    Hello Igor,

    I have been able to glean the following information from the Rocznik Oficerski for the following years: 1923/1924/1928/1932, with regards to Bronislaw Rafalski.


    1923: Pages: 308, 393, 427: Porucznik in the 64pp attached to 1 pulk Czolgow. Awards listed as follows: VM5, KW, Ang, MC (British Military Cross)

    1924: Pages:141, 432: Porucznik 8ppLeg.

    1928: Pages: 135, 209: Kapitan (born: 4-5-1897), Page: 209 : Kadra Oficerski Piechoty, Page 135: Kpt, VM5, KW, Ang. MC, ML.Fr.MCCG (Medaille Commemorative de la Grande Guerre). 1 pulk Czegow attached KOP.

    1932: Pages: 53, 563 : Kapitan 35pp (Date of Birth: 4th May 1897), awards listed as VM5, KW2.

    That is all that I could find for Bronislaw Rafalski

    I hope that it is of some use and help.

    Andrzejku, Thank You !!!

    Interesting information !
    Bronislaw Rafalski awarded British MC for WWI ?

    In web I find some Information -
    Tank Training Centre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    " On 20 September 1941 Major Szostak, Commander of the Polish Armoured Forces in the Soviet Union submitted a wide ranging training plan for the Polish Units by proposing to create a training centre of tank and transport troops to be attached to the Soviet Tank Training School in Saratov. The plan was approved by Gen Anders and submitted to the Soviet authorities in Moscow. Their agreement was never received. Then Major Szostak, on his own initiative, approached Col Rogonin commanding officer of the Saratov Tank School with a plan to train Polish units which were being formed, on the School equipment. Col Rogonin favoured the plan but its approval was never received from the Ulianovsk Military District. At the beginning of January 1942 Gen Anders ordered further enlargement of the Polish Forces in the Soviet Union. At the same time the army command started making plans to adopt British army structure and Major Szostak, on 15 Jan, 1942 ordered the formation of the following units:

    Organisation Centre of Tank Units - c.o. Capt Bronislaw Rafalski
    Tank Training Centre - c.o. Major Felsztynski (Order 150/tjn. Br.Panc.)"

    And - komander of 4 Pulk Pancerny (PSZ) "Skorpion" Capt. Bronislaw Rafalski
    [с 15.01.1942 - 01.06.1942]

    May be anybody have Information about Rafalski after June 1942 ?

    Hello Igor,

    In the Register of the Virtuti Militari by Wesolowski, the 3 Romanians named above appear as follows:

    9710- Colonel Constantin Malomuceanu

    9718- Captain Matei Vasiliu

    9736- Sergeant Tanase Bajan (Wesolowski has an A instead of your O)

    All the above where announced in Daily Orders on the 27th February 1922 according to the Wesolowski Book, did not find them listed in the Suchcitz book he lists crosses numbered 9700-9739 as at the disposal of the King of Romania.

    Best wishes
