    Hi Dzianis, and welcome.

    Unfortunately I don't believe that there are surviving records that provide the names of the recipients of the Przemysl Star by serial number.

    Regards,
    Tony

    "Charkov - Cementary Book" The book does not have his picture, but hopefully if there is next edition I would gladly give them the picture.
    He was a Cpt (my compatible translation for Tabory is wagon train, supply train (back then moved by horses)

    Here is a picture of Major Franciszek Zukowski. He got his VM # 1087 for Polish soviet war 1920 as a member of 29th Kaniowski Regiment.
    Look at the VM hanging off the picture frame and the one that he is wearing in the picture. He left home about 1st September 1939 and was not heard of since. His name is NOT on any missing, KIA, Katyn lists. Most likely killed somewhere in Ukraine.
    The picture and the VM was given to my brother by Mjr Zukowski's surviving daughter.

    Here is the first letter dated 25 October 1940. Por Mazur says that he is sending this letter with soldiers that are being released from captivity, that he was wounded on 9 Sept 1939 but that he is doing better and he worries about his parents. This letter has no address so most likely somone who knew him had delivered it.
    At that time in Szepetowka, Wolyn the soviets imprisoned about 12 thousand Polish POW's. They were releasing soldiers, however officers went to camps like Starobielsk.

    Here is his official post card from Starobielsk Camp dated 16 February 1940. Because of space they had to write very small letters and these letters were censored. He writes that he is doing ok, that he does not need anything, that they are being given everything. The address on the card is the same as on the letter above. There are russian and german cancellation stamps on the card.
    Another Officer and a teacher.......
