    Hello Chris,

    I have looked through the Regiments Photographic Album from the 1970's the only photograph connected with the crew is of their Tank, which became the 4PPanc Memorial.

    The only other information that I came across is as follows:

    Por sp. Ludomir Bialecki awarded the Silver Cross Virtuti Militari Nr: 10087

    Plutowny sp. Edward Ambrozej awarded KW

    Kapral sp. Eugeniusz Bogdajewicz awarded KW

    Kapral sp. Boleslaw Karczewicz awarded KW

    Plutowny sp. Jozef Jan Nickowski awarded KW

    I will keep looking and will post anything else that I find.

    Best wishes

    Hey Andrzej

    Coincidentally enough that image is from my uncle's personal photo album, he was a mechanic in the regiment attached to No. 3 Squadron in its repair section and likely knew Bialecki and his crew quite well. His name was Michal Krzywoszanski. Picture was taken at San Vittore del Lazio in late May early April 1944. Image was posted to an Italian website a few years back, the fellow who ran the site later gave me a great tour of the battlefield and Monte Cassino.

    Chris.....
