Polish 2nd Corps

Boleslaw was born in Augustow in 1915 and participated in the September Campaign and was arrested by the Russians in Latvia in September 1939.  He was interned at Smolensk and was subsequently sent to a number of camps in Siberia.  When 'amnesty' was declared, he enlisted in the Polish 2nd Corps at Tatiszczewo in September 1941.  He evacuated to the Middle East with the 2nd Corps, and later participated in the Italian Campaign.
