    Hello Dom,

    The Ceskoslovensky Valecny Kriz 1939 (Czechoslovakian War Cross 1939), not really my area of expertise but from what I can remember reading somewhere that they where produced by Spink and Son, King Street St James's in London at that time.

    The War Cross obverse and reverse for everyone to see.

    Hopeful Dom, some other members of the forum will jump in and be able to provide more information on this Cross.

    Best wishes
