On the whole question of "integrated" and what it meant - there were two aspects to this. One was whether or not a particular organization recognized the authority of the Polish Government in Exile and the Delegature, and the second one was whether or not they subordinated themselves to AK command. The second aspect was more of a continuum - in some cases, a particular organization was directly incorporated into AK in others they were allowed to retain their own officers, structures etc. Some organizations did one but not the other.

In this regard, I think both the Jewish groups, ŻZW and ŻOB were "approved" by the Polish Government in Exile and in turn they recognized its authority. They also recognized AK as the official Polish army, though they were never "incorporated" into AK simply because they operated in the ghettos where AK did not have a presence. So I think listing them as "Non-Integrated" is somewhat misleading, though at the moment I can't think of a better term that would be succinct enough for the infobox.VolunteerMarek 16:56, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
