    Hello Artur,

    Many thanks for your post, a few corrections to add to your post,

    1) Plut.sp. Benjamin FROSZTĘGA, photograph of grave below:

    Monte Cassino cross

    Plut.sp. Benjamin FROSZTĘGA was buried in grave 3-A-13, 2KPAL he was awarded the Monte Cassino Cross Numbered : 833.

    With regards to St.Ulan. Jan Hołyński, no information found on him receiving Monte Cassino Cross.

    The Monte Cassino Cross Number you stated Nr: 38316 was in fact awarded to Plut.sp. Leopold Grym 1912-41-III, PUK.

    I hope that the above clarifies the matters for you

    Best wishes

    Hi Andrzejku98 - I have just seen your collection of Monte Cassino medals and I have noticed that one of them is my Grandfather! (Czeslaw Affek) He used to talk about his time in Italy when we were younger - his children (my mother and her siblings) would be so happy to see this medal. Do you still have it in your possession??

    Hello Hayley,

    May I be the first to welcome you to the Forum, many thanks for your post yes I do still have the cross, I purchased it from Toad Hall Medals.

    Your Grandfather Czesław Affek was born on the 14th September 1914, after he came to the UK he married Margherita M Giampietro in 1956 and died in Teignbridge in Devon in 2002.

    I have attached the photograph of the Monte Cassino Cross awarded to your Grandfather below with his service details Hayley,

    Monte Cassino cross

    Monte Cassino Cross Numbered : 23637 awarded to Ulan (Cavalryman) Czesław Affek, Service Number: 1914-55-III, Unit 15PULP (15th Poznan Lancers Regiment).

    If you have a photograph of your Grandfather it would be nice to see.

    Once again Hayley, welcome to the Forum.

    Best wishes
