Subject: [www.Kresy-Siberia.org] funeral of Mr Jozef Krolczyk held today in Manchester, UK [1 Attachment]
UK member Frank Pleszak and I attended 99 year old veteran Mr Krolczyk's funeral and burial today. It was a very moving occasion and the church was packed out with mourners. He had a Polish flag draped over his coffin with his soldier's hat on top. The scouts and others carried about 10 standards/flags. I thought you might like to see the order of service attached below.
I sent an online message to the Manchester Evening News - http://notices.menmedia.co.uk/22591729#contribs_header and will give a small donation on behalf of everyone at Kresy-Siberia to the Polish Church Fund.
Take a look at Mr Krolczyk's remarkable story which Frank recorded a few months ago on the Kresy-Siberia Virtual Museum's new exhibition entitled People of the Polish 2nd Corps - http://kresy-siberia.org/people-of-the-polish-second-corps/all-people/krolczyk-jozef/?lang=pl
RIP Mr Krolczyk - Manchester Polish community will never be the same without you.
