    Hello Szymon,

    Many thanks for your post :

    When awarded the Monte Cassino Cross the recipients details were as follows :

    Monte Cassino cross

    Rank : Ppor. (2nd Lieutenant)

    Surname : Kaczyński

    Christian Name : Kazimierz

    Date of Birth : 1907

    Szymon can I assume that the Crosses were all purchased in Poland if not and the Cross numbered : 2294 was purchased in the UK, then I have the following information gleaned from the internet.

    Monte Cassino cross

    Jan Bzdęga Born 7th June 1911, Died in Manchester on the 3rd March 1997.

    He was the only one that I was able to find out of the three recipients.
