  3. Is there no limit to your talent... Marvelous pieces!!
  4. Still nada... So many were made. And the way they were bestowed at first, there was no way to regain control.
  5. New MVD of Russia medal: Medal "For strengthening international police cooperation" Established on 20 April 2017 by ministerial order 220. Awarded to employees of law enforcement agencies, federal state civil servants, employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia and, in some cases other persons, for significant contribution to strengthening and developing cooperation with law enforcement agencies of foreign states and International organizations.
  6. And now... Jubilee Medal "25 Years of the Federal Agency for the Safe Storage and Destruction of Chemical Weapons". Est. 2017-05-10 Order № 111. Not the most attractive thing I've seen...
  7. A new medal established by popular demand and approved by minister Shoigu in November 2016. Medal "Veteran of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation" Est. 2016-11-24 order № 770. Awarded for many years of honest service in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation if previously awarded state awards of the Russian Federation (or of the USSR), or awarded the Russian Federation Presidential Certificate of Honour or of Gratitude, or if awarded two or more Defence Ministry of the Russian Federation departmental decorations, and having served with no disciplinary problems for 25 years or more in calendar years at the time of retirement from the military. It is here with its Soviet predecessor and the Soviet medal for veteran of labour. I find it odd the ribbon chosen is more similar to the the Soviet civilian than the military medal.
  8. Great precision work! Love Klink and Schultz!
  9. Nah... Today's copy of правда will do...
  10. I posted the order of precedence for medals earlier in another post, anything new, unless specifically mentioned in its establishment order, goes at the end of the line. As for these breast badges, they go below state awards worn in a similar fashion in the order of establishement as per medals. Since these are mostly bestowed to NCOs and junior officers, thet don't have to shuffle much out of the way unlike their generals...
  11. The Russian Defense Ministry continues to issue awards quite specific to branches and specialities. These are for Electronic Warfare Troops: Medal "For Service in Electronic Warfare Troops" Awarded to military personnel of all ranks of the Electronic Warfare Troops of the Russian Federation with at least 5 years of service, for valour, ingenuity and courage displayed during service, for excellent performance of duties. May also be awarded to citizens of the Russian Federation, whose actions helped in the development and establishment of the Electronic Warfare Troops of the Russian Federation. Decoration "For Merit" of Electronic Warfare Troops awarded to officers and warrant officers. Decoration "For Distinction" of Electronic Warfare Troops awarded to soldiers, sergeants and master sergeants.
  12. Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations (EMERCOM). Medal "Participant in emergency humanitarian operations". Established on 27 December 1995 by ministerial order 885. Awarded to individuals or organisations for their involvement in humanitarian relief operations and contributions to the organization of such future actions as well as for dedication and courage. The medal is also awarded with English text in lieu of Russian. This is the only medal of this ministry NOT on a pentagonal mount, probably because it is awarded to so many foreigners. No idea why they slapped "UN" on it... Not mentioned in any of the texts.
  13. "Honoured Fellow of the Federal Courier Service of the Russian Federation" («Почетный Сотрудник Государственной фельдъегерской службы Российской Федерации»). Awarded for special merit in the development and improvement of the State Courier Service of Russia over many years of conscientious work. It can be bestowed upon officers of the State Courier Service of Russia with seniority of twenty-five years or more with at least 15 of those years in the State Courier Service of Russia. The length of service includes service in bodies of internal affairs, military service, other service where there are special titles, as well as work in the State Courier Service of Russia in positions of employees or workers. To federal civil servants who occupy posts in the State Courier Service of Russia, employees of the State Courier Service of Russia in replacement positions not positions in the federal civil service system of the State Courier Service of Russia, as well as the workers and employees of territorial bodies of the State Courier Service of Russia and its subordinate organizations, who have twenty-five years seniority or more with at least 15 of those years in the State Courier Service of Russia. Type 1 at left, type 2 at right. The reverse has an area for a serial number.
  14. Merci! Je passe l'info à mon collègue.
  15. Merci! If he was born in Morocco... Would it make a difference?
  16. Neg... He only visited Canada once prior to his death in 74.
  17. Wow... Odd... Any such database for the Médaille Militaire?
  18. The Main Directorate of Special Programs of the President of the Russian Federation has changed the ribbons of it's service medals to move away from the standard military pattern. A bit odd when you consider only military personel can receive then anyway... The design of the medal itself remains unchaged but the usual red, yellow and green ribbons were changed to blue, yellow and green by order 7 of 24 Feb 2016. The medal VETERAN OF THE GUSP also has a new ribbon, haven't found one yet though.
  19. All, One of my subordinates is retiring in a month's time after 37 years of service. He recently discovered while going through his deceased grand-father's estate that the man had served in WW2 and after, retiring with the rank of Adj-chef (CWO) with the Médaille Militaire and Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur, the other possible décerations are unknown besides perhaps a Médaille de la Résistance. My colleagues and I would love to be able to hand him detailed information on his grand-father's service, any and all help would be sooooo appreciated! He doesn't even have a photo of him in uniform! Can anybody help in getting me service records? Citations? Photos? Adjudant-chef Marcel Yves Le Bihan, Service du Matériel At the beginning of the war he was in the 2e Régiment de Spahis Marocains. he quite possibly served in the resistance in Bretagne between 42 and 45. Our colleague is the last of his family line, there are no relatives to turn to... I visited the French army historical web site, might as well forget it... Any brave helpful soul out there?
