    Deaer Andrzejku,
    Again, many thanks for the Engineers and the Supply and Transport lists. Very useful as ever.

    Dear Forum,

    To mark the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Monte Cassino I am proud to present the Monte Cassino Cross Unit Recipient list. This is probably the most complete list available online of which units were awarded the crosses, and their respective numbers. Although this is still a "work-in-progress", with the exception of 2 Corps Signals and a few of the smaller units, the list is complete Ė certainly for units above Company size.

    This information was brought to you courtesy of Andrzej and The Polish Institute and General Sikorski Museum. It was compiled, and some additional material was added, by Dr. Mark Ostrowski

    I have to give my public thanks to Andrzejku without whom this would not have been possible... or at least it would have have taken a very long long time!!!

    Best regards, Mark Ostrowski.

    ...and before anyone starts to pick fault - it IS a work in progress. There are a few anomalies and omissions, but I hope to sort them out in due course. As I have said previously, itís not perfect, but itís a startÖ and itís the best thatís going!
