Honored Allies Wednesday: 18th Pomeranian Uhlan Regiment (Poland)


"18th Pomeranian Uhlan Regiment was a cavalry unit of the Polish Army in the Second Polish Republic. Formed in April 1919 in Poznan, it fought in the Polish-Soviet War and the Invasion of Poland.  In the interbellum period, the regiment was garrisoned in Grudziadz.  Pomeranian uhlans became famous for the legendary Charge at Krojanty.  Because of this action, the unit was awarded the Virtuti Militari of General Stanisław Grzmot-Skotnicki after they delayed the advance of the German infantry on 1 September, the first day of the Second World War."
