    Hello Tessa,

    Many thanks for your post re: Sergiusz, this does list him as being at Monte Cassino, I have checked through all the records including duplicated awards and awards stripped from recipients due to desertion he is not listed,

    Tessa if you notice on section 20 Awards, the following are listed:

    1) British 1939-1945 Star

    2) British Italy Star

    3) Polish Army Medal

    4) Polish Cross of Valour

    5) British 1939-1945 War Medal

    6) British Defence Medal

    But the stamp of the 4th November 1949 shows only 2 Stars and I medal issued. This was due to the fact that if awarded the Army Medal one could not receive the British War Medal. Although some did due to their length of service.

    Could it be that Sergiusz served using a pseudonym ?

    The only other reason is that he was just missed of the List for some reason.

    I am scratching my head trying to think of why.

    I have searched through all the Recipients list for the Monte Cassino Cross with no luck in finding listed or any one with the service Number: 65377.

    Best wishes

    Hello DEAR Andrzejku
    The only solution is to check the Regimental Chronicle and the Daily Orders Book-Rozkazy Dzienne of the unit or units in which it served. For me, this is unfeasible ...

    Thank you so much Artur, i really appreciate that and thank you so much Andrzej for taking the time to search for me, i really appreciate it. Sergiusz never went by any other name that i know of. English people sometimes spelt his first name Sergie but i dont think that would of made a difference. Can i ask you to check another page of dates incase there is something written there?ill try attaching it to this message. Thank you so much again both of you, I will contact the MOD tomorrow and ask more questions

    Hi Artur thank you for replying, thank you for explaining what each one means - I had no idea. I was previously referring to XXIV number 2 but I think it’s just intoxication and after Monte Cassino, there is stuff written on XXV and I think I attached an image of XVI No5.
    So puzzled to why Sergiusz didn’t receive his Monte Cassino medal! If the MOD presented it to him in later years, would the MOD write it in the army book??
    Thank you again 😊
    Kind regards,Tessa

    Hello Tessa
    I will tell you your card about Sergiusz's units...tomorrow.
    This is not a literal translation and may contain language errors.
    They should find in daily orders they are in PISM.

    Seasons Greetings to You

    Hello andrzejku98,
    I saw you used my photos of ppor Frank LAchcik from 14 batalion Strzelców, called "Żbiki". He was a very far cousin of my grandmother from Swilcza near RZeszow. There was an article about Franciszek LAchcik in Swilcza's Newspaper. The article is available here:
    I try to collect as mamy information about him as I can. Would you be so kind to help me? I got 3docs from IPMS about circumstances of Frank's death and also IPMS gave to CAW docs about things, given to Frank's wife after hid death.
    But I have no document about his Monte Cassino Commemorative Cross nr 16206, do you have possibility to get one? I will be very grateful.
    He had no children, I tried to find his wife in Palestine, but each Jewish archives and Institutions said nothing about her, no traces.
    Am I able to get any docs from Ministry of Defence If I am not a direct relative?
    Best regards
