    Hello Everyone,

    Mark has sent me the following email, which I decided to answer on the Forum's site rather than send a private email.

    Hi Pan Andrzej,

    I’m afraid I’m going to be troubling you with a few questions over the next few days, but I am appealing to your generosity and spirit of altruism as it is in a good cause. I was thinking last night and realized that the people who contact me for information do not need to know the recipients names… since they are family members and the recipients are their fathers/grandfathers/uncles etc. What they need to be able to carry out their research is the unit.

    A couple of questions about the 2 Brygada Pancerna starting with Colonel Wladyslaw Bobinski MCC28751 and finishing at 32269. I have the records of the first 45 crosses as HQ 2BP down to 28796 Bulka Miron and then I have a gap - my next record is 28992 Por. Mieczyslaw Bialkiewicz of 4PPanc 2BP.

    So question No1 – where does HQ end and where does 4PPanc begin and end? I also fairly sure there is another Company sized unit before we get to the 6PPanc.

    Question No2 - MCC30359 Pplk. Feliks Motyka was CO of 6PPanc 2BP Dzieci Lwowskich so does his regiment start with him? If there were about 630 men in the regiment then there must be another Company sized unit from around 30988 to 31188 Not sure about these numbers. Any ideas?

    From 31189 to 31385… thats a group of 197 crosses (I’m pretty sure of the numbers) What unit were they?

    I know 31386 to 31780 were the 395 crosses of 9 Komp Zaop. [9 Supply Coy.]

    From there, 31781 onwards there are 489 crosses which I’m guessing are all of the other little units of the brigade including the 6 Field Court at 32259. Any other units worth mentioning?

    I hope this is not too much trouble. If you have the list as a searchable index then I hope this does not present too many difficulties. When someone emails me and says they have found their grandfather’s cross with this number on the back it would be nice to be able to tell them where he served and what he did. We do direct them to the Polish Army Records Section in Northolt but what they get can seem sterile to some.

    Best regards, Mark Ostrowski

    Default The middle number...

    Dear Kosa, What you say may well be true. I assumed the same for a long time but... take this example: MCC 31391 por. KOZUB, Wladyslaw 1910/462/III That would mean there were 462 KOZUBs in 2 Polcorps… that is about 1% of all the MC Crosses. That can’t be right. 400 KOWALSKIs – maybe, but Kozub? Take that with MCC31770 sierz.pchr.SZUBERLA, Jan 1913/416/III Now are we saying that we have 878 soldiers with the name Kozub and Szuberla. I don’t have an answer to this by the way, but the numbers must mean something else.

    Best regards, Mark Ostrowski

    Dear Panie Anrdzejku, Go on... you love the challenge! Your reward will be in heaven!!! May flights of angels... etc etc.
    Seriously, thank you very much. It is indeed very useful.
    One Brigade down... two divisions to go (but I'll leave you alone for a bit to recover).
    Much appreciated and with best regards, Mark
