    Hello BasiaS,

    Many thanks for your email, it is nice to find a needle in a haystack once in a while.

    The PISM (Polish Institute and General Sikorski Museum) has on its web site, Documents one of which is Spis Rodzin Wojskowych Wywiezionych do Z.S.S.R. ( List of Families with Members serving in the Polish Armed Forces Deported to the U.S.S.R.) the List is dated 1944.

    Entry Nr 10484 (page 874):

    Serbinski Marian son of Jan aged 62, Zona: Paulina aged 56, Corka: Smorzewska Stanisl. Aged 30, syn: Zdzislaw Ogn.pdchr (Sergeant artillery Officer Cadet).

    This can be downloaded from the PISM website Document: KOL 138.

    I sincerely hope that you find this useful and informative.

    Best wishes

    Hi Basia,

    Yes, it is a commemorative piece in the form of a traditional military gorget. The text around the perimeter appears to say "On the 10th Anniversary of the (Polish) 2nd Corps Victory in the Battle of Monte Cassino (followed by two words I can't quite discern) Gen. W. Anders".

    All thoughts and opinions expressed are those of my own and should not be mistaken for medical and/or legal advice.
