    For 100% it is a member of the Polish Gymnastic Society “Falcon” (Polskie Towarzystwo Gimnastyczne „Sokół”).
    Established in 1867 with aim of promotion of gymnastics and national revival in all parts of partitioned Poland. It was in fact a paramilitary organization preparing young men for struggle for independent country before 1914. More info on Sokó

    Hi Igor,

    Yes you are correct the Order of the Lion and the Sun, but in 1925 Persia under the Pahlevi's changed it's title to the Persian Order of Homayeun, I have included a photograph of the Officers Cross below, the same type was awarded to Count Zamoyski.

    Hi guys,

    The second award with the question mark was properly identified by Andrzejku98 becaause it is in fact Veterans Commemorative Cross of the Pulawski Legion. I am absolutely sure about it, moreover it is the first version of this cross - the picture of it you can find below.

    Regards,
    Jacek
