Polish military records help?

I was wondering if anyone knew how I would check Polish military records?

I am looking for the names either

Pogroszewski / Pogoreski (or an alternate spelling)



that would have been stationed in Scotland in late 1940 (September / October time) probably around the St Andrews area.

Any ideas?

Might possibly help, table of which Polish units were where

for eg "During and after the War the Polish Army was quartered in different areas of Scotland. Initially it was based in camps located south-east of Glasgow. (see OB for August 1940) but in October 1940 moved to the east coast of Scotland, to Fife, Angus and Perthshire."

Long shot but as it mentions personal documents...
