You can see the patch  collars, the regimental breast badge, the black lanyad the titles POLAND ad the arm divisional babge. The black left shoulder is black, that's the case for a large part of the BD of the Division, specially from the 10th Armored Brigade.



Here is the best battledress of Mister Wytrychowski, medical in the 10th Polish Dragoons. The arm badge is the armory of Lanarkshire, where the regiment was during the WW2. The cllar is opened. Many details are made by taylors for the Polish troop.

Another named battledress. Mister Zielinski's BD, from the sanitary companies of the 1rst Polish Armored Division. He was member of the Polish undergroud in North of France during the War, and joined the Division when these soldiers liberated this part of the country, where lived a lot of Polish people. You can see the black left shoulder, the patch collars (amaranth with blue line), the rank on the shoulders, the titles POLAND printed, the divisionnal arm badge, and the medals rubans, the iron buttons with polish eagle. The collar is opened.
