You always assume it's a false stereotype but they really did wear them all the time. Why?

"Troops of the 1st Polish Corps man an armoured train on a line at North Berwick in Scotland. The train was armed with a 6-pdr gun, two Boys anti-tank rifles and six Bren guns" North Berwick, Scotland, February 1941.

Between 1940 and 1943, twelve armoured trains operated by the Polish Army in the West patrolled the railways of Britain from the coasts of Cornwall to the Scottish Highlands.

The twelve armoured trains, built in the Derby Carriage and Wagon works and LNER works in Stratford where created as a defensive measure within Britain while the threat of a German invasion of the British mainland was still very real.

One of the armoured trains included in this number was in reality a miniature train which ran on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway along the south Kent coast. The only armoured miniature train in the world.

The twelve armoured trains were divided between four dedicated Polish battalions before their operation was handed over to the Home Guard in 1942. After the threat of invasion faded the armoured train battalions were disbanded. Four did however, remain in service in Scotland for a while longer with the last being withdrawn in November 1944.

The Polish Army was located in Scotland from the summer of 1940 and began immediate rebuilding. The troops were to remain in Scotland until the end of the war. Organised into the Polish Corps (later the 1st Polish Corps following the formation of the 2nd Corps in the Middle East), Polish troops were involved in the defence of the Fife region of eastern Scotland from a potential German invasion from Norway. The Corps became the base on which the 1st Armoured Division, the 1st Independent Parachute Brigade, the 4th Infantry Division and 16th Independent Armoured Brigade were formed.

"Karl-Gerät" (040/041) (German literally "Karl-device"), also known as Thor and Mörser Karl, was a German self-propelled siege mortar (Mörser) designed and built by Rheinmetall.

Its heaviest munition was a 60 cm (24 in) diameter, 2,170 kg (4,780 lb) shell, and the range for its lightest shell of 1,250 kg (2,760 lb) was just over 10 km (6.2 mi). Each gun had to be accompanied by a crane, a heavy transport trailer, and several modified tanks to carry shells (Munitionschlepper).

Seven guns were built, six of which saw combat between 1941 and 1945. It was used in attacking the Soviet fortresses of Brest-Litovsk and Sevastopol, bombarded Polish resistance fighters in Warsaw, participated in the Battle of the Bulge, and was used to try to destroy the Ludendorff Bridge during the Battle of Remagen. Only one exists today; the others were scrapped after the war.
