    Thank you… My father was soldier of gen. Sosabowski.
    I was in Elie (Leven and Largo) some years ago, with Alistair Suttie…

    I can remember living in Earlsferry when the Polish were training as Paratroopers, there was an aircraft fuselarge on what was then the Ladies Course. My mother an I were living with my grandparents after we were bombed out living in Croyden.
    I mostly remember living in Georgeville next to the Garage by the fourth tee, the night that the Polish occupants billeted in The Marne set fire to it, I was looking out of the fanlight window in the roof across the Golf Course, this must have been shortly before they went to Arnhem.

    I am under the impression there is a memorial plaque for the Polish paratroopers somewhere in Elie or Earlsferry
