Stepan Konstantinovich Yatsevich


Recommended Posts

Yup. :cheers:

Highest/latest numbered one I've ever seen, too. THAT would be a VERY interesting research project-- late for a WW2 war invalid, or for :unsure: Korea? :jumping:

Wondered about that, Rick . . . a really late numbered (and high-numbered) award. Off to the researcher with this one!

Hi guys,

so the research ant translation is ready.

Sadly, it is not for Korea. It for action in 1944.

Enjoy it.

I?ll post the documents later.

Hi Andreas,

I took the liberty of moving the thread to the researched awards forum.

Well done on this one! Goes to keep showing the great stories behind these otherwise 'humble' medals.
