A Campaign is under way to commemorate the most accomplished Polish tank commander of the Second World War by erecting a memorial in the Meadows.

General Stanisław Maczek, who played a crucial role in the Normandy campaign, risked his life for his country, but was exiled for his efforts and spent his final years in Marchmont.

Lord Peter Fraser of Carmyllie, QC, is now spearheading a drive which, it is hoped, will see the general immortalised in a brass memorial.
