NO4723 : Polish Army building, Tentsmuir

taken 11 years ago, 3 km from Leuchars, Fife, Great Britain

Polish Army building, Tentsmuir
Polish Army building, Tentsmuir
Here and there amongst the trees there are still signs of the Polish Army camp in Tentsmuir Forest. The Free Polish Army had a major presence in this area during the second world war and Tentsmuir's long and wide beaches were guarded by the Poles against an invasion threat from Norway. I don't know for sure what use this substantial building had and I couldn't get closer due to a major drain and brambles but I would guess it was an ablutions block. Southern aspect.
