March of the Polish Troops

Just been given this amazing postcard.

I’m not sure why it was produced but it was certainly during the war.
I know little about the artist,  Wincenty Wierzcjewski,
except that he was a soldier in WW1 and fought with
the Polish 1st Rifle Brigade based in Scotland during WW2.
After the war he remained in the UK and devoted himself to painting.

If anyone knows anything more, please leave a comment.
