Order No 3

Soldiers of the Polish Military Forces!
The Commander-in-Chief - Major General Tadeusz Komorowski1, sharing the fate of his soldiers of the Warsaw Corps, was taken prisoner by the Germans.
As Commander of the National and Warsaw Fighting Army, under the most difficult conditions, General Komorowski fulfilled his military duty to the end with superhuman strength of mind.
I thank him on behalf of the Republic.
I believe that soon the time will come for his release, that he will take up his duties and will be at your head.
