Zenon Sliwinski
Born in 1923. Zenon drove a tank under General Stanislaw Maczek (Commander of the Polish 1st Armoured Division) in the famous Normandy victory at Falaise, and after being badly wounded only managed to survive by playing dead between two German corpses.

It took him over 4 years to recover. Although disabled, he was able to work hard after the war. Zenon started his own business and continued to work for British Telecom at the same time for many years. Married to Winifred ƚliwinska, both happily live together in Glasgow.
