    Hi Andrzejku
    Thanks very much for all of that information. There seems to be the crossed swords form a merit cross on the uniform. Is there a way of verifying if he was awarded the merit cross?
    Thanks for your help and comments
    All the best
    James

    Hi James,

    The only way would be to contact the Polish Institute and General Sikorski Museum in London and ask them to check, but be prepared to wait anything upto 3 to 4 Months for a reply.

    Best wishes

    Andrzejku

    Thanks, that's a great idea. I can probably call in next time I'm in London if they will let me do it face to face.
    regards

    Hi James,

    If they are not to busy and you ask to use the reading room and ask if it is possible to see if the recipient was awarded the Cross of Merit with swords, plus you could also ask to see the folders containing the alphabetical lists of the 2nd Corps Soldiers awarded the Army Medal (Medal Wojska), there are different folders for the dates of the award ranging from awards announced on the: 16th April 1946, 22nd September 1946, 1st July 1947, 16th September 1947, 26th November 1947, 31st January 1948.

    I would have thought that his award would be in the files relating to the 2 dates in 1946.

    Anyway best of Luck James

    Hello!

    Sorry, in my opinion 10 Hussar's beret badge is ugly fake. I saw 100% genuine example and it was different made.

    Best Regards

    A parachute group on ebay. I'm afraid I just don't seem to be able to get my head round the parachute badges. This one isn't numbered so does this make it a copy? I hope not as it looks like a very nice group

    The beret looks a modern copy. The Medals look nice but they could be easily put together. The badge looks like a copy I bought myself at the Hartenstein Hotel in Holland... No original paperwork or photos. The group is very far away from being worth 1750 pounds...
