Just a quick reminder to all UK members that tomorrow, Saturday 1 September, the Polish Ex-Combatants Association in GB (SPK) will be holding a special ceremony at the Polish Armed Forces Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire at 2.00 pm and everyone is invited to attend.
For more information about the Arboretum please see
There are still some places available on the coach which will be leaving the Polish Church on Moss Lane East, Manchester at 10.00 am. Cost is £11 per person. Please contact me privately if you would like to go by coach.
I hope you can attend to pay respect and gratitude in remembrance of all our families who fought and suffered for our freedom today.

He was captured by the Germans on 17th September 1939 and like 100,000 Polish troops escaped to rejoin the Polish Army in exile and fight in defence of Europe.
