Hello Sharon,
yes, in 1914 he was definitely too young but maybe your grandfather 
thought of 1917 or even the time after 1918 when the new established 
Polish army fought against the revolutionary Russia.

During WWI there was no Polish army but PILSUDSKI's Polish Legion under 
Austrian command (General Heinrich KUMMER von FALKENFELD).
