Materialy - By Jan Lors - The badge numbers of all members of the  1st Independent Polish Parachute Brigade

The badge awarded to all who passed with the 1st Independent Polish Parachute Brigade was serial numbered on the back.

All of the badge numbers along with the person the badge was awarded to are listed in a book called "Materialy - Dokumenty Zrodla Archiwalia" By Jan Lorys.

Unfortunately, this book is EXTREMELY hard to get hold of and typically costs £130. I am fortunate to own a copy of this book. I'm happy to lookup your relative in exchange for a donation (minimum £10). This money goes towards the running costs of this site (Such as buying a £130 book!).

What Detail Is Available?

The detail contained in a listing in the book is:

  • Name
  • Rank
  • Badge Number
  • Detail of whether in "Operation Market Garden"
