I write this in the hope that I can gain some assistance from you all with regards this project and too be honest mammoth task. For those who don't know me I'm Adrian Nessel who for many years have collected Polish Militaria. A number of years ago I decided to focus only on the aforementioned cross. Varients are of interest as are the recipients. The problem however is that the only good reference material on the subject is in Polish and for those who are not too confident with the language there are not too many other options. Further unlike the VM there is no formal list of recipients. So after much soul searching and following discussions with many, including your Moderators I've decided now is the time to begin this project properly.
To do this requires commitment from me but I'm not the fountain of all knowledge and as I specialise in one thing I'm looking towards you all to assist. I would like this to be a team effort and eventualy I'll be able to produce a book in English containing historical information, varient information, award document information/varients, biographies and as complete a list as possible of recipients from the beginning through to end of WWII.
I'm not discounting anything at this time but will probably not include PRL awards unless they are AK related. Well at least not in this book. Maybe something in the future but I can't say for now.
To assist me I require names of recipients supported with documentary evidence. Pictures of these documents and crosses received etc. However if you think you can help with anything Krzyz Walechnych related please make a post and I'll be in touch with additional contact information so as not to clogg the site.
