  1. Here is an interesting Order of the Red Star awarded by decree in 1942 to Nikolai Semyenovich Gershon. By the time the Order was given out in 1986, he had changed his name to Nikolai Semyenovich Mikhlin. It's interesting to see that an award in the range of 3,700,000 was awarded by decree in December 1942. Mikhlin was living in Leningrad at the time his award was finally presented to him, not out in the wilderness, so his name change must have been the reason it took so long to get to him. Anyway, onto the research...

Prior to entering into combat Comrade Gershon applied full zeal to train his squad in the skill of sniper shooting and trained brave, accurate riflemen for action in combat.

  2. Hi All! This is another recent pickup of mine, a group to Guard Senior Lieutenant Trofimov Nikolai Dmitrievich. He apparently made it from Moscow, through Stalingrad, to Berlin. And he earned a red star (#2,124,058) and OGPW (#659,192) along the way...I think. Those two awards didn't come with an order book, so the only way to know for sure is through research, I guess. If anyone wants better pictures, let me know. Thanks! -Alex
  3. This is one of my favorite groups. It belonged to Guards Lt. Colonel Mikhail Aleksandrovich Tolkachev. Colonel Tolkachev joined the Red Army on 18 September 1938 and served until 11 December 1964. He served through WW2 and and advised the Red Chinese. He was a career tanker, though his positions during the War included service with motor rifle units. The greatest thing about this group was that he kept the photos he took at the end of the War! It sheds an interesting light on the road to victory (so to speak) at the vanguard of the 3rd Guards Tank Army, where he served as the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations for the 22nd Motor-Rifle Brigade attached to the 6th Guards Tank Corps. During the War, he earned the Red Banner, two OGPW 1sts, and the Red Star. His citations include the following: In the village of Medvezhinskoye 27 January 1943, after all our rifle commanders were killed during an enemy counterattack, he stopped a squad from the battalion and personally led the soldiers into an attack. As a result of this surprise counterattack, our soldiers retook the village and forced out the enemy. After the enemy had fled, our soldiers launched another attack and destroyed the enemy forces. He acted with exceptional courage. His first Order of the Patriotic War was awarded in September 1943. He was initially nominated for a second Red Star, but it was upgraded to the Order of Kutuzov 3rd Class. Other minds prevailed however, and he was awarded the OGPW 1st Captain Tolkachev, as a Chief of Staff of the 1059th Rifle Regiment, immediately participated in the preparation of operations carried out by the regiment between 22 August 1943 and 28 September 1943. In combat, during the offensive, he provided prompt leadership. As a result of the implemented plans that have been developed with Comrade Tolkachev?s active participation, the troops broke through heavy German fortifications of the on the western bank of the Severnaya Dontsa river in the village of Krivaya Lyka from 4 to 5 September 1943 and advanced, taking over the villages of Krivaya Lyka, Zakatnoye, Kolenniki, Bezkrovny, Rai-Alexandrovka, as well as the mountain of Slovyanska and the height 168,4 towering over Slovyansk. The taking of this height provided for the advancement of our troops to the west and south-west of Slovyansk, to the village of Shostakovka, where the enemy attempted to stop the advancement of our troops. As a result of the able and prompt leadership of Captain Tolkachev during the attacks, up to 950 enemy officers and soldiers, 8 trucks carrying goods, 2 artillery and 1 mortar batteries, 10 earth and timber pillboxes were destroyed. Ten motorcycles, 3 warehouses with ammunition, 30 bicycles, 2 fuel warehouses, 6 machine-guns and other smaller pieces were captured. Comrade Tolkachev deserves to be awarded the Order of Red Star. His second Order of the Patriotic War was awarded in January 1945 with the following citation: During the course of brigade?s military campaigns, Guards Captain Tolkachev, as a Deputy Operations Chief of Staff, maintained the operations of his department at top levels. By providing timely information about the situation on the battlefield, informing the sub-units of military orders, and ensuring their complete fulfillment, he helped the brigade to successfully fulfill its military objectives. Comrade Tolkachev actively participated in the crossing of the rivers Nida and Pyalitsa by the sub-units of the brigade. The crossings of the rivers were exemplary. For his courage and bravery he deserves to be awarded the Order of the Great Patriotic War 1st Class. His final wartime award was the Order of the Red Banner in April 1945. He was initially nominated for an Order of Lenin, but it was downgraded to the Red Banner. Comrade Tolkachev works as the deputy head of operations. During the course of brigade?s military actions, he has showed himself as a courageous, developing commander. On 24 April 1945 during forced crossing of the Teltov Canal, Guards Captain Tolkachev, who was among the infantry under heavy enemy artillery fire, organized the crossing of the Canal with only locally procured materials. During street fighting in Berlin, Comrade Tolkachev organized effective coordination between the means of enforcement and advancing infantry. He is brave and resolved in battle, fulfills the orders of his commanders without regard for his life. For courage and bravery in battles he deserves to be awarded with the Order of Lenin. What an amazing wartime record! And yet, as can be seen by the photos, he never lost his wry smile. A truly amazing man that I would have loved to have met in person. Enjoy the following posts....

