I'm looking for all information about a camp in Long Marston. My Grandfather, Stanisław Wiatr, lived there till 1965 when he died (his grave is in Blockley). My Grandmother, Kunegunda Wiatr, lived and worked there as well but only few years since 1963. In 1965 I spend some times in the camp as a five years old child. Now I live and work in Gdańsk, Poland. Thank you in advance for your help.
Sorry for my previous post. I had to push on wrong keys. To continue: I know that people who lived in Long Marston camp are not so young ones but I hoped that someone would answer me. I remember that when I was a boy visiting the camp my Grandmother had a lot of friends but probably they died all of them now as my Grandma. It's a pity !
Dzień dobry. Ciekawa wiadomość i zbieg okoliczności gdyż mój pradziadek Alfred Bysiewicz żył także w tym "campie". Zmarł w 1959 roku. Polakami zajmował sie tam ks. Franciszek Winczowski. Grób mojego pradziadka znajduje sie w Blockley. Pozdrawiam i czekam na odpowiedź.
Nareszcie jakiś kontakt ! Długo nie odpowiadałem, bo straciłem już nadzieję i po prostu nie wchodziłem na tę stronę. Dzisiaj jednak coś mnie tknęło;być może pod wpływem zdjęć, które wcześniej przeglądałem. Czy ma Pani jakieś pamiątki, zdjęcia, relacje z "tamtych" czasów ? Czy odwiedzała już Pani grób pradziadka ? To tak na początek. Na wszelki wypadek podaję mojego maila: email@example.com Pozdrawiam gorąco.
Niestety nie posiadam żadnych zdjęć z tamtego obozu (Long Marston). sama takich szukam, ponieważ posiadam tylko jedno zdjęcie mojego pradziadka i chciała bym uzyskać jakiekolwiek inne na którym może ewentualnie być. Może posiada Pan jakieś zdjęcia z tamtego miejsca. W razie potrzeby zostawiam maila: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Krysztof I have just seen this while looking myself for information about Long Marston. I remember it but not too well as I was a child then myself. However I remember Father Winczowski (he baptised me though I don't remember that particular event!) Our family was good friends with Major Poliszewski who I think had some responsibility in Long Marston. We didn't live there but we knew people who did and many of the children from there went to St Gregory's School in Stratford on Avon, so you may find some clues there. Good luck with this. It's a pity there's so little available about Long Marston when there's so much about many of the other settlements. Best wishes Nicoletta
Hi Jan, I hope that you still visit this Website. I did after a long time.I have just read about the Blockley cemetery and destroyed many graves there around two years ago. I hope that a grave of my Grandfather ( Stanisłąw Wiatr ) is still there. Have you been there last time ? Hard times we have now but it's great that there are still some people who remember about these ones who had gone. It would be nice if we could contact each other. Please find my E-mail address: email@example.com .
Hi Krzysztof. My dad was in a camp after the war. I'm not sure which one. I have only come across this site today and so will have to do some research. My dad was Henryk Horecki although his original name in Poland was Henryk Hain he lived in Tarnowskie Góry in the south. He married my mum Gertruda Trocka in England but she lived in Gdańsk and my auntie Monica Sauter lived at Saperów 13 in Olivia. It was a fabulous house which has now become a clinic.
Hi Gabby, Thanks for the info. I wrote a name of your Dad into Google and found an article in the London Gazette of 1960 about naturalisation. Please see this page : www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/41917/page/97/data.pdf. There you will find a name of your Dad. Do you have any photos or other documents from those years ? If I could help you in any matter, please let me know.
