My father Stanislaw Jaczynski aka Stan Jackson (1916 - 2000) served in the Polish Navy from 1934 to 1946. He served as a signaller on the ORP Garland from June 1940 to 1945. He migrated to Australia in 1951. I am currently researching his WWII naval service history based on his personal collection of about 300 photos and am happy to share information.
My grandfather Aleksander Zawada also served on the Garland during WW2. He didnt speak of his experiences much but has some left photographs when he passed away. I would be only too glad to mail photographs to relatives of those who served on the Garland. email@example.com
My father was petty officer Peter Walendzewicz. on board ORP Garland. We left Scotland in 1953 to live in Canada. I am still living here. I have some pictures of part of the crew, would be delighted to share them. He also had 2 friends here, George Senderatski and Stanley Suwari. Email adress is Irenka.Hunter@hotmail.com
My Dad, Ronald Neades, was a signal er on ORP Garland from 1942 to 1945. His memory is going a bit now and he always talks of his days in the navy. If anyone has any information about the Garland I would appreciate it.

My Dad Joe(born Jozef Zarzabek, Zakopane, Poland) served on ORP Garland 1940-3 as a petty officer, radar operator. Anyone whose dad, uncle etc.,was a member of Garland's crew during this period is most welcome to contact me to swap information.
