    Hello Andrzej and Everyone,

    Last Saturday I was at the Parish Cemetery in Miedzna, Węgrów district where I found a grave of the November Uprising veteran Michał Jasiński, born 1806, died 12th August 1876.

    As it states on his gravestone he was a Recipient of the Order of Virtuti Militari for participating in the charge at Dębe Wielkie in 1831. I also found in the database of the Central Military Archives name of Private Michał Jasiński as a Recipient of the Virtuti Militari, but unfortunately without given a date of his birth, to verify if this is the same soldier.

    Virtuti Militari Thread

    Could you be so kind and check in the literature, if he is listed in the Wesołowski or Łukomski, Polak, Suchcitz books or other books with the Virtuti Militari List, as the VM Recipient, please? Maybe there are other details like his date of birth and so on.

    Thank you in advance.

    Regards
    Konrad

    Hello Konrad,

    Many thanks for your post, unfortunately the Registers of the Virtuti Militari do not list the Date of Birth, from Wesolowski's Book St. Wachm. Michał Jasiński was awarded the silver cross whilst serving in the 10PUL on the 26th September 1831.

    That is all the information that I was able to glean for you Konrad

    Best wishes

    Hi everyone. I have 3 Virtuti militari. Two of them are pre-war products made of silver. Jan Knedler's products. The third is a mystery to me. In my opinion, it is a product of Jan Knedler, but post-war. Maybe the 1950s. The cross is engraved with the number 126-44. I searched for a long time and it seems to me that it is the Virtuti militari of General Wacław Jacyna, who he received for the Battle of Monte Cassino. What do you think about this Virtuti militari?

    I have a huge request. Please identify this Virtuti militari. Is it a post-war copy? The metal resembles silver. Regards Adrian

    Hello Adrian, I agree that this is a post war made cross. As to having been owned by Wacław Jacyna, provenance is key. Without any solid verifiable connection to Jacyna this story will be tough to sell. My first question is why would he have a cross made in Poland after 1945 when he did not return to Poland and settled in Argentina?

    Post war copy IMO. The patina does suggest silver, or silver plate. Looks to be a Panasiuk product.

    Hi. Thank you for valuable information. As for Jacyne, I have similar feelings. Perhaps it is only the similarity of numbers. Jacyny's Virtuti militari is number 126/44. Here we have the number 126-44. The engraving looks old and old fashioned. Have you encountered the engraving of numbers on Virtuti militari? I also think that Virtuti militari was not produced for everyone. And if it is a post-war follower, it must have belonged to someone. Regards Adrian
