    Polish WWII SOF and Airborne insignia.
  1. Hello, Here is the photo of Tice: His wife (widow) receiving posthumous decoration: Modern photo of Burnham: Cecil Lee was not US parachutist. He was British NCO from 1st Airborne Division. There is a mistake on Lorys' list. Greetings Rafal
  2. Hello Gents, All 3 topics mentioned above are connected with Independent Grenadier Company (SKG) - small company-size elite para-commando unit initially trained for special operations in France (Operation Bardsea). During the war unit was extended to Poles who earlier served in German Army (for projects Dunstable/SAARF). Another story is OSS led "School of Specialists" - commanded and mostly trained by ex-SKG officers and soldiers. The new book written by US author related to this formation was recently published in Poland: https://harriman.columbia.edu/news/john-michael-authors-book-joint-venture-between-us-and-poland-known-project-eagle https://universitas.com.pl/produkt/3924/ A few years ago first book about Project Eagle based on Polish archives in London was published: https://www.google.pl/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.picclickimg.com%2Fd%2Fl400%2Fpict%2F323816901635_%2FWW2-MATERIALY-No16-London-2011-Rare.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fpicclick.co.uk%2FCollectables%2FMilitaria%2FWorld-War-II-1939-1945%2FBooks%2F%3Fpage%3D5&docid=w4PeJaQibt_WWM&tbnid=9VIugapoGUhp8M%3A&vet=10ahUKEwj5jf7MiurkAhUkyaYKHYYPAvIQMwhFKAMwAw..i&w=284&h=400&bih=733&biw=1536&q=grabowski%20operacje%20dunstable%20eagle&ved=0ahUKEwj5jf7MiurkAhUkyaYKHYYPAvIQMwhFKAMwAw&iact=mrc&uact=8 And also my article about School of Specialist in this book: https://ipn.gov.pl/pl/publikacje/ksiazki/70693,Studia-z-dziejow-Polskich-Sil-Zbrojnych-na-Zachodzie-19391947.html Greetings Rafal

  6. Hello, Can anybody ID a paratrooper from this photo? I do not expect the name but formation. Is this typical para uniform? The photo comes from set of pics related to Polish Labour Service Coy in Germany. I rather do not expect that it is Polish guy. Any info will be welcomed. Greetings Rafal
