    Hello Everyone,

    This Monte Cassino Cross is being listed on Ebay as awarded to a Staff Nurse, I just thought that I would also share what I have found out about the owner and their Spouse.

    Monte Cassino cross

    Monte Cassino Cross Numbered : 42942 was awarded to :

    Rank : Siostra Salowa

    Surname : BRONIEWSKA

    Christian Name : MARIA

    Date of Birth : 12th July 1914

    Place of Birth : Rawa Ruska, Lwow Provence then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire

    Army Number : (also found on Her ID Tags) : 1914-171-III

    Unit : 3 Szpital Wojenny (3rd Military Hospital)

    After the end of the war Maria came to the UK and settled near Penley in Flintshire in Wales where in 1955 she Married Zygmunt Maria Kultys. (Volume 8a Page : 1587)

    No onto her Husband Zygmunt Kultys who after the end of the war settled in Flintshire and in 1968 was granted British Citizenship, the London Gazette entry is as follows:

    Kultys Zygmunt Maria, Physiotherapist, Polish Hospital, Penley, Wrexham, Denbighshire, 16th June 1968.

    During the war Zygmunt Kultys was a Podporucznik awarded the Parachute Badge Numbered 4376, his Code Name was : Chmura 2.

    Zygmunt Maria Kultys was born in Lwow on the 1st December 1909.

    That was all that I was able to find on them both apart from the following information :

    Maria Kultys died on the 13th April 1977 and was buried in Penley Cemetery, Zygmunt Maria Kultys died on the 24th April 1997 and was buried with his late wife at Penley.
