      Hello Everyone,

      My name is Edward (Edzio ) Kosy and I am new to this group. I wonder if any of you out there can help me find out more about my father. His name was Boleslaw Kosy and he was born in Falcowicze, Lida in 1918. I know that he was transported to a Siberian camp sometime during WW2 but I don’t know when, or which one it was.  He was released from there to join Anders Army (again I don’t know what date) and I understand he was so malnourished that initially he was passed over for release as it was thought he was too weak to make the journey. He persisted with his request to join Anders Army and a Canadian soldier took pity on him and got him on board a ship. He joined the 9th  Transport Co. 2nd Warsaw Division as a truck driver and served in Iraq (or possibly Iran), Palestine and Monte Cassino in Italy. He married my mother , Janina, in Barletta, Italy on 9th June 1946 and in late 1946 came to the UK (initially in Scotland, but I don’t know where). My mother and I joined him in Jan or Feb 1947 and they initially went to Ludford Magna resettlement camp and shortly after went to Doddington Camp in Cheshire where we stayed for about 12 years. He  died, aged just 58, in 1976.  Well, that is all the information I have on my father’s life and it doesn’t seem to be very much but if anyone out there is able to give me any more information about him I will be very grateful.
