Thank you very much. 

 

Is there anyone i can contact to find out recipient of the cross? 

There is a book, printed in Russian language of course, that lists the recipients of the George Crosses by serial number.  It's a bit hard to find and probably expensive.  But, some who own the book will help with names, units and dates if you find the thread on the right Russian militaria forum.  Oh, and a lot of the information is lost so don't expect too much.

But its nice to have a list for all those numbers

Yeah, I got the same unhappy notice on my two GC4s.  What date area did you end up with?  Just a wild guess; 1915/'16?  BTW, the 'Soviets' sent batches of serial numbered awards out to different units at different times and I think they followed what the Imperial Russians did.  So if you find your number close to a few others they might been in the same brigade or regiment (more doubtful) or in the same division or corps (more likely).

The Cross with the number 156202 was awarded on august 21 1916. Looks like there were a bigger battle / attack since they awarded a few st. George crosses that day in that area.
