This is the order issued in Vienna by the Ministry of Commerce on 27th March 1915, announcing that Abraham Margulies, post office and telegraph specialist from Bukovina, was awarded the Golden cross for valor by order of His Majesty, for his deed of saving the papers and equipment of the Czernowitz post office.

When World War I began, my father wasn't called up to the front. He remained at the post office. He wore the imperial outfit; he was an officer and was in charge of the Czernowitz post office. In 1915, when the Russians entered Romania, my father gathered all the papers, telegraph machines, and telephones, purchased horses and two large carts in which he loaded everything and carried the items deeper into the country, to Seletin, which the Russians hadn't occupied yet. For his deed, he was decreed by the Emperor of Austria-Hungary. The order read, 'Awarding, on 23rd March 1915, to Abraham Margulies from Czernowitz, post office and telegraph specialist, the Golden Cross for valor.' He also received a nice ribbon that read 'Franz Josef.'
