The Lost Parachute Tower
The parachute tower of the 1st Independent Polish Parachute Brigade (1 Samodzielna Brygada Spadochronowa) who were based at Largo House, Upper Largo, Fife, is shrouded in mystery and lore. As members of the brigade died off, the location of the tower got lost and forgotten (and even "re-located" to a place it had never existed).
75 years later I found the location and base of the tower after 3 days hard searching.
Location Of The Parachute Tower
It is widely reported (mainly on the internet) that the parachute training tower for The 1st Independent Polish Parachute Brigade (1 Samodzielna Brygada Spadochronowa) was at Largo House in Upper Largo, Fife, Scotland. This is simply not true!
I spent more hours than I would admit trying to locate where the tower used to be located. I'm going to tell you the towers location now, but please read the detail further below before you visit it.
No Longer Secret - The Towers Actual Location!
The parachute tower that The 1st Independent Polish Parachute Brigade (1 Samodzielna Brygada Spadochronowa) trained at was located beside Lundie Tower, Pilmuir Road, Lundin Links, Fife. this is roughly 2 miles away from Largo House, Fife. I would love to know why it was sited there, any clues?
Due to the location of the tower base, it's possible that you may be trespassing on a farmers field in order to see the tower base. I will leave the matter with you, but be warned, the residents at the nearby house may not take to kindly to you being there..
