The formative connection with the British Forces begun in the Middle East:
|25 Piastres, Rep. of Lebanon, 1942|
|Banknote issued in 1943 by the British|
Army for circulation in Tripolitania *
continuing through Italy,
|Allierte militarbehorder - 1 shilling, |
military issued, 1944 edition
|50 groschen (small denomination)|
also military series, 1944
|Nazi-issued banknote, 1937|
Something else has been found that sheds more interesting lite on the fate of the finds:an Army Form - A LOADING List.
The form is in English, but filled in Polish.
It is clearly listing supplies for a large number of people it is dated January 1946, which is before all Polish military personnel was disband from the British forces.

This amazing encounter with the History of the 2nd World War was attached to a small book, entitled "L'Inquiétude sexuelle" by Dr Pierre Vachet.
It is the title of a book where I found the notes.
I will post more about my inheriting a major book collection where this book was found.
I will also post more about the Polish Armoured Forces and their pet bear!
