    Tony, many thanks for the information. I had never seen the other insignia before nor have I seen the wound bar. I was aware that Odznaki was a certification of wounding but I had not seen the ribbon bar in my Dad's stuff. I also suspected that the Cross of Valour was placed backside up. Thanks for confirming this. I will take the display down to Gatineau where I had it done to correct these mistakes.

    Hi all
    I'm still attempting to locate my typed thesis on Katyn. I have found my handwritten draft but it is yellowed with age, much like myself. I shall keep looking for it.

    Hello L B Karniewicz,

    May I be the first to welcome you to the forum, would I be right in thinking that Albert was born in 1921 and died in 1995 in Devon, the only Albert Karniewicz that I could find listed who was born in 1921 was as follows:

    Rank: Strzelec (Rifleman)

    Surname: KARNIEWICZ

    Christian Name: Albert

    Date of Birth: 1921

    Army Number also found on his ID Tags (worn aroung the neck): 1921/274/III

    Was awarded the Monte Cassino Cross Numbered: 28488

    The Unit Albert was in was the z 6 Kompanii Warsztatowej, 5 Kresowa Dywizja Piechoty , 2 Polski Korpusu (translation: 6th Workshop Company, 5th Frontier Infantry Division, 2nd Polish Corps).

    I hope that the above information is of some use and help, a veritable needle in a Haystack.

    Best wishes

    Hello Lewis,

    Welcome to the forum. Happy to see that Andrzejku was able to fill in some blanks for you. I’ll take a wild guess that you might be related to Albert Karniewicz. Please feel free to tell us more about this veteran.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Sharp eye Andrzejku!

    Well, if we’ve found another cross amongst the collector’s of members here then lighting has struck twice in the past couple of days. See post #135 here:

    Monte Cassino cross

    Once again. hope that we see a reunion of these items.
