    Mr. P.Z. is correct, although the "odznaka za rany" (wound badge) for this soldier would have a star denoting a single wound. This is marked on the award document. Additional stars were added for additional combat wounds suffered.

    I see that there are two wound badges with the group, so that makes sense. Thank you gentleman, I'm sure I have a few more documents that need interpretation, I will give it a break for a few days. Again, you guys are super, never expected all this, you are too kind...

    Hello Jared,

    The 2nd document is for the award of the Army Medal (1939-1945), interesting thing is that the award was made to Franciszek Siwicki whilst serving in the 20th Engineers Battalion as a Saper (Engineer)

    Best wishes

    Hi Jared,

    The first document confirm the awarding of two British campaign stars - 1939-45 star and the Italy star.
    The second is a confirmation of completion of service and fulfillment of contract with the Polish Resettlement Corps.
    The third is another confirmation of the award of the Cross of Valour.

    And lastly, the group of four documents with correct orientation, and slight colour correction to enhance visibility:

    The group came with a large photo album with numerous photos, many military. The first is of Kasmericz , I believe the photo with three men is that of Kaz and his brother , and the third man in the middle not identified. It is not labeled but there are many variations of these two in photos. The third photo is of Kaz and unidentified soldier.
