    Many thanks for looking, i will send them a request for data, i was warned that he changed his name when getting citizenship so it might be different in the war, which doesnt help.

    Hello Ben,

    Many thanks for your reply, do you have any of your Grandfathers Paperwork including his AB64 or Legitymacja for his Polish Army Medal or British Stars or 2nd Corps Badge etc., these would confirm his name if he changed it during the war.

    I have also had a quick look at the London Gazette to see if he was listed without any luck, do you know when he applied and was granted British Citizenship?

    Best wishes
