I've been looking with interest on here for a while and so pleased that this thread it's still going strong!
I wonder if it would be possible to find out who the MC cross with number 15627 was awarded to?
Many thanks and great work!
May I be the first to welcome you to the Forum, with regards to you post requesting information on the Recipient of the MCC Numbered 15627, when awarded the recipients details were as follows:
Rank: St. Strzelec (Lance Corporal)
Christian Name: STANISLAW
Date of Birth: 1917
Army Number : (also found on His ID Tags) : 1917-35-III
Unit: 13BS (13th Rifle Battalion, 5th Kresowa Infantry Division, 2nd Polish Corps) .
The only other piece of information that I was able to glean from the internet was the death of a Stanislaw Ferenc in Glossop in Derbyshire on the 10th November 1957, Aged 40 (Death registered Glossop, Derbyshire Volume 10A, Page 961.). apart from the death there was Probate issued on the 16th January 1958.
Apologies for not being able to assist you further with your enquiry.
p.s. My bill is in the Post.
First of all, many thanks for such a quick and detailed reply! I've always been intrigued with this medal which was my grandfather's. Just in the process of trawling through the forums trying to identify a few other of his medals and beret eagle.
Thank you again and thanks for the welcome to the forum.
