A little bit of propaganda

Postby Eirikr on Tue Mar 31, 2009 5:41 pm



I know some of you portray more than one historical period (like myself), so why not do something exotic and join the Polish WW2 Paras! No need to be Polish (in the actual brigade there were Americans and even Germans). We can share whatever literature and knowledge we have. We will advise on uniforms, insignia and weapons. We'll help in reasearch and shopping, so join the best and keep the memory of those brave soldiers from Arnhem alive.

We're portraying members of 2nd Company, 1st Batalion of Polish 1st Independent Parachute Company. They took part in operation Market Garden - landed on south bank of Rhine in Driel and some with American 82nd further south around Grave. (Whoever have seen "A Bridge too Far" - knows what I'm takling about).

There are already groups portraying 1st Polish Para Brigade all around the world - Poland, UK, USA and even Australia.

Few period photos of the Polish Paras Below.


Should you be interested in joining - best to contact myself either by PM, or by mail erolek@o2.pl
