There are 7 Polish Military Personnel listed on the CWGC list, but I have decided to include them on the Corstorphine Hill Cemetery (Polish Graves) thread.
The 7 names are:
Cichy, W Captain
Karozewski, J Captain
Kawalski, A Major
Krewski, S Corporal
Mrozowski, W Lt. Colonel all of the Polish Resettlement Corps and
Steinmazzel, Z L T Lieutenant Royal Artillery (Ex- Polish Army)

None of the Polish Army Personnel (apart from those mentioned above) are listed on the CWGC site, although they have CWGC graves, which are maintained by the CWGC.


Polish graves in Section B.

The Territorial Efficiency Medal is a medal of the United Kingdom awarded for long service in the Territorial Army. The criteria were for a minimum of 12 years service in the Territorial Army with war service counting double. Bars for further periods of 12 years were not awarded because they were not possible, given that this medal was superseded after 9 years by the Efficiency Medal. The medal is referred to as the TEM.

Initials: D S
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Lieutenant
Regiment/Service: Royal Scots
Unit Text: 6th Bn

Additional information: Son of David and Annie McGregor, of "Ferragon" Craigs Rd., Corstorphine, Edinburgh.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: A. 1.
Cemetery: STASEGEM COMMUNAL CEMETERY

Citation: An extract from "The London Gazette," dated 13th December, 1918, records the following:-"For most conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty near Hoogmolen on 22nd of October, 1918, when in command of a section of machine guns attached to the right flank platoon of the assaulting battalion. Immediately the troops advanced they were subjected to intense enfilade machine-gun fire from Hill 66 on the right flank. Lt. McGregor fearlessly went forward and located the enemy guns, and realised that it was impossible to get his guns carried forward either by pack or by hand without great delay, as the ground was absolutely bare and fire swept. Ordering his men to follow by a more covered route, he mounted the limber and galloped forward under intense fire for about 600 yards to cover. The driver, horses and limber were all hit, but Lt. McGregor succeeded in getting the guns into action, effectively engaging the enemy, subduing their fire, and enabling the advance to be resumed. With the utmost gallantry he continued to expose himself in order to direct and control the fire of his guns, until, about an hour later, he was killed. His great gallantry and supreme devotion to duty were the admiration of all ranks."
