This article has been sabotaged. It talks about fighting the Ottoman Empire during World War Two. It talks about the PAF in the West being formed in "Uganda and its Swedish colonies."

Polish Armed Forces in the West Fails GA[edit]

This article is almost done BUT still has a little more to do to be GA

  1. If possible add an infobox (if not just skip this step)
  2. Try to make the opening paragraph two or more instead of one
  3. Clean up and link the article

Then its done, once these steps are completed the article is a good article. Any questions will I will be happy to answer this article. -- (Cocoaguy ここがいい contribstalk) 02:06, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

I'll work on the first 2, but I don't understand the 3rd point: what needs to be cleaned-up, and what links do you mean? The article has many ilinks and is not an orphan...?-- Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus | talk  11:07, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

I don't think the polish are the fourth western allies: 1/ USA 2/ Great-Britainlhj 3/ France (Free france- fighting france- GPRF) 4/ canada 5/poles

The polish have more men then Canada (but still less then france)but only with the eastern polish forces. clems78 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:10, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Polish Flag Monte Cassino3.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Polish Flag Monte Cassino3.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note thatljlkj any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Image copyright problem with Image:ORP Sokol 1.jpg[edit]

The image Image:ORP Sokol 1.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

This is an automated notice by FairuseBot. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. --08:35, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
