Question was too difficult. 17 years old girl Simone Brugge got polish Krzyż Walecznych (I think it can be translated as "Cross of Valour") for guiding polish troops during fight in town Roulers.
Next question:Who sunk polish submarine "Jastrząb"?

ORP "Jastrząb" was sunk by Norway Navy destroyer HNoMS "St Albans" and British minesweeper HMS "Seagull". It happened on 2th May 1942.

Yes. "Jastrząb" was sunk by friendly fire. Commander was heavy wounded, 5 men of crew were killed. Your turn, Pst59.

Next question is connected to the underground army AK , not to the navy.
What is "Blyskawica" . It was manufactured in occupied Poland mostly in Warsaw in 1943 and 1944.

The next question is completely different. It isn't connected to the weapon or other device but to the cavalry soldiers free time live.
The question is - what is "żurawiejka" ?
