    Hi all,

    Got this one in the post today. Not an old medal by any stretch (awarded from 1990-1999), but still a nice looking award I think.

    It was awarded to all participants of the war still alive as of 10 August 1990, when the medal was established. It covers the Polish-Ukrainian war (1918-1919) as well as the Polish-Bolshevik war (1919-1921).

    Thanks for that Tony. I hope to get one with an award document sometime.

    Poland definitely has some great looking awards. I have 6 on the way from a seller at the moment, will post nice photos once they arrive
