Who was this guy?

I discussed this with "A Friend of Us All" in Ulanbaatar. He believed an identity can be assigned. Watch this space . . . .

:beer:

That last ribbon is very much tinkered together on my bar, but has what seems to be a French-style 2nd class (gold-rosette-silver) device.

And just to see them side-by-side . . .

Alexei Merezhko had one of the same vintage and probably same construction while you were gone.

So that's TWO that have eluded me!

I guess I beat you to it as the ribbon bar is one of the ones Alexei had.

Right, the third one on the 1st bar is for the Order of Combat Valor.

One of those that took me quite some time to get. I guess it's harder to find than the more common ones.

The hardest to find being of course the ribbon for the OSB :speechless:

It is the order of Combat Valor, I think it a little harder top get than the others.

Ah . . . scanning problems and it is scanned with the bar flipped. All is clearer now. What I expected. An uncommon bar to be sure, especially from that era. Thanks.

Correct, restored in the corner. Presumably the ribbon got soiled, torn or something like that. Rather crudely done (can be seen on reverse).

Makes you wonder where all these awards have disappeared to...
