Badge of Polish 1st Grenadier Div in France and dog tag from Oflag.XVII.A

Recommended Posts

Gentlemen,

These two artifacts came to me together but that doesn't mean belong this way.  I'd like your comments on authenticity.  The IWM site has identified the badge as being worn by the Polish First Grenadier Division in the Polish Army in France.  What confuses me is that the badge was made by Kirwood and Son in Ediburgh.

The second artifact is marked to Oflag.XVII.A and numbered 16078.  I'd like to know if there is any way of matching the number to the name of the holder of this dog tag.

Regards,

Gordon

It's hard to associate both items without any story behind.

The badges of 1st Grenadiers Division were issued and produced in UK and Italy (Lorioli) after French Campaigne.
