    Tony, instead of replica could the 'R' stand for Replacement? Did I read somewhere that you could write to the representatives of the Exile government or their association for a replacement award if the original was lost? That might explain the cross being numbered and the 'R'.



    Or am I imagining things?

    Hi Mike,

    You are correct, replacement items were indeed issued. But in my experience the Polish word "Duplikat" was used to identify replacement pieces. It was manually written on documents, and manually stamped onto badges.

    Just look how the wreaths attached. .... And how the patina has nearly been stripped off the badge.
    A geniune wreath has been married to a geniune badge ... where it does not belong.

    Ruining both.

    Hi Michal79,

    Yes I can confirm that the Monte Cassino Cross Numbered: 17345 was awarded to:

    Rank: Strz (Rifleman)

    Surname: NIECKO (with a slash above the letter C)

    Christian Name: Feliks

    Date of Birth: 1910

    Fathers Name: Marcin NIECKO (WITH A SLASH ABOVE THE LETTER C)

    Army Number (also founs on his ID Tags: 1910-54-III)

    Unit: 15 Batalion Strzelcow, 5KDP.

    Feliks was arrested in Wlodzimierz on the 20th September 1939, he is then listed in the Camp at Siewzeldorlag on the 19th June 1940, when released in 1941 he joined the Anders Army, but no date is listed.

    That is all the information that I could find on Feliks, I hope that it helps.

    Best wishes

    Hello Alexandr,

    Welcome to the forum, you asked if you could know who was awarded the Monte Cassino Cross Numbered: 36876:

    The recipient's details are as follows:

    Rank: Kanonier (Artilleryman)

    Surname: JALOWIECKI

    Christian Name: Wladyslaw

    Date of Birth: 1917

    Army Number (also found on his Identity Disc's) : 1917-49-III

    Unit: 8 Pulk Artylerii Przeciwlotniczej Ciezkiej

    Fathers Name: Wiktor

    Deported from Wolynska in 1940, released by the russians on 4th September 1941, unfortunately no date for him joining the Anders Army.

    Further information gleaned from the Regimental History is as follows:

    British Awards Legit Numbered: 351

    Medal Wojsko (Polish Army Medal) Legit Numbered: 05521

    2nd Corps Badge Numbered (Regimental History only lists 3 digits): 372.

    That is all that I could find on him for you, I hope that it is of some help and use.

    Best wishes

    Andrzejku
