Polish uniform insignia/patches ID help


Recommended Posts

Hello there

Noob here and first post so be gentle.

Can anyone help to id the three badges on the arms, not very good quality pic (old, LOL) and the scan was a high resolution drum scan. The pic is of my father (right) and two of his brothers in Polish uniform.

There's a long story, but the short of it is, I don't know the year and could have been taken in Scotland, Port Bella (repatriation) after the war hence the Poland instead of Polska and I've only just noticed they all have different insignia/badges on their arms plus the cord around my fathers shoulder. The middle one looks like a boar, think I've seen similar elsewhere, the left looks like a circle/medal with wavy ribbon and my fathers? No idea at all.

Alas all are deceased and nobody else seems to know in the family, hence the post.

Found out a bit more info from digging around, my father was naturalised in Kirkcaldy, Scotland not Port Bella. Bella was an auntie on my mothers side who lived in Scotland were they (my mother and father) went to visit.

Hi Stanislaw

Thank you for the information, done some more research and will be contacting the MOD in Northolt once I have my fathers DC.
