This site is going to be closed (for contributions) at the end of November … so there’s not much time left ……
There is hardly any mention of the Polish II corps, or the deportations to Siberia …
This is the only article about Monte Cassino and the only mention of Poles is the quote below.
People in story: James H Hughes
Location of story: Monte Cassino, Italy
Unit name: 6th Bn Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers
“The Germans abandoned the Cassino positions now, and on the morning of 18th May the Poles were able to raise their flag on the ruins of the Monastery.”
Polish stories here:
I urge as many members as possible to send in contributions, they don’t have to be long or very detailed; a short summary is better than nothing. A short story is more likely to be read than a long one anyway.
