    Hi War Relics Forum Members,

    I have recently obtained set of items associated with Monte Cassino. Unfortunately, only papers, but among them I have found very interesting cover. I have never met such a cover for the Monte Cassino Cross Document. What do you think about it and have you got any information on this soldier who served before WWII in the 74th Infantry Regiment???

    Hi Jacek,

    A very Nice Acquisition, Pawel Zydek was born in 1909, his Fathers Name was also Pawel, he was a serving soldier before September 1939, fought in the September Campaign and was captured by the Russians in Kowel on the 23rd September 1939, then moved to the camp at Rowne-Lwow on 16th October 1939, no other mention until he joined the Anders Army at Tockoje on the 2nd September 1941.

    His Army Service Number: (Also found on his ID Tags): 1909-80-III, Unit 18th Rifle Batalion, 5KDP.


    I regards to your question about the cover for the Monte Cassino Cross Legitymacja, it is original, I have one that is a blue cover with gold lettering, though over the years it has been removed. I had mine in a group to the 12th Geographical Company, that did all the artwork for the Legitymacja, yours is the only second one that I have seen in over 30years of collecting, so WELL DONE A VERY FINE AQUISITION.

    Best wishes

    Andrzejku

    p.s. It would be worth the cost of a postage stamp to write a letter to the Army Records Centre at Rembertow, to see if they can provide you with photocopies of his service record, if they have it.

    Hi Jacek, thanks for sharing this. It's the first time I am seeing such a cover. Rare piece! Congratulations on your new acquisition

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Thank you guys for very good news. I supposed that it is something interesting because I have never met it, even in the literature…., but now when Tony and Andrzejku said that it is extremely rare I can be sure about it.

    Special thanks to Andrzejku for extra info regarding Pawel Zydek

    Cheers,
    Jacek

    I have forgotten to add that the unique cover of the Monte Cassino Cross Legitymacja, which is discussed above, had golden letters too, similarly to Andrzejku's cover. Unfortunately, these letters are worn down in most cases.

    Regards,
    Jacek

    Witam.
    Mam pytanie. Czy ktoś z Państwa orientuję się czy jest możliwość zidentyfikowania właściciela po numerze odznaczenia? Dotarłem tylko do takiej informacji, iż żołnierz tego odznaczenia należał do 5 Kresowej Dywizji Piechoty.Click image for larger version.

    Hello Merqin, and welcome to the forum . As this is an English speaking site I will translate your question:

    Quote by merqin View Post
    Does anyone of you know whether it is possible to identify the owner of this numbered cross? I have determined only that his cross was awarded to a soldier in the 5the Kresowa infantry Division.
    Andrzejku has the Monte Cassino Cross award list and will hopefully be able to provide you with an answer.

    Regards,
    Tony
