Originally published in the Polish exile newspaper “Polska Walcząca” (“Poland Fighting”) in London, England, as a series of 17 weekly 4-page inserts in 1943, issues 14 (10 April) to 31 (7 August). Details are provided of each person’s surname, name, birthdate, birthplace, and current location. These locations are primarily in Teheran, Iran or in Africa. They are organised in alphabetical order by last name, though within each letter series the names are often out of order, so an entire alphabetical section should be reviewed to find a specific name.
