    Helldude, so sorry to hear that your Great Grandfather lost his life over there. Your family must be very proud of him though. Have you had an opportunity to visit his grave in Italy by any chance? Thanks for posting the photo.
    Not yet but i hope soon

    Is anyone on the forum an owner of the Monte Cassino Cross no 17839? I am aware it is like looking for a needle...but I think it is always worth to try. Thank you

    Army Number: (also found on his ID Tags): 1905-233-III

    Thank you Andrzejku. Not totally honest on the seller site, isn't it?
    Knowing the cross was not awarded to an officer he chose to keep it to himself. As we know officer's crosses are more rare and bring more money. I guess the buyer who payed 200 GBP was hoping it was officer too.
    Once again, thank you for the info.
    Best regards,

    Hello,
    I have jest found this web page - and I am amazed. Thank you! I have a question. I have found in this post a photo of kapral Bronisław Ledochowicz. Are you able to tell anything more about this kapral? He has the same name as my paternal grandfather, and reminds him a lot in looks. However, I know close to nothing about him. He died when i was small child, in 1971. I would very much appreciate any information.
    Many thanks, and thanks again for creating such wonderful site, Ewa
