Hi am trying to trace my late father military records. Jan Czarnecki.
Taken by German army to force labour camp in Tyrol, Austria.??
He escaped, and after several days running from German soldiers he was captured by America soldiers.
He then joined Gen: Anders army. When I'm not sure, but think it was after Monte Cassio.
His shoulder badge looks like a buffalo, 5th Kresowa Infantry Division??
He says he operated as wireless translations and heavy machine gun (bren ?)
Came England 1946/7? And was demob near Reading.
That's all his military background I know. He would not talk about it.
In 2008 he passed away. Now I would like to retrace his steps, particularly which Labour camp in Austria.
Where do I start?
