    Hi All;

    After much digging via my uncle, I have managed to find a number relating to my grandfather who fought at Monte Casino

    Could someone help me by finding any details if possible on medal number 14125?

    We know very little apart from his inprisonment in Russia and participation in monte casino, so hoping this will
    Lead us to a few more bits of info on him.

    Thanks!

    Dave

    Hello Everyone,

    I believe in leaving the best to last, so to speak, whilst surfing I came across the following which I found on the internet :

    Monte Cassino cross

    Kapral pdchr. (Corporal / Officer Cadet) (Later Podporucznik / 2nd Lieutenant) Antoni Jerzy Januszewicz, 6BSK, VM Nr : 10872, KW x 2, MCC Nr : 5972.

    Born in Wilno on the 5th or 15th March 1921, he was killed in action on the 22nd November 1944 and was buried in the Polish Cemetery at Loreto, Grave Nr : 7-B-2, next to his Brother Jan.

    Monte Cassino cross

    St.Strz. Jan Januszewicz, 24KT, MCC Nr : 44893.

    Born in Warsaw on the 26th April 1919, he was killed in action on the 22nd July 1944 whilst serving in the 15BS (15th Rifle Battalion, 5KDP). He was buried in the Polish War Cemetery at Loreto in Grave Nr : 7-B-1.

    Monte Cassino cross

    Antoni & Jan Januszewicz's graves at Loreto Polish War Cemetery, take a look at the crosses that mark their graves and you will notice that they died 4 months apart. (although the PISM book that lists those killed during the war states that Jan was killed on the 23rd July).

    I hope that you like what I saved till last.

    Best wishes

    Andrzej
