    Just passing along an expression of gratitude from Jan Kon's daughter.
    Chris.....

    Here's what she sent:

    "Hi Andrzej,

    Thank you so much for the information for which I am grateful. My fathers path was a complex one and I wished I had listened more intently as a child! I have his medal but I think all documentation has unfortunately been destroyed. Once again, thank you.

    Kind Regards
    Rose Kon-Corbett"

    Hi Andrzej,

    Need your help again.
    Could you be so kind to share the information about the MCC # for LUTOKHIN ISAI AKIMOVICH (born in 1914)? I translated his name from russian so variants are possible. I guess he served in 5 KDP.
    Thank you in advance!

    Hello artee1986,

    A needle in a haystack, but here goes, I have found the following soldiers from 5KDP born in 1914:

    1) Marian Adrian

    2) Bronislaw Augustynowicz

    3) Ryszard Alwinger

    4) Franciszek Aksamit

    5) Ryszard Achtelik

    6) Jan Arzaniewicz

    7) Jan Adamski

    8) Franciszek Augustyn

    9) Jozef Adamowicz

    10) Wladyslaw Albin

    11) Aleksander Antonczyk

    12) Aleksander Alsilicz

    13) Karol Adamski

    14) Zygmunt Antczak

    Unfortunately I do not speak russian, so would not be able to help with the translation, perhaps one of the forums members might be able to translate any information that you have.

    best wishes

    Andrzej

    I asked my friend who knows polish to translate this name. The correct variant is:
    Lotuchin Isaj Akomowicz.
    The year of birth I found in his military ID issued by the Soviet authorities - so it could be incorrect.

    Hello artee1986,

    I have checked 3DSK also and looked through Polish soldiers killed in ww2 also with no joy, the MCC List has the following names:

    Kpr. Mieczyslaw AKIELAN

    Kpr. JAN AKIMOW

    Strzelec Jan AKONOM

    Kpr. Franciszek AKSAMIT

    Unless he enlisted under an assumed name ?

    Best wishes

    Andrzej

    Hm... very strange. He stayed alive and came back to USSR. I saw his pictures he has aurochs/bison (symbol of 5 KDP) on uniform.
    Assumed name? Interesting... but what for?
