    Hi Adrian,

    A very nice Cross of Valour made in the Middle East (1944-1945) on original issue ribbon.
    Get a copy of Grzegorz Krogulec's Krzyż Walecznych. The best reference on the Polish Cross of Valour available. It will help you a lot.

    The other Exile Cross of Valour was good but the ribbon was a modern replacement.

    Best,
    Kosa
    Thank you Kosa. Today I will get a book by G. Krogulec. I searched for a long time and bought it last week. I think it will solve a lot of my doubts Regards Adrian.

    Hi. Recently I have become the owner of this cross of valor, I am posting photos. In my opinion, this is the original cross of Albin Różycki, the second variant with a date, but please confirm it. I don't like the ribbon and the circle. In my opinion, the period of the Polish People's Republic. Regards Adrian.

    Hello Everyone,

    I found the following yesterday whilst surfing:

    Virtuti Militari Thread

    Virtuti Militari Silver Cross obverse

    Virtuti Militari Thread

    Virtuti Militari Silver Cross reverse numbered: 2852

    When awarded the recipients details were as follows:

    Rank: Podporucznik (2nd Lieutenant)

    Surname: Peto

    Christian Name: Feliks Wincenty

    Date of Birth: 4th April 1898

    In the Rocznik Oficerski 1923 (Officers Yearbook 1923) he was listed has a Reservist with the VIII Dyon Samochodowy, but during the wars of 1918-1921 he was serving in the Wielkopolksi Army in their Armoured Car unit.

    In the 1934 Reserve Officers Yearbook he had been promoted to Porucznik on the 2nd January 1932 and was 4th in seniority, in 1934 he was listed has living in Grudziądz, he died in Poland in 1984.

    p.s. interestingly Professor Wesolowski Register of the Virtuti Militari spelt his surname as Petko, whilst Dr. Andrzej Suchcitz Register listed the correct spelling.

    Best wishes

    Hello Adrian,

    Many thanks for your post's you are correct in saying that the suspension ring of the cross is a later replacement has is the ribbon, further than that although I have a few numbered Crosses of Valour it is not my particular forte of interest hopefully one of the other Forum members will be able to answer your question.

    Best wishes
