    Hello Chris,

    Many thanks for your post with regards to the Recipient of the Monte Cassino Cross Numbered 45263 at the time of the award His details were as follows:

    Rank ; Sierzant (Sergeant)

    Surname : PRZENICZNY

    Christian Name : Stanisław

    Date of Birth : 1910

    Army Number : (also found on His ID Tags) : 1910-84-III

    Unit : 29 Kompania Samoch ( 29th Ambulance Company)

    I have also been able to glean the following information from the internet :

    1) London Gazette Issue Nr : 42136, Page : 6105, Published on the 6th September 1960, Przeniczny Stanisław, Poland, Driller (Iron Ore Mine), 6 St. Lawrence Place, Ashby, Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, 15th July 1960. (British Citizenship granted).

    2) Stanislaw Wojciech Przeniczny Born : 23rd March 1910 died in October 1987 aged 77, death Registered in Scunthorpe and Barton-Upon-Humber, Lincolnshire, Volume 7, Page 1181.

    3) After searching the index of victims of soviet repression for Przeniczny with no luck I searched with just his Christian Name and date of birth and found the following listed under PSZENICZNY

    Pszeniczny Stanisław, Son of Wojciech, Born 1910, Arrested by the NKVD on the 17th September 1939 at Skierczyniec and joined the Anders Army at Tatiszczewo on the 3rd September 1941. These records show that he was either a pre war Regular or a Reservist.

    That is all that I could find for you Chris,

    I sincerely hope that it is of some use and help to you.

    Best wishes

    Andrzej

    p,s, My bill is in the post

    *I am researching two Monte Cassino veterans who also served in the 11th Signals Battalion. My stepfather's father (Cpl Wladyslaw Rittaler) and my stepfather's maternal grandfather or uncle (st.szer Joseph Puk). We are unsure of which familial relation as she never spoke of him, and my dad doesn't remember him. We do know that Puk is her maiden name, and on an occaision when I was home on leave from my time in the army, Walter told me about how he met his wife. They were in England after the end of the war, one of his mates asked him to go to the airport and meet his daughter as he was on duty. Walter met her plane and they were together until he passed in 1996. She still refuses to speak of her father, or anything from the war years. I remember Walter being very proud of his army days. He had all of his medals framed on his wall. Although they have gone missing since he passed. I made some photos of his photos back in the 1980's. When I find them, I hope they will give me some more clues. If anyone can steer me in the right direction to find out more, I welcome the help. ~scott*

    Hello Scott,

    May I be the first to welcome you to the Forum, I have been able to find the following information for you both were awarded the Monte Cassino Cross their details are as follows when awarded :

    1) Wladyslaw RITTALER

    Rank : Kapral (Corporal)

    Date of Birth : 1912

    Army Number : (also found on His ID Tags ) : 1912-65-III

    MCC Nr : 40867

    Unit : 11 Baon Lacznosci (11th Signals Battalion, 2 Polish Corps).

    2) JOZEF PUK

    Rank : Szeregowy (Private)

    Army Number : (also found on His ID Tags) : 1902-85-III

    After the end of the war Wladyslaw came to the UK and married Maria Puk in Northwich, Cheshire in 1st Quarter of 1948 (Volume 10a, Page 997)

    Scott, would I also be correct in saying that Jozef Puk came to the UK and married Maria Golenia in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, in the 3rd Quarter of 1958 (Volume 3b, Page 1807).

    Jozef Puk died in 1963 in Peterborough, Huntingdonshire, 4th Quarter of 1963 aged 60. (Volume 3b, Page 601).

    I apologize for the double post. Not sure how I did that. I have found the copies of Walter's photos. There are images of Walter, Joseph, Gen Sikorski, Gen Anders, and a few group shots. In one Walter is on a motorcycle coming at the camera, with a soldier on the back, and another pair right alongside him. One is in front of the sphinx. I will try to get them scanned, and posted.
