  3. That's great news Greg, did they indicate if it was possible to reserve / pre-order copies?. Beats me why they don't just publish the list in pdf on their website along with the other documents available there.
  4. Ah yes, the mythical (or maybe not) Monte Cassino list. Some say partial lists exist, others that the list exists in the archives of the Sikorski Institute in London. From time to time when these crosses are listed on eBay a user called "Andrzejku" pops up and provides details of the recipient. If contacted to supply details of his sources he never responds. The mystery continues………
  5. Hi Nancy, You might try the Essex Regiment museum. The address is as follows: Essex Regiment Museum Oaklands Park, Moulsham Street, Chelmsford, Essex, CM2 9AQ Tel: 01245 605700 http://www.armymuseums.org.uk/museums/0000000031-Essex-Regiment-Museum.htm Regards Kris
  6. Hi Sam, The name Piotr Bartys is not listed on the "Roll of Honour" or the Polish War Memorial at Northolt. Can you confirm that he was KIA or died in an accident during the period 1940 - 47? If not can you provide any details of his service ie: squadron, rank etc. and I'll try to find out further info for you. If you prefer to pursue your own enquiries the following three addresses should prove useful: Ministry of Defense CS (RM) 2c Bourne Avenue Hayes Middlesex UB3 1RF England (Records of all Polish servicemen in the UK during the war) The Sikorski Institute 20 Princes Gate London SW7 APC Polish Enquiries RAF Northholt Building 28B Westend Road Ruislip Middlesex HA4 6NG 0208 8338603 (Records of all Polish airmen in the UK during the war) Regards Kris
  7. Hi Kristof The "Roll of Honour" only lists those KIA and their service details as described in my initial post. Decorations are listed but not their actual citations. W/O Bargielowski is not listed on the roll, this would indicate that either he was not KIA or that his name is omitted. Regards Kris
  8. Hi Pete, Post 10 - Field Military Police, Type I. = 1916 - 1921 Regards Kris
  9. Hi Pete, Nice collection of badges. Post 1 - 2nd Rifle Division 1940 - 1945. Post 2 - Polish 2nd Corps Reserve Artillery Warrant Officers School. Post 10 - Field Military Police, Type I. Post 12 - Podholanian Rifle Battalion 1946 Regards Kris
  10. Polish Parachute badge VALUATION please

    Hi Steve, Prof Wesolowski (http://www.polishmilitaria.com) has three badges of this period at $500 each. Regards Kris
  11. Polish Parachute badge VALUATION please

    Hi, The Legitymacja indicates that flight sergant Aldridge was awarded the plain parachutist badge, the blank side opposite is for the award of the combat parachutist badge. Regards Kris
  12. Hi Micha, Apology accepted. Regarding the book - German Medal Makers and Their Marks 1813 - 1957, as a novice Imperial Germany collector, in an effort to improve my knowledge I purchased this book some time ago. I feel it would be helpful to myself and others trying to improve their knowledge if you would consider posting a detailed critique of the book. Regards Kris
  13. Hi Christophe, My references indicate that the two marks refer to seperate locations - "KO" = Berlin, KMST = Stuttgart. Regards Kris
  14. Hi Deruelle, Can you clarify, I understood that "KO" = Königliches Münzamt Orden, Berlin and K.M.S.T. = Königliche Muenzamt Stuttgart ? Regards Kris
  15. You are quite right, it is marked "KO". I was mistaken, not everybody is blessed with 20/20 vision!! With regard to "KO" being unknown - not according to this post on the http://www.kaisersbu..._EK1_makers.htm & other sources. No I am not "Papsack" whoever he is and no I have not published a book. In conclusion, I found the tone of your response offensive and ungentlemanly. It should be possible to point out an error without descending into a vitriolic rant. Regards Kris
