Uniform of a Polish officer, veteran of the 2nd Polish Corps. The set consists of a beret and a jacket. The only element from the war period is the Polish Eagle, wz.39 on the beret, made in Palestine circa 1940-45.
Single-breasted jacket fastened with 4 buttons with the Polish crowned eagle. Two pockets on the chest and below the waist. Top pockets with buttons.
On the collar there are visible two officers collar patches made of navy blue felt, finished with yellow piping- the colors of infantry. Shoulder straps in the rank of the second lieutenant finished with buttons. Above the pocket, a ribbon in non-regulatory colors, possibly a replacement for the Monte Cassino Cross Ribbon.
Inside the uniform, there is a label with the date 1968. Round black beret, inside the manufacturer’s mark and the date 1953. On the forehead of the beret there are two stars and a Polish eagle with a crown.
The buttons and stars were probably made by Mieczysław Białkiewicz in London in 1960-70.
