    Default POWN - Polska Organizacja Walki o Niepodległość

    Hi Gentlemen,



    let me show this nice grouping of two awards and beloning documents. POWN = Polska Organizacja Walki o Niepodległość was only 2-3 times mentioned on our forum, but without details or pictures. This Organization, actig in Northern France, Belgium and Netherlands, is not well known in Poland also, the informations in Wiki are very short: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polska...2o%C5%9B%C4%87

    Here you can see the POWN cross, awarded 1944 to a Belgian citizien, together with diploma and POWN member card.

    ... and the second award for the same person is Merit Cross in Silver = Srebrny Krzyż Zasługi, awarded in June 1945 by London Governement. The document is with hand signature of Prime Minister Tomasz Arciszewski. The cross was manufactured by Spink & Son Ltd, cased and with a nice minianture.

    regards
    Tomasz
