    A NAVAL Commissar!!!!! Congratulations-- haven't seen much recent naval research come in. :cheers:

    It's "Party-political work," not "partisan-political."

    8 medals... hmmmm

    Victory Over Germany

    1948 Jubilee

    his MMM for 10 years service in 1953

    1958 Jubilee

    15 Years Service Medal in 1958

    20 Years Service Medal in 1963

    1965 Jubilee

    that's still only 7, unless they were counting ahead for his 1968 jubilee at this early a date.

    I'm a research pig-- have you tried for his personnel file?

    I'm sitting on a WW2 Polar naval aviation/Cold War nuclear strike flying officer partial group-- haven't gambled on the naval archives yet.
