    Couple of questions I was hoping someone could give me a hand with: in my father's war record I received from the UK Ministry of Defence, it mentions a Polish Medal entitlement: "Honorary decoration for wounds". Any idea what this would be?
    Also he was awarded the Cross of Valour and two bars. No sign of the bars anywhere. Do Cross of Valour bars show up on auction sites from time to time? Happy New Year to all!!! Amazing site.

    Your father was wounded in combat and would have been issued this document which authorized the display of a wound badge. This ‘badge’ is essentially a ribbon segment in the colours of the Virtuti Militari with a star denoting the quantity of wounds sustained. It was displayed above the ribbon bar, as shown here:

    Yes they do, although not often found loose. When they are on the market it’s usually mounted to a ribbon/cross, and these always fetch a premium. And no surprise, lately reproductions have been making the rounds – such as these:

    According to the war record he was first wounded in action in the defence of Warszawa and again near Couvicourt during the Normandy campaign. Would the ribbon likely have had 2 stars?

    Hello,

    I'm looking to purchase a WW2 Wojtek 22nd Transport Company Badge. I have been searching for a while and I was hoping someone might here might have advice on where I could look to find one. Or if I'm very lucky if someone might have one they'd be willing to part with. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated as it's very important to me. I would also be interested in other Wojtek items if available.

    Thanks

    Hi Stepic, sorry – I overlooked this question. It’s a good one. If the wound during the defense of Warsaw was formally recorded, as you indicated it was, then yes he would display two stars.

    Hello Leila, and welcome to the forum,

    I don’t know of any for sale at the moment. They do pop up on the market every so often, so you’ll need to remain watchful. I’d recommend that you keep an eye on ebay, Allegro (“Polish ebay”), and some of the militaria sites such as emedals, and others. The DESA auction house in Krakow, Poland also has periodic badge auctions where one may be listed. It will take some diligent digging and patience, but your efforts should eventually yield results.

    Before buying anything please ask for good quality pictures and post here for opinions as to authenticity. The market is saturated with reproductions of Polish militaria, so caution is the name of the game.

    Best wishes,
    Tony
