Hi Tom, I am not sure where you are based, but I live quite close to Husbands Bosworth. To my knowledge quite a few people were moved to Leicester when the H.B. camp was closed. You may wish to write a note to the Polish Parish Priest, and ask it to be included in the Parish Newsletter. His contact details:- Ks. KORDYS Tadeusz; dziekan dekanatu Œrodkowego w Anglii; 58 Bodnant Avenue, LEICESTER, LE5 5RA. UK. tel. +0044 (0)116 221 7006; Mob. +0044 07814 741 840. Should I bump into people that I know from H.B. I will try to get and send you their details. Good luck with your search. Tadeusz
