The 1st Independent Polish Parachute Brigade

(1 Samodzielna Brygada Spadochronowa)

A Working Tower In
Katowice, Poland

Below is a video of a live working tower in Katowice, Poland. It is very similar to the one at Lundin Links as used by the 1st Independent Polish Parachute Brigade.

The video helps you understand what the parachutists went through as part of their training.

The Katowice Parachute Tower

The last remaining parachute tower in Poland is in Katowice. Built in 1937 it is 50 meters tall and was used by the 73rd Infantry Regiment as an observation tower.

It's design and size is very similar to the parachute tower associated with Largo House in Upper Largo, Fife. The parachute tower in Fife though was actually located 2 miles away from Largo House and at Lundie Tower in a place called "Lundin Links".

Another fantastic video of the Katowice Parachute Tower.
