Family stones



Stanislaw Mazur was a Lieutentant in the Free Polish Army and served with the Special Operations Executive (SOE), which must have been a tough gig, to say the least.

Married into the Greenhill-Gardyne family whose military lineage goes back to William the Conqueror and includes those who commanded units in both Jacobite risings and in every conflict up to the two world wars
