    At some point in the past the Noble grouping was separated and held in two private collections in the US. Two years ago this amazing set was reunited. Although unfortunately not in my collection.

    Hello DEAR Andrzejku

    Does Suchcitz's monograph mention the units in which the soldiers served?
    Suchcitz's book about Virttuti Militari was borrowed by a colleague from the Central Military Library. I do not have this book in any library. I just photocopied the VM for PSZ. The rest of the broadcasts, unfortunately, not too high volume and cost. Colleagues again borrow this book from the Central Military Library.

    Virtuti Militari Thread

    Is it possible to provide a unit where the following soldiers served:

    1.starszy ułan NEYMAN Stanisław VM Nr 4032.Rank starszy ułan.Unit ???
    2.wachmistrz BOKOTA Józef VM Nr 3827.It's on the list awarded 9 pułku ułanów.
    3.ułan GRUDZIŃSKI Antoni born 1897-11-17 Wilno.Fathers name Antoni.Later a general.It's on the list awarded 14 pułku ułanów.Rank ułan.VM Nr ???
