The term "CICHOCIEMNY" (literally meaning silent and dark) was coined during the training of "special purpose" soldiers in Great Britain and used even in the training manual of Section VI in 1941.
This nickname was supposed to reflect the nature of tasks to which the paratroopers were prepared: silently and in the dark. The will of our Patrons was to maintain this term, which could soon come out of use with the last Silent Unseen passing away. At the request of the GROM Commander the Minister of National Defence introduced the "CICHOCIEMNY" patch, which soldiers are entitled to wear after completing the basic course.
