My only Soviet related photograph.
Yugoslav and Soviet officer smoking cigarettes, most likely in Yugoslavia and my guess is at least late 1944. The photo isn't sharp enough to see the rank of the Soviet officer but he's definately a senior officer judging by the two parallel stripes on his epaulettes.
Sadly, there's nothing written on the back.
Very nice. The Brotbeutel is marked B.D. III, which was the Bekleidungsdepot for the Bavarian III Armee Korps. Sunce most had Bekleidungsamt, this is unique just to one Bavarian supply chain. The 301 is a code for a Hersteller, but nobody has found the master list.
As the topic says, I'm writing an article on the Schaumburg-Lippe Kreuz für Treue Dienste. Not a bad way to keep myself busy while this Corona mess in ongoing.. 🙃 The text is pretty much done and all I need now are some images on the 1870 and 1914 crosses, singles and in medal-bars, minis (I've already got some nice ribbonbar photos from Daniel) and of people wearing them. For printing quality, 300 DPI resolution is the minimum.
Seeing how rare the 1870 crosses are, any photos or even a nudge toward some photos would be greatly appreciated!
Any photos you share with me for the article you will naturally be credited and you will get an electronic copy of the article once it's published. The venue is not yet certain, it will be either be the "Finnish Soldier" magazine (there's a tenuous link to Finland via the Ostsee-division) or the Journal of the Finnish Numismatic Association.
Thanks in advance!
