Is there a list of those in the Polish Army during WWII?

I am trying to find information on my grand uncle Roman Sikora. He was born in Poland. He served in the Polish Army during WWII. I know that he was an Officer/Captain. He served in Poland, England and France. I was told by my father that he was killed in Normandy in 1944/1945. He also said that he was in an Army tank.

Anybody have a relative stationed in Kessingland, Suffolk who was involved with mine clearance in the years after 1945?

My dad Aleksander Wojtiuk (from Rowne/Rovne) was there after serving at Tobruk and Monte Cassino with 3rd Carpathian Rifle Division

Ministry of defence gave me a lot of information and lists. My father was Jozef Michel Rzemieniecki and he was in the 2nd Polish Army, 3rd Carpatian Riffle Brigade. After the war he went to Holland were he met my mother. I wrote a book about his live during the war. There was even a investigation form from the russians in 1939 which he signed laying in the Hoover Institute in America. So search the internet and you will find a lot of information. By the way nu father was from Sosnow near Lwow, now Ukraine.

Hi I am trying to trace my farther. Francis Joseph Nicklewinski. I know that he was born in Poland (possibly) in Tymowa, in 1921. He was in the military (possible a submariner) and was stationed in Scotland (possibly at Thurso) during WW2. He married in 1950, at which time his surname changed to Nickel, and immigrated to Australia in 1951. I found 2 versions of his marriage certificate, one in the name of Nicklewinski and another with the name of Nickel. I also found an index to his application for naturalization in the National Archives but the document is "Closed for 100 years" the reason given as "Contains sensitive personal information which would substantially distress or endanger a living person or his or her descendants". Francis never talked about his past and we have no other information about his family or his time in Scotland. I would love to hear from anybody who can help further my discovery.

@Poltrace
Talked to a local Militaria dealer a while ago and he had sold some photographs and info on submarines to a polish collector of militaria. Apparently there were only 2 subs of the polish navy used in the war.Polish collector will be here in October at local militaria show, will pass on your info.
