    Hello Artur,

    Many thanks for your post, a little bit of searching found that they where Brothers, only Zdzisław Karol Gigiel-Melechowicz received the Monte Cassino Cross. But his Brother Mieczysław Antoni Maria Gigiel-Melechowicz may have fought also in the 2nd Corps but later on, after Monte Cassino.

    Their Father was Plk. Jozef Gigiel-Melechowicz who was murdered at Katyn

    Zdzisław Karol Gigiel-Melechowicz was born on the 15th September 1920 and died on the 20th May 2011

    Mieczysław Antoni Maria Gigiel-Melechowicz was born on the 22nd August 1922 and died on the 28th February 1991,

    Mieczysław applied for and was granted British Citizenship on the 3rd June 1954 whilst working as a Language Teacher (Russian) and living at 127 Chevening Road, London.

    And finally a photograph of Zdzisław and his wife and his Cousin and his wife reunited after years of searching
