Stan Biernacik


As you may have read from our "veteran interviews" page, Stanley was a Polish officer cadet
just before the fateful September campaign of '39. After making his escape from the country
he quickly got to France where the Polish army was reforming. We will therefore begin
with his pictures from the artillery officer's school at Coetquidan.









After the fall of France the Poles made their way to the UK by any means possible. The next picture shows
Stan and friend shortly after arrival. As you can see some troops had not yet swapped out into British
battle dress uniforms.

As typical the Poles quickly went to work training on their new equipment.


As is typical in any army, there were numerous occasions for dress parades and military ceremonies.
