    Images I believe of my uncle Władysław Sawicki born in 1921, Kanonier, 7 Pulk Artylerii PrzeciwLotniczy Lekkiej (7th Light Anti Aircraft Artillery Regiment) 2nd Group Artillery, 2nd Polish Corps. He was awarded the Monte Cassino Cross(36332) and the two other medals shown in the image. I was wondering if anyone knows the name of the two other medals and what they were given for.

    thank you

    2) War Medal 1939-1945, the qualifying period for this medal was 3 years service in the United Kingdom or 6 months overseas in territories subjected to or threatened by enemy attack. But it was only necessary to serve for 28 days to gain entitlement . The medal is unnamed.
