Finally, the post war years. These could be Soviet era uniforms.
The above 2 photos are likely of the same person, named Lesek Patrzykat (from the handwritten notes on the back). The style of uniform confused me. I first thought they were US or British style, but was corrected by someone who had older photos of a similar style (from her Grandfather). The first photo has a "edge cut style" where the photo was trimmed like many older Polish photos. So they could be Soviet style, which the date of the second photo suggests. Any thoughts or ideas are appreciated.
The last photo, dated 1954, looks more like what I thought Soviet uniforms looked like. The emblem appears to be the traditional Poland Insignia, though we can't see any badges due to the style of photo.
I have a lot of translating to do...
Sadly, this is it for the 'military' type photos. There are many (many...many) photos of family members in Poland and France which will require other sources and details. Thankfully, I live near Chicago, home of the Polish Genealogical Society of America.
I've got another 2 photos but they are most likely NOT from Poland. The first is of a Master Sergeant from the 8th Army Air Corps and another of a Sailor (no markings, no notes). So, without going off topic, if you want to see them for your collection let me know and i'll send email somewhere.
