Unit Purpose:

The purpose of this unit is to portray the fighting men of the Polish Armed Forces during World War II. To honor 12th Podolian Regiment of the Polish 2nd Corp of the 8th British Army, our authenticity in uniforms and equipment standards will be of the highest standard both in the field and in the barracks.These standards are not meant to deter prospective members, but to outline the expectations that we have of our membership. Only by creating and maintaining such high standards in uniform, equipment, and attitude can we respectfully represent Polish veterans.

The unit is attached to the World War II Polish Army Historical Association, a tax-exempt, non-for-profit, non-political organization intended for those who wish to study and attempt to experience life in the Polish Armed Forces during

World War II. Our impressions are those of the combat soldier only. (Association bylaws)
