Does anyone speak czech?

Recommended Posts

Hello gentlemen

I spotted a document for the medal in the order of the white lion (dated 1927). What I can make of the recipients name is (I think):

strelei franc legii KASTANSZOVI.

I guess that has something to do with the French Legion, (franc legii) but what does it actually mean?

Thanks for the help

Best regars

It shuld be "strelci franc legii KASTANSZOVI" - to rifleman of French legion Kastansz.

Thank you

I was under the impression that the order of the white lion in that period was only awarded to foreigners? :unsure:

The name sounds Polish for me. So I thought it should be Polish member of foreign legion in WWI?
