Poles in the British Army

Union Jack

War Hero
We have a high regard for the Poles. You lunatics charged Panzers, on horseback, gave us Enigma and 303 Squadron RAF, mostly Polish, fought very, very well.
Royal Navy rather than Army, but Rear Admiral Jozef Barosik CB DSC was a very notable - and often very controversial! - transferee from the wartime Polish Navy. Worth a shoogle with Google.....

Poles always welcome in the RAF if the Army doesn't work out.

..unless your first name is Telegraph

Carried quite enough of those on Initial Officer Training, thanks ;)

I don't think Poles can join until they have a British passport, at which point they are British, not Poles.
No different from Pakistani, Indian, African British then….my point is we actively (politically) recruit one group, but not the other(s)

They have different coloured skin, they aren't recruited on their previous nationality.
If there were any black or brown Poles who then got a British passport they would have the same type BAME recruitment encouragement as any other british black or brown person.
