    Thank you so much for the quick reply and the information. From the number of the cross I am assuming strz Obara belonged to the 17 Lwowski Bat.

    Would you be so kind also to provide me with some information reg recipients of 26894, 41438 and 43310?
    Many thanks.

    And now for something completely different. Some years back I had the opportunity to purchase this Italian State Mint test pressing of the cross. It was part of a 2nd Corps officer's grouping. For one reason or another I (now regrettably) passed it up. It apparently now resides in a private collection in Poland. Cheers, Tony

    Jan Stanisław Roszek was born in Zakopane on 5 June 1896. During the Great War he served in Piłsudskis 1st Brigade. In 1926 he graduated from Lww University. Between the wars he was listed as a Reserve Second Lieutenant in the 40th Infantry. In the Second World War he was awarded the Monte Cassino Cross as Lieutenant and Doctor in the Ordnance H.Q. of the 2nd Polish Corps. For his war services he was awarded the Cross of Merit 2nd Class with swords. For some post war services of a civil nature he was awarded the Cross of Merit 1st Class.
