Polish Militia - the growth of unofficial militia groups in Poland.

26 Jul 2018 /  #1
Hello, I have been reading about the growth of unofficial militia groups in Poland.

Would anyone know of any within a 25 min drive of Milanówek ?

I am only beginner level of Polish at the moment but I have some relevant experience that would definitely make up for that.

What do you mean by "unofficial"? Every militia group which is unofficial is illegal.

Unofficial as in autonomous and not under command of the Army.

This kind of thing ->

Then it is not "unofficial", it is just not under the command of the Army.

Reuters refer to them as unofficial
"The Polish government has kept its distance from the unofficial civilian militias"

Anyway, this militia is from the Reuters report but a bit too far

Also found this which I am busy translating
"The Mazowiecka Territorial Defense training project is an initiative aimed at integrating pro-defense communities from the Mazowsze area"

So in their speak, I am looking for a pro-defense community

Not sure about the Dads army stuff but your village might have a volunteer fire brigade that has a bit of training once a week and some pretty good booze ups. One of my relatives was doing that and actually had to deal with quite a few fires over the years
