/ Do Poles really blame Britain for Poland becoming Communist after the war?
Around 50% stayed, 50% returned.
Can I ask for a source for that? As far as I know, of the 249,000 Poles in the western command forces: 114,000 joined the Polish Resettlement Corps and stayed in the UK; 86,000 returned to Poland from United Kingdom, 12,000 returned to Poland from Italy, 5,000 returned to Poland from Germany, 2,000 returned to Poland from the Middle East (total number who returned to Poland was 105,000); 8,000 disbanded without joining the PRC (includes 2,300 who settled in Italy and 1,200 in Holland); 1,000 "Recalcitrants" ineligible for PRC; 14,000 emigrated to other countries (including what had become the USSR); and 7,000 settled in France.
To the 114,000 PRC members we can add: 31,800 dependants of PRC members brought to the UK by the War Office, 2,400 "Distressed Relatives" brought to the UK (Poles married to UK Citizens), and 29,400 Polish "European Volunteer Workers"
