    I am not sure that all of the VM orders awarded to members of the AK are actually in the available published datasets/records. I vaguely recall seeing a list of VM recipients during the Rising from AK battle group "Gurt" that are not listed elsewhere.

    There is the VM that the young AK medic Irena Bytniewska (whose nom de plume was Irene Orska and died in 1986) writes in her 1946 published eye-witness account of the Rising being awarded to an 8-year-old girl during the 'Rising for her bravery as an AK liaison runner....this is not listed elsewhere either, just in this account.

    Maybe if the VM was awarded shortly after combat by the underground authorities some of the recipient lists were lost in the chaos of those times or never made it back to the government-in-exile?

    Who had the legal authority in the underground state to award the VM to combatants in occupied Poland?

    I always wondered about the history of my grandfather...
    Supposedly he was born October 1896 Wladyslaw Przybylski in Laszlo Poland and was awarded the medal.
    I do have a picture of him with my Dad and Aunt. His wife's name was Natalia.

    Hello Krys, and welcome.

    Wladyslaw Przybylski is not included in either the Suchcitz or the Wesolowski listings. There is a Wladyslaw Przybyl however, as you can see below. Do you have any information about the unit he served in?

    Thanks Andrzej. That’s the one. I refer to this as the Suchcitz list, although there were two others involved in the preparation of the book. I searched far and wide over a long time to find my copy. Evidently only a small batch was printed.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Hello Mraz,

    In answer to your Post yes it does Alphabetical Names with Numbers only unlike Wesolowski's Register that lists Alphabetical Names then Numerically by Number.

    The Suchcitz book does give and History of the Orders Chapter which is extremely good post war.

    Hope that this helps

    Best wishes

    Andrzej
