    Default St Georges Cross N° 126 870

    HI, I have found a St Georges Cross which number is 126 870. I have done some research and found it was awarded to Sergent PILLARD J. from 291° Infantery Regiment in March 1915. This information comes from the regimental newspaper (database "Mémoire des Hommes").
    Unfortunatly I can't find anything else on this soldier. I would need more information: first name (J=Jean ?), date of birth, regimental roll .... May be someone has a database with the St Georges recipient names and could give me more detailled information ?
    I have also sent an email to the Russian Ambassy in Paris last week but received yet no answer ....

    Best regards, Georges.

    Hello, may be you're right but in my case this cross was officially awarded to this soldier with that number among several others. I have the official french document (Journal Officiel de la République Française) with the name and number of the cross.

    So no doubt it is an original one. May be also some fakes were produced afterwards taken some numbers in official document. My question remains the same. Is there a way to find information on the recipient of the cross ?

    Best regards.

    First the document from the "daily operations regimental logbook" as of March 1915:



    Then the cross. It is in poor condition very worn out. I found it on the flea marmet in a box with other French medals from WWI.




    I can't copy the "Journal Officiel" as there are too many pages.
