Hi, i have just joined, the reason being, i am looking for information on Polish service men who were at a resettlement camp 1945 /1948 in Honiton Devon uk. so i thought i might start here, as i don't know where else to begin. Thankyou for reading, regards Poppy
With the end of WW2 around 125.000 Polish Forces chose to stay in the UK. To accomodate so many The Polish Resettelement Corps was raised and the men were housed in vacated army and air force camps. There were over 200 such camps scattered throughout the UK. most were short lived and by 1948 were closed. The only Information I have about Honiton camp is that it was occupied by the Polish 6th Brigade Supply Company "6 Komp. Zaop. Bryg".
Family members can obtain individual's service records by contacting: Mrs Barbara Kroll or Margaret Goddard at; MOD, Polish Records Section, RAF Northolt, West End Rd., Ruislip, Middlesex HA4 6NG, UK. Telephone: 0044(0)208 833 8603. Email: email@example.com.
Information is provided free to wives but there is a charge for other family members. Hope this will help, Zosia
Sorry Zosia i didn't wait for your reply, i phoned the very helpful Barbara at Northolt It seems all i have to do is supply dads death certificate, mums death certificate, my birth certificate and a cheque for £30.00 and they will send my dads service record....
