you may be able to tell me anything at all about my late husband
30039165-Sergeant Officer cadet Michal Pukiello born in Wilno,
Poland, was a deportee to Siberia, camp unknown, joined the Polish
2nd Corps &fought at Monte Cassino.If you have any information at all
I would be very glad to hear from you. I have many times tried to
find something about him in the last few years without success.I
contacted the Ministry of Defence inMiddlesex, England and did
receive a few details of his army life, but no details prior to
that.We were married in Bolton Lancashire 1949, Michal died in 1981
aged 59 years without telling me anything about the dreadful journey
he made.Michal would only say he was taken by the Russians when he
was 17 years of age & was taken as a deportee and that was all. I am
now 83years of age and aquired a laptop which I am determined to
work at to put my mind more in focus.Please excuse mistakes as I have
never used a computer before.I hope you can be of help to me.By the
way I am British & we did have a great marriage, with a Son ,
daughter, & grandchildren. all for now, yours Cynthia Pukiello.
