Aleksandra Piłsudska (1882-1963), née Szczerbińska, joined the Polish Socialist Party (PPS) in 1904. She was soon acting as a PPS agitator and also joined the military arm of the PPS, Organizacja Bojowa, where she became a courier and stockpiler of weapons. In 1906, she met Józef Piłsudski who in 1918 would become the first and only Chief of State of the Second Polish Republic. During the First World War, Pilsudska worked in the intelligence and communication section of the First Brigade of the Polish Legions, and became involved with the Polish Military Organisation (Polska Organizacja Wojskowa). In 1921 she married Józef Piłsudski after his first wife had died. After the German invasion of Poland in September 1939, she fled to the United Kingdom. There, she wrote her memoirs, and lived in London until her death.
