The Polish commandos served in 6 Troop of No.10 (Inter Allied) Commando.
As well as the book mentioned above there is, 'Commando In Exile' by Nick van der Bijl. Published by Pen & Sword.

This Polish commando was at the 10 Commando tree at the National Memorial Arboretum, 03 May 2006. Pictured with my grandmother and his friend. Regretfully I don't know the name of the Polish commando.

Hi Ander
Thank you for this photo which I will add to the gallery in due course. I have also seen the comment in the gallery about having a photo of a grave. If you wish you can email this to me on the email link below.
