More Info →Polish Army league with gift parcels for Polish soldiers

The Polish Army League was formed in Palmerston North in December 1941, to 'extend a hand of friendship' to Polish soldiers fighting for the allied forces. Assisted by a large number of organisations, the League sent parcels with notes, and items such as knitting, to Polish soldiers overseas during World War II. Members from the Executive Committee are, from left: Mrs A Stewart; Mrs L E Bale (President); Mrs T K Fraser (Treasurer); Mrs W A Jacques (organising secretary)
