    Hello Igor,

    I went through my 4th "Skorpion" Armoured Regiment references and was unable to find any photographs of Captain Rafalski. I did find mention of his decorations. He is not listed as a VM receipient, only Polish Cross of Valour and the British Military Cross. This may be a different Rafalski, or possibly they avoided mention of his pre-war VM.

    I am moving this thread to the Polish Armored Forces in the West Forum where you'll stand a better chance of obtaining more information.

    Some information concerning Cpt. Rafalski can be fund under: Lista oficerów WP 1914-1939

    Detailed description concerning circumstances of gaining Virtuti Militari cross are available here: bron_pancerna

    Unfortunately, the text is in Polish only, however I hope it could be useful.

    Additionally, one can find some info concerning family connections of Cpt. Rafalski here – Okruchy wspomnie
    Her mother was Julia of Eysymont Rafalska (1871-1940), father Bronisław, siblings: Kazimierz (shot In exection by Germans in Warsaw on August 2, 1944) and Janina.
