    Thanks for posting this Andrzejku . Wonderful to see such an incredible family grouping surviving fully intact, and especially as the main component relates to the Polish 2nd Corps commandos. Rare and desirable, needless to say. Thankfully the seller respects the historicity and is not splitting it up for shameless profiteering as is so often seen. Letís hope it ends up in a good home.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Hello Libau,

    May I be the first to welcome you to the Forum, is this cross in your collection if so it would be nice to see some photographs obverse and reverse of the cross.

    Your question on the Recipient of the Monte Cassino Cross Numbered : 8419 when awarded the Recipients details were as follows:

    Rank : Ulan (Cavalryman)

    Surname : MIKOLAJONEK

    Christian Name : WLODZIMIERZ

    Date of Birth : 1923

    Army Number : (also found on His ID tags) : 1923-84-III

    Unit : 12PULP (12th lancers Regiment)

    Awarded the Monte Cassino Cross Numbered : 8419

    By the end of the war he had risen in rank to Starszy Ulan (Lance Coporal) and had been awarded the KW (Cross of Valour 1939-1945).

    I could not find any further information for you on Wlodzimierz Mikolajonek.

    I sincerely hope that the above information is of some use and help to you Libau.

    Best wishes and Welcome to the Forum

    Andrzej

    Hi, Andrzej !

    Thanks a lot !
    I found this Cross in Belarus in 90's without ribbon
    Poossible , Wlodzimierz Mikolajonek had British Medals too ? (Italy Star, 1939 Star, War Medal) ?
    I think recepient was Belorussian , returned to USSR after War.
    All Belorussians - Anders soldiers were repressed in 50's ...
