    Hussars' Wings - the most distinctive feature of the Polish Hussars were the pair of huge wings attached to their backs, each constructed of high wooden frames upon which eagle feathers were attached. It is believed that the Polish Hussars wore these wings for the purposes intimidating the enemy. Legend has it that the mere sight of these huge wings and the rustling sound they apparently made as the steeds charged in battle, were enough to unnerve infantrymen and horses.

    Polish Easter Eggs

    Krystyna Skarbek (1915 – 1952) was a Polish Special Operations Executive (SOE) agent who became a legend in her own time for her daring exploits in intelligence and sabotage missions to Nazi-occupied Poland and France. She was a British agent just months before the SOE was founded in July 1940 and had been the longest serving of all British women agents during World War II. Because of her influence the SOE began to recruit increasing numbers of women agents into the organization.
