    With reference to my post numbered 562, in which I showed the Order Wojenny Virtuti Militari Legitymcaja awarded to Sierz. Jan Sowiński, I can now show it without the Virtuti Militari Cross covering the Legitymacja.

    Virtuti Militari Thread

    VM Legit Numbered 7781 awarded to Sierz. Jan Sowiński. (click to enlarge in a new window).

    And also a New Legitymacja and a couple of Faces of Recipients of the Order Wojenny Virtuti Militari Silver Cross :

    Hello Everyone,

    I came across the following today, which I thought that I would share with you all :

    Virtuti Militari Thread

    Virtuti Militari Thread

    Virtuti Militari Thread

    Virtuti Militari Thread

    Virtuti Militari Thread

    The Military ID Booklet belonged to Chor. Władysław Jan Sak, who as a Plut. serving in the Heavy machine Gun platoon of the 4PPLeg was awarded the Virtuti Militari Cross Numbered : 6287, in the Professor Wesolowski Register he his listed as Plut. Jan Sak, hence the possible mistake and it might explain why he did not receive his Cross until 1937.

    The photograph of Władysław Jan Sak shows him wearing the KN, BKZ, 1918-1921 War Commemorative Medal and the 10th Anniversary of Independence Medal, so that would date the photograph between 1930-1932.

    Władysław Jan Sak was born on the 21st December 1896 in Tarnowie and after serving in the Army during WW2 his service Number was : 1896-110-III, Unit : 14BS, 5KDP, Monte Cassino Cross Numbered : 16712.
