    That middle number again!
    Sometimes it just takes one tiny piece of information to let things fall into place. I wrote the other day that my granddad’s Army Number in his AB64 was: 35/0/1909/III and I had no idea what the 0 meant. I was looking through some scans of other AB64s and saw a 26/G... which got me thinking – perhaps it wasn’t an 0 (zero) but an O (the letter). I think I’ve found the answer to the Army Number question... Franciszek Ostrowski was the 35th soldier to be recorded at KU3 with a surname starting in O who was born in 1909. The same unit by coincidence had another Franciszek Ostrowski who was born in 1901. He was the 5th “O” born in that year to be recorded as he is 1901/5/III. I may be wrong, but if there are two soldiers with surnames beginning with the same letter, born in the same year and with the same middle number I will be very surprised. As a system it works well. You could write about a soldier without using his name: 151 S 1905.
    Best regards, Ostro

    Panie Andzrejku,

    Just as an example of the kind of queries I get, a gentlemen has contacted me about his grandfather and great uncle. He has a cross – he should have two, but he would like to know to whom does the cross he have belong. And what is the number of his lost cross and what unit it was from. I quote:
    ...Further to our correspondence yesterday the number on the Monte Cassino Cross belonging to either my grandfather (Jan Kubinski) or his brother (Andrzej Kubinski) is 20213. I would love to hear anything that you can tell me about it.
    Any information you can supply would be greatly appreciated. Beyond the fact that the unit concerned is the 4 PAL (Light Artillery Regiment)of the 5KDP I have reached my limit of information. Would there be any chance of tracing the number/unit of the missing Cross for him. We try to help in any way we can so for whatever you can do, thank you in advance.

    Best regards, Mark OSTRO

    Hello Mark,

    With regards to your request for information on the KUBINSKI Brothers, please find the following information on them:

    1) Kapral Andrzej KUBINSKI, Born: 1909, Army Number (also found on his ID Tags): 1909-265-III, Unit: 4PAL awarded MCC Nr: 201213

    2) Strzelec (Rifleman) Jan KUBINSKI, Born: 1903, Army Number (also found on his ID Tags): 1903-141-III, Unit: 15th Rifle Battalion, 5KDP, awarded MCC Nr: 17256.

    They both survived the war, as there is no records of their deaths whilst serving, I have also checked the Index of Victims of Soviet Repression also with no luck.

    I hope that the above information is of some use and help.

    Best wishes
