Other Polish Formations
Attempts to create a Polish military formation were also undertaken in Transcaucasia. Here the promoter was the Polish District Organization, appointed September 2, 1917, by the delegates of the Union of Poles (Związku Polaków) in Erzerum, Sarakamysz, Batumi and Tbilisi. Soon it also started to form Polish brigades, one was set up in Tbilisi. May 1918 the position as Commander was held by Colonel Stanislav Rosnowski, who had to agree disarming his formation. It then had 138 officers and 269 soldiers. Since the autumn, there is no evidence of any more recruiting in the Caucasus beeing done Captain Stanislaw Wężyk.
Another separate Polish formation was the Polish Rifle Regiment in Moscow, the so-called "Bartosz Glowacki Regiment", it was organized by its commander, Colonel Casimir Majewski. On 23 April 1918 this unit, numbering about 850 officers and men, was disarmed by the Soviets.
Mediocre results were also reached in the attempts associated with forming a Polish Legion in Finland. At the head of this group, numbering about 400 soldiers and classified as part of I Polish Corps, was Captain (Rittmeister) Stanislaw Boguslawski.
