I myself Im sure it is done post war (second war). a memorial badge. As it looks so modern designated nothing crude made by a field smith. Poland have got lots of first rate designers after the second war.

What baffles me is the organziation pow was from first war, googling didnt show it for second war too.
Although I suppose some ex-members were active in second war too although in other organizations. it is perhaps what it is for, an extra badge for these veterans of veterans.

Why it is 1941-44 I dont know.

After the WW I POW became a part of Polish Army, that`s why googling don`t show WW II.
Why it says 1941-44 i don`t know neither.
