General Maczek Memorial update November 2018

The bench commemorating General Maczek and his contribution to the war effort in World War II has been unveiled in the forcourt to the City Chambers, High Street.

The monument to General Stanislaw Maczek was unveiled by Lady Fiona Fraser of Carmyllie and retired Captain Zbigniew Mieczkowski, who served under him.

It had been originally proposed that the memorial should be placed on Bruntsfield Links, as he lived nearby, and walked there often. As the memorial has now been placed at the City Chambers, it is proposed to honour General Maczek on Bruntsfield Links by naming one of the paths after him.