  4. Gentlemen, In the thread “Red Star Awarded for Battle of Kursk” an interesting point was raised with regard to the rarity of decorations and awards for The Battle of Kursk. Rather than send Soviet 1000’s thread off in another direction, I thought that we could use a separate thread dedicated to this question of rarity and for posting Kursk awards. I would like to start by presenting Order of the Patriotic War, 1st class, #15515 which was issued on 6 August 1943 to Col. Vladimir Mikhaylovich Kramar, assistant operational department commander, Headquarters of the Central Front. The award citation notes that “During the July operations, comrade Kramar strenuously worked...”.
  5. Just when you think that items and research have betrayed you, you get surprised. That is one thing I like -- I think -- about this "hobby". Solo Order of the Red Banner #264731.
  6. Hello gents, finally i have a researched OGPW 1st class. And it looks interesting, but the citation is unfortunately handwritten and i have a hard time to gather any info at all from it. Interestingly this research came with three award cards. One for this OGPW 1st class:
  7. Here is the group, award booklets, Orders Books, Medals Book will follow. The ONLY things missing from this group, 1938 to 1991 are his 1938 Khasan Badge and Award Book, and the document to his 50th Abnniversary of the Ukrainian KGB Badge.
  8. I bet you all haven't seen an award card like this before! I'll let folks stretch their Cyrillic reading abilities to figure out who this award card belonged to... Dave
  9. Hi everyone, i got my first soviet group yesterday and its much too nice not to share it with you. I will post the group and Rick will add some personal data. Thanks very much to Rick for his effort to translate the research for me. Comrade Aleksandr Andreevich Gavrilenko was Ukrainian and served in several Rifle units. But let Rick tell the Rest. Here is his Order book with entries for two Military Merit Medals, a Red Star and a Red Banner.
  10. I have received some prelimary results from some research I ordered from a fellow forum member. There may be more that I will share when it comes in... very soon! Anyway, this research is for my screwback Order of the Red Banner. I bought this at a highly discounted price from Igor M back in 1992. It was discounted because some of the enamel had been damaged/replaced. Here is the medal
  11. This very interesting group was sold recently in Russia. Cavalier helped "Egyptian Comrades" with radar installations ...
  12. Hi all. I got this one from Rick (Stogieman) back in 2006. It's now in the collection of Kapusta Norm over at SAF but as he's said it "may" come back to my collection some day. I'm posting this with his kind permission... the research and pics are his with the exception of the two of the award itself which, if memory serves were from Rick (Stogieman) from when I got it from him... was actually a shot of this one and a T1 MMM but I cut it down just to show the T1 BM. Many thanks to both Kapusta Norm and to Stogieman. And awaaaaaay we go! First the award itself:
  13. Unfortunately this group was recently split by the seller … At least in this thread it will remain intact Cavalier
  14. Major of Medical Service was awarded with Order of Red Star for providing medical assistance to citizens of Democratic Republic of Vietnam (air defence of Haiphong) during bombing raids of American aviation in 1967/1968.
  15. I a posting the research of a double Red Banner Group. What is special about this group is that I was able to find the second red banner from a collector in Australia, so was able to reunite them, so will continue to search for other missing awards.

  16. Hi All, My name is Dan and I am looking for a Soviet Bravery Medal which number is 1005996. It sold from ebay and come with document. If any one got this medal or any information. Please contact me with this email : 317715375@qq.com Thanks a lot! Kind regards, Dan
  17. As you can see this one has had the enamel in the top arm replaced at some point in it's history due to damage.
  18. I recently picked up this small group to Private Stefan Kuzmich Bolshunov during my trip to Estonia (I also visited Russia, Finland, and Sweden). Bravery Medal #2,844,012 - 1.6.45 Medal for Victory over Germany Order of the Patriotic War 1st Class (1985) #2,603,625 Also included are a case, documents for the Victory Over Germany medal and OGPW, two military ID books, and war invalid documents. The document for the Bravery Medal is missing, but its serial number and award date are included in both of the ID books. For now I will just post the group and the two medal documents. The military ID booklets are very heavily scribbled-in - a gold mine of information. Of the groups in my collection, this one probably has the most information available without even paying for research. In fact, I wonder if any research beyond the citation is even necessary, considering that essentially everything that would be on an award record card is here. I am going to get some help translating the ID's before I post them, though. Alex
  19. Hi all, During my travels, I got one interesting and abused piece of paper what shows only a Red Army officer rank and name. It turned out that the Junior Ltn. Kariste received United States Distinguished Service Medal because his valour during Velike Lukie operation. He trough back 7 german hand grenades and lost his arm, when the last grenade exploded. My main question is - how many these kind a States awards Red Army men received and does anyone knows what paper slip it can be exactly - complimentary card with the letter, etc? He was native estonian and lived after the war in the small coastal town called Haapsalu. Place, from where I bought that piece of paper as well.
