General Stanisław Maczek was commander of the famous 1st Polish Armoured Division which operated within the Allied military forces during the Second World War. The troops he led participated in the battles on the Western Front, including the Battle of Normandy, and later in the liberation of several Flemish cities: Roeselare, Aalter, Ypres and Ghent, as well as the city of Breda in the Netherlands. General Maczek died at the age of 102 in Scotland, but following his last will his body was buried in Breda with his soldiers.
