    Only a guess but 7 must surely be Strz. Bolesław Jeliński - born 1926 and the youngest man in the group. I wonder what year the photo was taken?

    Hello Gentlemen,

    I found a photo of ppor. Franciszek Niedziółka:

    Monte Cassino cross

    Ppor. Franciszek Niedziółka

    I'm betting number 3 in the above photo (although there is no star on his epaulets), so then nr 2 must be ppor. Jerzy Rogaczewski.

    Regards
    Konrad
