Polish Combatant's Association
The Polish Combatants Association ( SPK is the Polish acronym), is an international association of Polish ex-servicemen and women, formed in Italy after the end of the Second World War when Poland fell under Communist control. Poland suffered greatly during the war after the German invasion, and then endured further indignity after the Communist occupation in 1945.
Polish soldiers fought bravely alongside the Allies during the entire war and were held in high esteem. The Association is a member of the National Council of the Veterans' Associations of Canada and participates in all national and veteran ceremonies in Ottawa.
