    Hello Bogusław,

    Many thanks for your post, unfortunately I was not able to find much at all nothing about his death at all, but what I did find is listed below:

    When awarded the Monte Cassino Cross the recipients details were as follows:

    Rank : Starszy Strzelec (Lance Corporal)

    Surname : MIKA

    Christian name : Jan

    Date of Birth : 1908

    Army Number : (also found on His ID tags): 1908-67-III

    Unit : 3rd Carpathian Division Material Park

    Monte Cassino Cross Numbered : 8910

    I also found out that by the end of the war he was a Kapral Pdchr. (Corproal Officer Cadet)

    That is all I was able to find for you Bogusław.

    Best wishes

    Thank you very much. Would it be possible to get the mcc number? I would love to be able to get the medal for his son, but that is probably impossible. Regards, Boguslaw.

    Hello Andrezej,
    Thanks a lot for your help. I just learned the word jok. My English is not very good.
    Wanting to post the cross, I realized that I made a mistake in the number. I am sorry for that.
    Is it possible to have the information for this cross.
