The text of the award:
I have the great pleasure to inform you that the Kapituła Medalu Pamiątkowego (Chapter of the Commemorative Medal) has, unanimously, decided to honor the participants of the mapywig.org project, and in particular, Mr Tomasz Pluciński, with a Commemorative Medal on the 90th Anniversary of the Polish Military Geographic Service.

The medal is a token of appreciation for your work promoting the Geographic Service heritage and, in particular, the part played by the Military Geographic Institute. I would like to emphasize that your effort is greatly appreciated in military circles. 100 medals were struck, numbered 001 through 100. The medal for mapywig.org, numbered ‘010’ reflects the importance of your project in our eyes (…)”

Here is a brief summary of Inicjatywa Sala 216 (“Room 216 Initiative”):

It has been set up by a group of Polish Army officers with a passion to preserve and share documents of the Geographic Service of the Polish Army, in particular, those related to the WIG. A government building on Aleje Jerozolimskie 97 in Warsaw which, currently, houses the Office of Polish Military Geography was, in former times, WIG headquarters. In those days, Sala 216, “Room 216” of the building was a library, a briefing room, and a place where official meetings and ceremonies at the Military Geographic Institute were held.

More information on the virtual Sala 216 and some of the exhibits available can be found here in Polish.

Hi, I want to donate to mapywig 3 scanned WWII German maps from the Osteuropa 300K series (actually 3 Zusammenfassungen with 4 maps each). Is there a contact e-mail address?

p.s. red icons = very large files, i.e. 30 - 100 Mb.
