Anything on the MCC no 624?
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
Sorry for the late reply, the recipient of the Monte Cassino Cross Numbered: 624 was as follows:
Rank: Plutowmy (Lance Sergeant)
Christian Name: Feliks
Date of Birth: 1905
Army Number: (also found on his ID Tags): 1905-233-III
Unit: 2nd Corps Headquarters Staff.
I had informed the seller who it had been awarded to, but he choose not too update the ebay site, keeping it as may be an officer
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.
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
