    Hello Bernard,

    Many thanks for your post and may I be the first to welcome you to the Forum, I have been searching for you and have found the following information on the Recipient of the Monte Cassino Cross Numbered : 17807 when awarded the recipients details were as follows:

    Rank : Podporucznik (2nd Lieutenant(

    Surname : MILATA

    Christian Name : ALOJZY

    Fathers Name : ALOJZY

    Date of Birth : 1916

    Army Number : (also found on His ID tags) : 1916-145-III

    Unit : 16 Baon Strzelec (16th Rifle Battalion, 5 K.D.P. (5th Kresowa Infantry Division)

    In searching for Alojzy I found that he was captured by the Russians on the 19th September 1939 in Sarnki Górne, he joined the Anders Army at Tockoje on the 2nd September 1941 after his release from the gulags.

    Records show that he was either a Regular or Reservist in September 1939, confirmation can be obtained from the Army records Centre at Rembertow near Warsaw.

    Attachment 1054985

    I have also been able to find for you a photograph of Podporucznik Alojzy Milata. (click on the photograph to enlarge it in a new page).

    I also have copies of the yearly report from the 5KDP Association in London which also lists those former soldiers who had died during the year. With you saying Bernard that you had, had this cross for some years, I only have the 5KDP Pamplets from 1997-2009, but I thought that I would check them anyway for you. In the 2002 Issue Nr 59 on page 58 the death was listed of Major Alojzy Milata who had died that year in Italy.

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

    Best wishes

    Andrzej

    Hello Artur,

    Many thanks for your post, I have gone through the Recipients List for the Monte Cassino Cross and unfortunately I could not find either Adolf MATAN or Antoni POŹNIAK listed.

    The photograph of Adoilf Matan only shows the award of the Medal Wojsko and then the British 1939-1945 Star, Italy Star and the 1939-1945 War Medal.

    I have also looked through both Professor Wesolowski and Dr Andrzej Suchcitz books on the Recipients of the Virtuti Militari and was only able to find the following listed as recipients of the Virtuti Militari

    1) Plut.sp. Stanisław POŹNIAK VM Nr: 3573

    2) Pulkownik Wiktor POŹNIAK VM Nr: 1808

    With regards to the letters O.C. on the reverse of the photograph of Adolf Matan this is an abbreviation for Officer Commanding, I will look onto who was Major Lalko and post it later.

    Apologies for not being able to help you further with this Artur.

    Best wishes

    Andrzej

    Hello Artur,

    With regards to Major Lalko, I have been able to find the following information for you

    Date of Birth : 19th May 1892

    Date of Death : 17th February 1979

    Rank : Podpulkownik (promoted from Major to Podpulkownik by President August Zaleski in 1969).

    In 1923 using the Rocznik Oficerski 1923 Index Page 1694 Mikołaj Lalko was listed on pages : 81, 191, 435.

    He was at that time a Porucznik serving in the 23 Pulk Piechoty attached to the 2nd Corps Headquarters in Lublin under the command of General Jan Romer working in the Artillery and Armament Department. He was promoted to Porucznik on the 1st June 1919 and was 1421 in seniority.

    By 1932 Porucznik Mikołaj Lalko using the Rocznik Oficerski 1932 index page 969 Lalko Mikołaj is listed on Pages 300, 444. By that date he was a Kapitan KZ sr. working in the Armament Department of the Ministry of Military Affairs.

    During the war he was made Commandant of a training school in the Middle East for the newly established 2nd Corps.

    Unfortunately Artur he was not at Monte Cssino, I have not been able to find anything further on him for you.

    Best wishes

    Hello Artem,

    Many thanks for posting the photograph of Alfons Zukowski, who served in the Podhale Brigade and was a Narvik Veteran (he is wearing the Lanyard and Badge) as well as the 1st Rifle Brigade badge.

    I will look through my 1st Armoured Division Books to see if he is mentioned.

    Best wishes

    Hello Artem,

    Many thanks for your post, I have looked through the recipients of the Monte Cassino Cross for Aleksander Kondratowich, unfortunately I could not find anyone listed with that spelling.

    But I did find the following Strzelec Aleksander Kondratowicz, Son of Piotr born 1908, Army Number: 1908-49-III, Unit 9 Kompania Łączności (9th Signals Company), awarded the Monte Cassino Cross Numbered : 31073.

    He was either a pre war Regular or Reservist arrested on the 19th September 1939 in Wolkowysk and joined the Anders Army at Tatiszczewo on the 3rd September 1941.

    That is all that I have been able to find for you Artem.

    Best wishes

    Andrzej
