Recommended Posts

Gents,

One of the four unidentified Full Cavaliers seen in post #131 this thread is now named. Meet once again Full Cavalier N. Goncharik.

Gents,

First time I've ever encountered this style. Full Cavalier Major General T. P. Kruglyakov elects to wear his four St. George crosses as miniatures on his right breast. Decidedly understated, but very cool.

Gents,

The unidentified Full Cavalier seen in posts #16 and 131 this thread is now identified - A. A. Brykov of the 31st Siberian Rifle Regiment. Here is the best image of him yet.

Gents,

Not every Full Cavalier image is a pretty one. These two Full Cavaliers fell victim to torture at the hands of the enemy while their prisoners. These are unaltered images.

Full Cavalier Senior NCO P. G. Panasyuk had portions of his ears severed when he refused to divulge information on his unit's disposition to his German captors.

Full Cavalier Junior NCO A. D. Makukha had his tongue sliced twice when he refused to divulge information on his unit's disposition to his Austrian captors. Makukha was able to make it back to Russian lines where doctors saved 3/4 of his tongue. Given the extreme circumstances of his heroism, Makukha was awarded all four classes of the St. George Cross simultaneously. For those who can read Russian, details of Makukha's wartime experiences may be found here: http://gold-manaa.livejournal.com/459710.html
