Section 19 - Przebieg Sluzby Wojskowej

 Przebieg Sluzby Wojskowej means military service record. This section is a quick overview of the countries the Polish soldier served in.

A frequent phrase is used in Polish military records "Przeniesiony Pod Każdym Względem do " it translates as "In every way" is a specific term used in the military. It means that in all respects (food, finances, orders, discipline, command etc) the soldier would be subject to the newly named military unit.

W Polsce od 31.VIII.39 do 13.IX.39 w 42 p.p

  • English - In Poland from 31/08/1939 to 13/09/1939 in 42 Pulk Piechoty

 

  • Note: 42 p.p were in Zambrow as POW's between 10/09/1939 - 13/09/1939, presumably he was with them. Notice that the military record (left) states he was with 42 p.p until 13/09/1939. If he escaped one idea might be that on escaping he joined another unit, so his time with 42 p.p came to an end. (ARE THERE ANY GERMAN POW photos of 42 p.p from this time period?) see: http://knyszyn.pl/asp/pl_start.asp?typ=13&sub=6&menu=75&dzialy=75&schemat=2&akcja=artykul&artykul=717

42 p.p were stationed at The Bialystok Garrison
Search for more info on 42.pp also google for photos of 42 p.p and see this one http://www.ciekawepodlasie.pl/image/5925/Koszary__im_Traugutta_42_Pulku_Piechoty_1922_1939.jpg

W ZSRR dnia 2.III.42 wcielony do p.p

  • ZSRR = Związek Socjalistycznych Republik Radzieckich - Union of Soviet Socialist Republics

W.W. Brytanii dnia 17.VIII.42 wcielony do belrozda

  • English - In Great Britain the day of 17.VIII.42 conscripted/enlisted into Obóz Rozdzielcy (Distribution Camp) - No order, just recorded, refers to order below. (This was a unit of the Polskie Siły Zbrojne na Zachodzie)

The next section deals with the military records in Poland;

1930

  • Polish - W 1930 zaprzysiężony (sworn in) 42 p.p.
  • English - In 1930 sworn in to 42  Pulk Piechoty.

31 May 1939 To 13 September 1939

  • Polish - W Polsce od 31.VIII.39 do 13.IX.39 w 42 p.p
  • English - In Poland from 31/08/1939 to 13/09/1939 in 42 Pulk Piechoty.

Detail

42 p.p were in Zambrow as POW's between 10/09/1939 - 13/09/1939, presumably he was with them. Notice that the military record (left) states he was with 42 p.p until 13/09/1939.

There are 2 possibilities here, either:

  • 42 Pulk Piechoty was effectively liquidated when the Russians captured and took prisoner 240,000 Polish soldiers (which would include Wladyslaw)
  • Wladyslaw escaped and joined another unit (unrecorded and unlikely).

If he escaped one idea might be that on escaping he joined another unit, so his time with 42 p.p came to an end. (ARE THERE ANY GERMAN POW photos of 42 p.p from this time period?) see: http://knyszyn.pl/asp/pl_start.asp?typ=13&sub=6&menu=75&dzialy=75&schemat=2&akcja=artykul&artykul=717

42 p.p were stationed at The Bialystok Garrison

14/9/39 - 1/3/42 - Gulag Etc

This section deals with enlisting to Anders Army through to the Middle East;

2 March 1942 (28 P.P)

  • Polish - W ZSRR (Związek Socjalistycznych Republik Radzieckich) dnia 2.III.42 wcielony do 28 p.p
  • English - In USSR on 2nd March 1942 merged/incorporated/enlisted/conscripted to 28 Pulk Piechoty (28th Infantry Regiment).
  • Details - 28 Pulk Piechoty or 28th infantry Regiment (part of the 10th Division) was formed at Lugovaya by General Anders (Anders Army). Interestingly there was parachute training that went on there in -43C and using a tower as well! 

3rd April 1942 - 7th May 1942 (Evacuation From USSR)

  • Polish - Uwagi: Od 3.IV.42 to 7.V.42 transport z Z.S.R.R. do Ośrodku Zapasowego w Polskich Sił Wojskowych.

 

  • English - 03/04/1942 to 07/05/1942 transport from the U.S.S.R. to Polish Armed Forces Base Depot (in Egypt or Palestine) 

 

  • Details - This is most likely the journey from Lugovaya in Kazakhstan to Krasnovodsk in the Soviet Union and then across the Caspian Sea to Pahlevi. In Pahlevi was the "base camp". However those arriving in Pahlevi were quickly assigned to other camps in the Middle East so this line lacks clarity.

This section deals with arrival in the UK (Auchtertool Distribution Camp) through to his time with the 1st Polish Independent Parachute Brigade;

17 August 1942 (Auchtertool)

Polish - 17.VIII.42 Przybył i przydzielony służbowo i gospodarczo do Obozu Rozdzielczego, ewidencyjnie do Komendy Uzupełnień Numer 1 (Rozkazy Sztabu N.aczelny W.ódz O.działu?) I. L. 1805 /O.I.A.R. 42

English - 04/03/1943 transferred in every respect to the Special Company Parachute Brigade

Details

It looks like this is a paperwork entry rather than a real transfer, especially as no unit by the name of "Special Company Parachute Brigade" appears ot exist. Or is this the independant Grenadier company? https://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl=en&sl=pl&u=https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samodzielna_Kompania_Grenadier%25C3%25B3w&prev=search

  • Polish - Uwagi: Od 3.IV.42 to 7.V.42 transport z Z.S.R.R. do Ośrodku Zapasowego w Polskich Sił Wojskowych.
  • Engllsh - 03/04/1942 to 07/05/1942 transport from the U.S.S.R. to Polish Armed Forces Base Depot (in Egypt or Palestine) (Reserves Centre?) (The P.S.W is…)

Note - See rymasjewski blog for where headquaters were which is what I think the psw is.

It's highly likely that this Ośrodek Zapasowy was in Iraq. When you see this in a reference "Szw. R.R." it means "Szwadron Regulacji Ruchu". Their order books are different to the unit he is in.
