I have exactly the same photograph from my mother, Irena (the "J" is an old fashioned "I") Nuckowska, back row, far right. She would be about 17 yrs and 6 months old (having lied about her age.) The signatures on the back of my copy include Julia's and Joanna's.
My mother's Service number was 2792742, and Julia and Joanna's were 2792840 and 2792841 respectively (taken from WAAF records.)
I think they were part of the 594 recruits who started training March 3rd 1944. Training was 2 months (plus language training for 5 weeks?)
My mother was born in Stolpin, near Toporow, Tarnopol, deported in the first February wave to Piermogorje, north of Kotlas, south of Arkhangel to a logging camp. Travelled back through Kazakhstan, Almaty, Tashkent, Krasnoborsk, Caspian Sea, Teheran, Isfahan orphanage, Karachi, Africa to England.
I have the same certificate for my Dad, dated 16 November 1943
My sisters and I, believe that the two girls on the right are Jadwiga (Kabza) Zemanek (my aunt who still lives in Chelsea) and we're not absolutely sure but the girl next to her may well be our mother Zofia Zemanek.I have a photo closer up and I really think it is them!
I am almost positive that the girl standing on the left of the crouching person is my aunt Wanda Zemanek. How amazing it is to scroll through these photos and to actually recognize a member of my family!!!

Hello I think this maybe the RC Church of All Nations in Jerusalem. My Dad was also in Jerusalem on 16 November 1943.Any other thoughts on this? I quote "One of the biggest manoeuvres to take place in the Middle East were held in Palestine in November 1943. The exercise, known as "Exercise Virile", involved the 2nd Polish Corps - the 'Philistine' Army - attacking the rest of the Ninth British Army, called the 'Levant' Army. The battle area was inside of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Tiberias triagle. Amongst the nationalities, included in the 'Levant' Army, were British, Indian (Gurkhas, Sikhs), Arab Legion, Transjordan Frontier Force, Greeks, Chasseurs Libanairs, Senegalese and East Africans.
General Michał Tokarzewski-Karaszewicz, the Deputy CO of the 2nd Polish Corps, General Bolesław Szarecki, the Head of 2nd Corps Medical Services, and General Roman Odzierzyński, the CO of the 2nd Artillery Group (2nd Corps), planning their part of operations indoors of the 'Philistines' Army HQs:.

To 'Shrine Garden' - Top oliwna.Palestyna . This is the Basilica of the Agony , which is also called the Church of Gethsemane Church of All Nations , located in the authentic rock where Jesus prayed, " Move away this cup from me " .Zapewne so also prayed for our soldiers .
Dziękujemy za uwagę.
To jest Palestyna. Betlejem kościół Narodzenia Pańskiego - najstarszy kościół chrześcijański na świecie.
Do 'Shrine Garden' - Góra oliwna.Palestyna. To jest Bazylika Konania, czyli Kościół Getsemani nazywany też Kościołem Wszystkich Narodów , znajduje się w nim autentyczna skała, gdzie Jezus modlił się "Oddal ode Mnie ten Kielich".Zapewne tak tez modlili się nasi żołnierze.
