    Default Mcc 4836

    Andrzejku,
    Would you be so kind to identify the cross no 4836?
    I purchased the cross with a PRL document to Stefan Urysz. I wonder if he is the owner of the cross. Is it possible this same soldier could fought at the Monte Cassino and later in the "liberation" of Poland in 1944/45?

    Hello Chris,

    Many thanks for your message I have looked through the register and could not find any TIEPUN awarded the MCC, so I therefore sorted it by date of birth and could find no PAWEL with the surname begining with T awarded the MCC, born in 1911.

    Apologies for not being able to help you further.

    Best wishes
