    Hi Mark,



    Some great work there! Thanks for sharing this.

    On your Beret Unit Insignia page, the “Which Unit?” is the 10th Volhynian Hussar Regiment, attached to the 14 Wielkopolska Armoured Brigade.

    Was Wawrzyniec a relative of yours? I have him listed in my father's book as Sekuła. He died on the spot in action along with a whole bunch of other sappers, on the Polish Sappers Road.

    Page 3 in willow green Beret unit isnignia. A photo of an officer of the 10th Hussar Regiment. I have just noticed Tony's post so let me edit my post with information that the 7 Anti-Tank Artillery Regiment and the 11 Heavy Artillery Regiment badges are post-war veterans badges. So is the 10 Heavy Artillery badge below:

    Hello Elzunia Go,

    May I be the first to welcome you to the forum, and please accept my apologies for miss typing your Fathers MCC Number it has been corrected.

    I thought that I would also post a larger photograph of your Father and a photograph of his awards

    (click on the photographs to enlarge in a new window)

    I thought that I would point out a couple of mistakes on the Label describing your Fathers awards:

    1) The Desert Star is the Afica Star

    2) The Meritorious Service Cross is the Cross of Merit.

    Best wishes

    Andrzej

    Dear Ken,

    Whilst looking through the PISM Archives online have you already seen the following archives list:

    1) Papers of Individuals and of Exiled Organisations.

    2) List of Families with members serving in the Polish Armed Forces deported to the USSR (downloads as: SpisRodzin)

    3) Page 1206 you might find of interest.

    Best wishes

    Andrzejku

    Outside of this in the order of precedence for Polish medals the Monte Cassino Cross ranks behind the War Medal.

    Dear Andrzejku, I'm sure you are right about the photo of the trumpet playing soldier since you know the source you got it from, but I would have expected to see the lion badge on his beret... especially in profile. Just a thought.

    Best regards, Mark OSTRO
