In II RP officers were seen as one of the most respectable positions in interwar society. Well-educated and excellently trained, those people were keystone in forming and developing Polish Army. Not only as soldiers, but also as the elite of Polish nation, officers influenced many aspects of life in 20th century Poland. Filled with patriotism and ready to sacrifice their lifes for the homeland, Polish officers gained respect even from the Germans.

In Black Brigade officers wore iconic black leather jackets making them unique and well-known commanders in the Polish Army. Some were equiped with helmets while others prefered berets. Either way those oficers were armed with Vis pistols, one of the best and most advanced weapons in polish armory.

Like in other units 10th Cavalry Brigade had field medics, ready to help wounded soldiers at any cost.

Finally Brigade were equiped with Ur anti-tank rifles. Designed in 1938 and produced in Poland Ur was one of the most advanced and innovative anti-vehicle weapons. Unfortunately Polish Army did not recieved enought rifles and infantry was not trained in time to use it efficiently. Many of wz. 35 rifles were kept in secret, which played it's role – Germans did not expect such weapon and were highly surprised.
