Hi am trying to decipher my Grandads military history, like a lot of the men of his generation he never said a word about it.

I have his military info from the Mod, other than trying to work out the hand written text; the sticking point at the moment are the abbreviations.

He is shown to be in something that is either 28.P.S.K or J.S.K in Lodz in 1934-36. does anyone know of a list of unit abbreviations?

28.P.S.K in Lodz in 1934-36

Wow! A rather famous unit! 28 Pułk Strzelców Kaniowskich (28th Kaniowski Rifle Regiment).

They were formed in Volyn in 1919 and fought against Ukrainians, against Czechs in Cieszyn Silesia and then, of course, against Soviets in the Battle of Warsaw. In the interwar period it was stationed in Łódź as a part of 10th Infantry Division.

There is even a historical reconstruction group for the unit. Here's their Facebook page...

... there's a lot of photos, maps and other information. Try to contact them for further details of anything related to 28. PSK.
