    Default Anyone know who the Polish International called M Pawlaw is?

    I'm trying to help Gary resolve the names of some players who appeared for Forest for his site http://www.thecityground.com/home.php

    I'm stuck on a Polish international called M Pawlaw who guested for us in 1942. You can see the games he played here http://www.thecityground.com/player....ame=M%20Pawlaw

    The following report shows that he was also picked to play for Notts.


    If anyone knows Pawlaw's forename, could you add it to this thread please

    Mieczyslaw Pawlaw. That's as much as I know.

    He wasn't in Poland's World Cup squad in 1938 and given that they didn't play another match after that until January 1946, I wouldn't pursue the 'Polish International' red herring.

    Thanks, I did find a site with some early Polish internationals and couldn't see him, but it didn't seem complete. I wasn't sure if the 'international' was an exageration, or if the spelling of Pawlaw might just be an anglicisation.

    With the full name I can see a link to a Lincoln City page about him that I couldn't see without the first name. Its a shame I can't access it though.

    Could he possibly have been one of the thousands of Polish servicemen who managed to escape the Nazis to join the British armed forces during the war, a fair few, I suspect, being pro footballers prior to the invasion of their country?

    If he stayed and settled here, might be worth searching for more Pawlaws? Could be his kids or grandkids? They might know a bit more about him...

    Maybe try Ancestry.com or something similar??

    Edit: maybe try Pawlak as well, that seems to be a much more common Polish name than Pawlaw - could be a typo, pretty common back in the day when faced with a forr'un sahnding name...

    It looks like he may have married a woman called Gladys Palethorpe in the Basford area in 1953, though her name was Waldron by birth. The name on the register is Mieczyslaw Pawlow, but I would imagine that it was him.

    There don't appear to be have been any children though.

    Note: If that is him under the Pawlow name, he died in 1998 in Leicestershire according to Ancestry.

    Is "M. Pawlaw" Polish for "A. Trialist"?

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    Reading a report for a game he played for Peterborough against Boston, Pawlow, its polish for a tricky left winger who needs three men to watch him.

    As I mentioned above, he died in 1998. As for the wife Gladys, that is a little trickier. There was a Serge Pawlow married a woman called Gladys, in Ilkeston therefore there were two Gladys Pawlows. Serge died in Nottinghamshire in 1979 accordinfg to Ancestry, and one of the Gladyses died in Notts in 1976, but I don't know which. 192.com shows a Gladys Pawlow living in Peterborough between 2002 and 2005. After that she either came off the printable electoral register or died.
