You should find a list of memorials to those who died.

This will lead you to various actions Anders forces took part in and show a time and place.

It is also a way to cross people off your list, if they have the same name.

The British MOD hold the records of the Polish Second Corps (Anders' Army) since it was under the command of the Eighth Army. Enquiries can be made for copies of individual's records for a fee. Enquire Polish Enqiries office: 0208 833 8603 or email: polishasstdisoff@northolt.raf.mod.uk

Hi,does anyone know if there is a list of soldiers who went into Anders army

If they enlisted from USSR then you could try:

The KARTA Center database search link below:

indeks.karta.org.pl/wyszukiwanie.asp

If you know which unit of Anders Army then try contacting the Sikorski Institute in London as they hold all of the Polish Army archives for military units and these often contain the names of serving soldiers within each regiment or unit. The Sikorski Inst. doesn't have email so its pen to paper. As the institute is staffed by voluteers (mainly Polish veterans) then it takes a while to get an answer.

Good luck with your research ;-))

My mother from Lida (Poland) was a Red Cross nurse in 1939 - captured & sent to Pocma Labour Camp on Vyatka River. Let go when Russia joined Allies. Found her way to join up with Polish Division of British Army at Tatishev near Stalingrad as a Nurse. Eventually in retreat, she travelled with patients via Jalalabad, Yangourie Polish HQ, Krasnovodsk in Turkmanistan. Ship to Paklevi (Persia). In Teheran by 1942 at huge refugee camp. Eventually from Khorramshaha they sailed via the Gulf of Oman (torpedoed by Japanese). In Karachi, then still India, by mid 1943 until end of war. She said she did not "de-mob". Married in India before going to Australia 1947. I have ID numbers for her in both Persia and India but have no idea how to find out her army connections. She worked in Red Cross, Polish, British & American hospitals while still attached to British Army. Any suggestions...? and would she also have been part of Anders Army?

Hi there

I know my father served with the Anders Army following liberation from a German forced labour camp in WW2. I know he fought in Monte Cassinno & ended his service in Alexandria Egypt at the end of the war.

Can anyone point me in the right direction of how I may be able to find out more about his service? Which regiment he would have served with? So far all searches online I've done myself have been fruitless. I have photos of him in his uniform, at monte Cassino & his one surviving brother is who told me it was Anders army he served with.

Thanks in advance

Sue

Dear Sue:

My grandfather served in Anders 2nd Corps and I was able to obtain his military records with full complete information on battles he was in, etc from the Ministry of Defence office in England. I live in California and telephoned the office first. The lady who answered looked up my grandfather's name and confirmed they had his records, but because of privacy laws in England, I had to prove I was his granddaughter before they would release the information to me. I provided copies of my birth certificate with my mother's name on it; mother's birth certificate which had grandfather's name on it and a 30 pound fee. Within about a month I received his full records which included names of his parents and other family information which was invaluable.

For Ministry of Defence Polish section records, contact Margaret Goddard or Barbara Kroll at:

If this office does not have the information you are looking for, check out this website that lists other offices that also have military records. polandinexile.com/addresses.html

Good luck!

Ahoy!

My father fought at Monte Cassino as part of Gen. Ander's army. He was wounded by a landmine when he went to render first aid to his Captain who also trod on a landmine. My father kept both of them alive for 3 days and they were then sent to Aberdeen, Scotland to recuperate. My father didn't lose his leg, but his Captain lost both of his. The Polish soldiers also learned that the Russians had occupied Poland and it was said that we don't have a country to return to so they wouldn't assault the monastery the next day, but one soldier said that "we were Polish when we left, and we're Polish now, so we will take our turn tomorrow".

I'll be happy to share my late fathers name if required should it be of use to you.

Does anyone know if there's a list of the names of the Ukrainians who joined the Polish army in the USSR in 1941 and came to the UK in 1942-1943?

@Pirate

As a Pole I salute your father and all of his colleagues for what they did at the Monte Cassino Battle. Poles were the only soldiers who kicked the Germans out of the monastery -- though there were many casualties.

This was indeed a great pre-war Polish generation. You won't find such Poles anywhere now...

Hi to all and thank you for all information. My great father was in Anders army at and in thw batle at Monte Casino we find few letters from ministry of defense hiden under flore. I will try to track his rout only what I know he was in England . Northolt RAF base is 10 minuts from my place is worth to try. If you had any photos of soldier from that time was be nice to see. He was born in Hancewicze .

My uncle was in Anders Army. He was killed at Monte Cassino. He threw himself on a hand grenade to save his comrades. He was awarded the Viturtia Militaria which his mother never received.

He was 17 years old.
We honour him
