I have a copy of this: 32 pages, various articles and photos. I
haven't had time to scan it yet but seeing as it's all in Polish I
don't know if many people will read it anyway.

> Dear Group,
> I know that there are among us still some "old soldiers" and also
many descendants of soldiers who fought so bravely under the command
of General Anders so I wish to share with you something that is
unfortunately a late discovery for me and might perhaps be for many
of you as I did not come across any mention of in recent discussions.
> Better late than never I suppose, but I just today became aware
that in March of this year, 2007 was designated as the Year of
General Anders by the Polish Senate (Rok Generala Andersa) with many
events planned throughout the year in Poland and in London. On the
13th of October a solemn Memorial Mass was held in Westminster
Cathedral officiated by the chief Army Bishop of Poland. More
information can be had at:
> An ability to read Polish helps the pdf documents attached to the
site but if you navigate down the left hand side menu you will also
find a file on the cemetery at Monte Cassino which has some very
evocative pictures of the rebuilt monastery, the grave of Anders
himself , buried among his soldiers etc...
> There is further much informative reading if you google in "Rok
Generala Andersa" again mostly for readers of Polish I'm afraid.
> I hope this will be of interest to some of you ~ a sort of
belated virtual participation in this historic event. Someone who
knows his widow wrote to say that she is particularly gratified by
this acknowledgment, in the country of his birth where for so many
years under the communist regime he had been treated as a traitor, of
his courage not only as a leader and a soldier but also as someone
especially instrumental, through his negotiating and setting up of
the Polish Army in the USSR, in facilitating the release of the
families who had been forcibly deported to Siberia.
