglasses were given to a soldiers who was a driver in the army or may be they bought it by himself to protect eyes from the glare approaching cars.

    As I said earlier, from the words of my grandfather, great-grandfather after he was wounded, became a personal driver of the officer.
    He said that it was pułkownik (in the 3 KPAPL was only one pułkownik dowodca 3 KPAPL Leon Przybytko), but I think that he was wrong, because on the 593 Hill photo, which I posted previously, when Andrzej, posted a cartoon to the 3 KPAPL officers, seems that he stand most of all near zastepca III dywizjon kpt. Feliks Szymonski & also I remember that they was a near age to each other.
    My great-grandfather born 1907 kpt. Feliks Szymonski born 1906.

    Also I remember story, when some day they went together to a some monastery and a local priest treated them a monastery wine and they drunk all together so much that couldn't stand from the table. I think that the pułkownik dowodca 3 KPAPL
    unlikely drink like that with an ordinary soldiers.

    May be is it possible for someone post a little bit photos with soldiers who was a driver in a II Corps or wore a sunglasses?

    On the first photo soldier wear a beret and looks like he in a rank of "kapral" like my great-grandfather for that moment. The small white point from the left side of eagle similar to Jerusalem Cross.

    Monte Cassino cross

    And one more question for me, why he wear a strange coat, which looks like a
    leather jacket & do not include any rank or dywizjon patches on his left shoulder?
    Do you have any idea about that?

    Post some more photos of my great-grandfather Gajewski Walerian:

    Hello Valerii,

    Many thanks for your reply and post, I am always happy to help when I can, both the photographs I would say where taken after the german surrender in Europe after 8th May 1945, because in the truck they have no webbing equipment or side arms.

    I know from my wife's family photographs it is a real pain when no one deemed it necessary to put a name on the back of a photograph so to give a Name to a Face.

    Your Great Grandfather in the Italian heat would have probably been allowed to remove his Battledress Tunic and just be in shirt sleeve order.

    Hopefully some other Forum member will also add their thoughts on the Photographs.

    Best wishes

    Andrzej

    Hi, thank you for sharing! I downloaded the first book in one PDF file. But the 2nd link you provided does not allow me to download all the files in one PDF - instead, I am required to save each file/image individually. But there are almost 30 images, and then even once I save them, they are all separate files. Is there a way to download the entire 2nd book in one PDF file? I hope I am explaining myself
