wow ! thank you I never expected so much information.
The cross came with a Polish war medal and enamel type medal ribbon bar which has a purple and white striped ribbon, which I presume is another award ? the monte cassino cross 39-45 star, italy star defence and war medals a 5 infantry breast type badge and a smaller 5 th infantry diamond shaped badge and some cloth polish eagles and shoulder titles i wil take a photo and post it.
Thanks again for this fantastic information and I hope I can find some more information out about this brave soldier . I purchased the goup in Devon England so it must be him.
Again thanks for the quick and great information
