    Default Wing Commander Marian Kucharski's medal: RAF Museum exhibit

    Hi Guys, I took these pics a few years ago when I was down at the RAF Museum, Hendon, London.

    I thought you might like to see them.

    You can also educate me on what they all are! I only really know the British ones and the VM.

    Cheers, Ade.

    2nd one in is the Cross of Valour with three bars.
    3rd is the Polish Airforce war service medal.
    The other medals look possibly French ?.

    Thanks Guys.

    Usually at museums the awards on display will be the originals. Except in cases of the Victoria Cross; these are not usually on display, being kept in a safe, so these are usually replicas on public show.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The first medal on the left is the Viatuti Militari the Polish version of the VC. My father was also awarded this by the Polish Government (London), whike he served in the PAF.
