    Andrzej, could you please let me know to whom was the cross number 4665 originally awarded?
    I attach pictures of the Polish Cross for Combatant Action in the West and the Monte Cassino cross number 4665. They were both awarded to the same soldier. Would be very grateful for your help!
    Thank you.
