Comrades,

I was wondering if anyone has any photos of the Polish wz.28 being used by Soviet troops. Any help would be most appreciated. Spaciba.

IIRC there's a picture of a partisan carrying one in Russia At War, 1941-45 by Vladimir Karpov.

I imagine that any captured ones would either have been issued from war reserve in Autumn/Winter 1941 or found their way into the hands of the partisans as above.

I couldn't find the photo in Karpov's book. However, there's a good one showing a column of partisans armed with DP's.

Someone sent me a link to www.battlefront.ru that has a colorized b/w shot of a wz.28 in action. I was also looking at a movie of the 1941 parade in Moscow. A group of soldaty march by with what appear to be Polish BAR's. The picture quality isn't great, but you can make out the barrel, front sight, and flash hider.

I'll have a look for it tonight, it's definitely in one of my books :D .

I wouldn't be surprised to see them in the 1941 October revolution parade, there's a cracking shot of a load of Lewis guns being carried by one unit from the same event.

BUM!

Now I can't find it. I do remember it clearly though. It's of a group of partisans (allegedly near Odessa) in a cart and one of the guys at the back looks to have a wz1928.

I'll have to keep looking now!
