    Karl would I also be correct in thinking that your Grandfather published his Life story and Family History in " A Journey through Foreign Lands".

    If you are still puzzled then I will answer the question for you. Kanonier Dobrislaw Maciej Hajn was awarded the MCC Numbered : 5135 whilst serving as a Kanonier in 2KPAL, later promoted to Bombadier.

    The MCC Legitymacja Numbered 44505 was awarded to His Father Franciszek Hajn a Sierzant serving in the 23rd Transport Company, born in 1893.

    So the face of the Recipient of the Monte Cassino Cross Numbered 5135 is

    Remember be oin your guard when groups of paperwork appear they just might not be what they purport to be.
