    Hi Igor,

    Interesting cross Ė and inscription. It appears to have been converted for brooch mounting that may have been for a female recipient. Iíve seen such mounting conversions before which have been identified as being for the fairer gender.

    I canít quite make sense of the text other than the date and place name. April 21, 1945 marks the liberation of the Italian city of Bologna after almost two weeks of fighting. Early on that day troops of the Polish 2nd Corps had battled their way into the city center to mop up the last remaining German resistance and were greeted by the Italians as their liberators.

    Thanks for posting this cross.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Hi Igor,

    I donít think so. The Polish Cross of Merit is not a decoration worn on a cravat, in the manner of say the Polonia Restituta or Virtuti Militari orders. The trimming of the ribbon and the way it has been fastened to the ribbon ring is definitely brooch mount style. Do you have a picture of the reverse of the ribbon? I would not be surprised to find a safety pin there.

    Cheers,
    Tony
