Good to know that some people want to remember.

It would be a good idea if these places where some how noted down for the history books. A lot of them are in a state of disrepair though hold significant stories about the struggles the 2 peoples fought against.

s. A lot of them are in a state of disrepair though hold significant stories about the struggles the 2 peoples fought against.

Whatever you do don't let the Poles restore it - the army will raze it to the ground for being an illegal erection.

The Polish soldiers who came to Scotland during WW2 to carry on the fight against the Nazis were particularly noted for their great courage and the deeds they performed on the battlefield. I went to school with a number of friends who had Polish surnames, this was long before the influx of immigration post EU border relaxation, I can only assume their grandparents stayed here after the war.

We owe a great debt to these men and women, both Polish and Scottish and they should always be remembered.

well I said it was in London, you said it was NOrtholt , as though you were correcting me.
I do apologise if I mis-read you. BTW I can more or less guarantee I know London better than you do. (as I come from there)
