Was this his first or last name?Chris CalgaryHi everyone,
My name is Tim , I live in Congleton in Cheshire in England just down
the road from Crewe's large Polish community.
I inherited my love of all things Polish from my Dad
When my Father joined the British army at the age of 16 in 1954 there
were, as you'd expect a lot of Poles, i have photos that i'm going to
scan/upload, in particular a Sgt Franciszek who drove a tank in Italy
in WW2, i'm not sure if he came from Kresy. he certainly made a big
impression on Dad.
