In posts #85 to #87 in this thread I illustrated the Partisan Star and certificate to Soviet Lieutenant Anatolii Ivanovich Akulshin. Just discovered that he was also awarded an Order of the Red Star by the Soviets.

Hello,

few more informations. I have Mondvor 2nd class numbered 5 179 (handgraved) and 3rd class IKOM numbered 22 012 (stamped).

Partisan stars were awarded also to other nationalities. I have seen 1st class awarded to a Czechoslovak general after the war.

I saw quite a lot of 1st class stars in Bulgarian National museum of military history, unfortunately taking pictures is forbidden. I presume that the most of the Bulgarians received this order on the Syrmian Front where they fought together with Yugoslav and Soviet forces.

Do you happen to know the names of those Bulgarians awarded with 1st class Partisan Star?

Here's another cavalier of 1st class Partisan Star - General Dobri Terpeshev, commander of Bulgarian partisan movement NOVA (People Liberation Rebel Army).

General Terpeshev received his Partisan Star 1st class in January 1948.

Unfortunately nо, I'm not very familiar with Bulgarian generals and officers from that era so I forgot their names almost instantly :(

I've been meaning to start a topic about some let's say strange Yugoslav Partisan Stars but this seemed like a better place for expressing my doubts.

What do you think about this second class order?

Those very shinny screw nuts always scare me, back side of the order is also strange - especially the number, could be bad picture but it seems like everything except the first digit is unreadable.

I've been following discussion about this matter on various forums but I would also like to hear opinions of the participants in this topic.

Thanks in advance.

One more "shinny" piece, notice the big contrast in color between the edges of the star and the wreath around it. Looks like someone painted the wreath but missed couple of spots...

Same thing here and one more (in my opinion) strange looking number.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
