  1. Hello! What is the number, 288867 ? Can't clearly see it.... If so, then it is likely was issue on the 1 Belorussian front at the end of the war in Europe. For research, I can recommend my self. 😄 BTW, I just opened my site last week: ResearchSovietOrders.com I also added database feature to my site. Currently, you can search some info for free, and some info you can request. But later, the database will be expanded for possibility to add any number for being added to searching (f.ex. to reunite a group, f.ex.).
  2. Any news on researching these items? I am especially curious about the OGIII.
  3. Hello Andrew, I have the following numbers, all of which are documented either with a register card or a handout protocol (mostly with protocols). I am sure you have already many of these, but here it goes. Maybe we could exchange some info. ================ Khmelnitsky 2: 297 ; 508 ; 537 ; 589 ; 590 ; 593 ; 744 ; 956 ; 957 ; 958 ; 966 ; 971 ; 972 ; 978 ; 979 ; 985 ; 1023 ; 1150 ; 1470 ; Khmelnitsky 3: 260 ; 290 ; 312 ; 386 ; 508 ; 684 ; 980 ; 999 ; 1260 ; 1306 ; 1307 ; 1364 ; 1411 ; 1412 ; 1413 ; 1415 ; 1435 ; 1451 ; 1453 ; 1466 ; 1469 ; 1474 ; 1495 ; 1496 ; 1497 ; 2010 ; 2
  4. I want to share my present reality... I discovered an OGII awarded to the full cavalier. But the post service lost it... So my present day reality bites.
  5. For the St. george cross the name is, unfortunately, not identifiable.
  6. This is an innocent looking letter. One of many, right? Not quite! First of all, not often one sees a man whose first name is Achilles (Ахилл) like the Greek hero, right? OK, this alone makes my mental alarm beep. But there is more. Much more. Apparently, STALIN made an example of this man and named the guy specifically in one of his decrees in October 1941. But first, the letter, which was written on 01 April 1944 to the wife. The author is Commissar BANKWITZER Achilles L'vovich (1892-1970). "Dear Allya, It is all the same here. I am very worried due to lack of news from
  7. SUKHETSKIY Petr Romanovich, 1926. A pontoon layer of the 108 separate pontoon battalion, 18 motorised engineer brigade, 2 Guards tank army. He received a Bravery medal for the battle of Berlin after 16 April for constructing the pontoon bridge across Spandauer Schifffahrtskanal and passing 27 tanks to the other bank, while under enemy fire.
  8. It just takes 10 years, right? But here is something to cheer up a fellow phalerist! Here is the Red Star awarded to aerial gunner TSIRULNIKOV, who flew multiple mission with the pilot SHCHUKIN from 766ShAP! F.ex. here (see image) they flew the mission on 21 Feb 1945 against the enemy concentration at Groß Blumenau (today Kremnevo) near Koenigsberg. Two interesting airforce related awards! Imagine these were once flown on the same airplane ! These are the photos of aerial gunners training at 766ShAP. And here is the regiment commander pilot HSU ERMILOV
  9. Thank you for sharing!!!! Great! Nice citation. Here is the map of KLYUCHNIKOV's separate AA artillery squadron in 1943 about the time mentioned in the citation.
  10. That is to punish the ones who aren't wishing to open their eyes to the light from the torch of knowledge. 😅
  11. If you hold a torch of knowledge, let others light their candles from it... You can find the torch of knowledge on this medal. 😂
  12. Inscription: I present this photo card to dear Klavusya for good memory of my little sister Liza. Devoted to you Mishunya. Signature 28 June 1915 village Ryshkovka. Klavusya = Klavdiya ; Mishunya = Mikhail
  13. pupils of a children's column = inmates of the juvenile detention center
  14. Hello, But is not the tracking number recorded in eBay system after you post?
  15. Hey Erik! Welcome back! Nicely done with research!
  16. I am afraid your suspicion is well founded... You should always be very careful and cautious about the awards appearing last in the award booklet. In these case I see different handwriting for both order of Glory entries. Plus online check shows only Red Star for this female veteran. Could you show the reverses of the Glory orders in good resolution?
  17. Hello Paul! I just got a Bravery medal for a man from 79 blocking detachment (Magnuszew bridgehead). But his SECOND Bravery medal from July 1945 is "for removal of AK officers and their weapons". He is information on his FIRST medal, which I have.
  18. Very interesting! Nice citation. Thank you for sharing!!!
  19. Thank you! I am glad for it too. Always interesting when different layers emerge during research.
  20. OAN 37671 to captain FILIN, head of Intelligence of the 747 rifle regiment. Thank you Matthijs Jansen for the great badge! Captain FILIN Georgy Mitrofanovich, 1918-1962. Chief of Staff assistant for Intelligence of 747 Guards rifle regiment (172 rifle division, 13 army, 1 Ukrainian Front). Awarded OAN in May 1945 for the operation to capture a prisoner, held 06 April 1945 in near the town of Steinbach. Before that, the veteran had a rich combat life: he was in a pocket several times and was a partisan. Then back to the front scout. A native of the village of Krugl
  21. These are issued by NGOs. I even believe, anyone can buy them for himself. Can be purchased here from the manufacturer: http://www.vto-orden.com.ua/ru/catalog/award/znak-narodnoyi-poshani-geroj-chornobilya3
  22. I am quite sure these are not postal stamps. These were used to mark that the membership fee has been payed. Like a receipt.
