Second World War Medals


  One. Memorial Cross (GV). Named to H.63618 Pte. E.J. PRYGROSKI. Emil John Prygroski enlisted as a Craftsman in the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers at Winnipeg, Manitoba on 5 May 1941. His parents were farmers living in Stuartburn, Manitoba, and he was married during his service. He served with #1 CBW RCEME in the UK, earning the British War Medal and the Canadian Volunteer Service medal with clasp (these are not with the cross). Service record indicates issue of Memorial Crosses to his mother and widow in 1950, but his file contains no indication of the cause of his death. Online research indicates that his mother, Anna Zuk, was chosen as the 1998 National Memorial Silver Cross Mother, and laid a wreath on Remembrance Day on behalf of all mothers who had lost a child to military service. The Veterans Affairs Canada website suggests that Emil Prygroski died in 1950 at the Montreal Military Hospital of injuries sustained during the 19 August 1942 raid on Dieppe, but his service record suggests that he was in Canada at the time of the raid. Paper copy of service record from LAC included. Cross on original ribbon in box of issue
