Tadeusz Lesisz MGB document

Tadeusz Lesisz was a Polish Navy cadet in 1939, escaping to the UK on ORP Burza. After Royal Navy courses in anti-submarine warfare and naval gunnery he found himself, in July 1940, second-in-command of S3, one of several motor gun boats assigned to Polish crews. Based at Fowey in Cornwall, the Polish-crewed boats were charged with protecting Channel shipping and reconnoitring the approaches to the French ports. This document is titled in Lesisz's album "przy objęciu scigacza" (acquisition of the chasers) and would have been the paperwork from Lesisz obtaining the MGBs from the RN for the Polish Navy.
