104th anniversary of the establishment of the Polish Navy

Written by

"On November 28, 1918, I order the creation of the Polish Navy, at the same time appointing Navy Colonel Bogumił Nowotny as head of the Navy Section at the Ministry of Military Affairs."

This order, signed by the head of state Józef Piłsudski, is considered the founding act of the Polish Navy.

On November 28, 1627, the victorious Battle of Oliwa took place, in which the Polish fleet, under the command of Admiral Arendt Dickmann, defeated the Swedish squadron blocking Gdańsk.

On the occasion of the 104th anniversary of the establishment of the Navy, an order was issued by the Rector - Commandant of the Naval Academy.

The Rector-Commandant honored the staff and military employees of the AMW for special achievements in the performance of official duties, exceptional commitment and service and work that goes far beyond the scope of duties.
