WW2 Polish Monte Cassino Cross Group to Medic.

An interesting Polish Group comprising of the Italy Star, 1939-45 war medal, the Monte Cassino Cross, numbered 42432, the Polish Cross of Valor 1943 issue and the Polish 30 PRL Anniversary medal with miniature pin; all mounted as worn on a brooch bar with other miniature pins.
The Monte Cassino cross numbered 42432 was awarded to 1916-1-11 Private Michal Luzny of the 1st Szpital Wojenny or the Polish 1st Military Hospital.
Michal Luzny was born in 1916 and saw action in Poland and Italy during the war. This group comes with three photographs which have been taken from an album and are believed to feature Michal in uniform, probably just as a new recruit just before war broke out in 1939.
After the war, Michal resided in London and worked as a railway labourer, he married his wife in Islington in 1952. He was granted full British citizenship on the 9th July 1963 and this appeared in the London Gazette on 27th August 1963. He remained in London for the rest of his life and sadly died in 1986.
A very interesting group of medals including the Monte Cassino Cross, this original medal is now becoming very scarce and sort after. All the medals are in very good condition with just a few slight contact marks. A scarce group to a Polish medic.

Super Rare Antique Air Pistol – the First Diana Model

This is a rare little beast, research shows two examples one in a museum collection the other for sale in this country at £450, the museum is able to provide a bit of information, this is a cast iron pistol which dates from the very earl part of the last century potentially into the Victorian era, cast into the decoration near the trigger are the initials MGR for the German company Mayer und Grammelspacher in Rastatt which is the original and correct full name for the ‘Diana’ company, the museum suggests that this could be the earliest version of the Diana pistol produced.
The good news is that it is in working condition, the compression is amazingly strong with a lot of power, the silver handle is pulled to prime the shot, the pellet is placed in the back of the barrel after unscrewing the other silver bit, the bad news is minimal, a replacement pin has been placed through the trigger mechanism, this shouts at you as its not black but that is do-able, given its age the body is in great condition, it may have been re-painted a very long time ago and some of the paint is missing in places. It measures 10 inches long.

British 1907 Patt Bayonet Made into WW1 Trench Knife.

WW1 Trench Knife made from a 1907 pattern British Short magazine Lee Enfield Bayonet. This was done during the great war and by the look of it, it saw a lot of action. There was a shortage of close combat fighting knives for the ordinary Tommy during the first world war, so they made all sorts of unique weapons to take on trench raids, when this type of weapon was called for. They made clubs, coshes, and all kinds of trench knives from what they could lay their hands on; this one was probably made from a broken bayonet, or from one picked up in the field. It forms quite a formidable fighting knife and it has been given a clipped and rounded tip. it also still retains its cross guard and muzzle ring and the push button catch on the pommel.
Condition is hard to describe, because this is an altered bayonet, but as it stands, it is in good order and a scarce original WW1 weapon.
It measures; 13.25 inches long.
