  1. I have images of Travin's Red Banner since 2010. Here they are...
  2. Thank you very much. This is what I am looking for. Unfortunately order number is not indicated in this card. This is an early type of award card. Some of them don't have award's number (like yours), but some do have it written on the second page like this... And by the way, General Travin did have another award card with all his awards listed except for this Kutuzov.
  3. Hello guys, I am trying to make a database on 2nd and 3rd class top orders (Suvorov, Kutuzov, Khmelnitsky). If anyone has award cards for any of those awards I can trade them with you. Sincerely, Andrew Kuznetsov
  4. Christian, my congratulations with those amazing documents. So, the truth finally came out. I'm really happy that former Soviet archives helped you to prove the authenticity of Gnitienko's full Glory set. Now even the most sceptical members of the forum should agree that this group is OK
  5. Excellent story, thanks. It's a very lucky event to find an early Red Star to a woman. However, she was in a rank of Major, not Jr. Lieutenant. For Jr. Lieutenant it would be "voyenfeldsher 3rd class" (военфельдшер 3-го ранга).
  6. During Chernobyl's disaster I lived in Kiev which is only 100 miles away from the nuclear power plant. I remember lots of interesting things happened that spring. For example all buses disappeared from Kiev for three days. As I found out later, they were used to evacuate the entire population of Chernobyl, Pripyat and other smaller towns around the power station. Later those buses returned to regular city lines after short deactivation procedures (just washed them with water).
  7. Normally, higher was the rank and position of the officer, more chances he has gotten to repair his damaged award. For example, this sophisticated repair was not possible in trench conditions.
  8. That is correct. However, sometimes our veterans overreact in their efforts to keep their awards bright and shiny for annual parades. They polished them heavily every year and the results vere pretty dramatic
  9. Nice order, my congratulations! Here are the scans of the same Glory as it was back in 2004.
  10. Oh yes, I've seen "The widowmaker" three years ago. It is a great movie with nice casting (Harrison Ford is very good) and everything looks real except some dialoges. Russians do not talk that way, that was little bit weird. But overall it is a "must see" movie. Sorry for off-topic.
  11. You are right, Christian. Gorbachev had received RBL # 88292 by the Decree from April 16, 1949 for harvesting 8853,14 centners (1 centner = 100 kilograms) during 20 working days. He was operating assistant on combine harvester "Stalinets-6".
