Lt.-Colonel as a Full Cavalier of Glory !


Recommended Posts

High-ranking officers with Glory-Trios

Gentlemen,

just by googling around about the Order of Glory in Russian language, I found that interesting Full Cavalier of the Order of Glory, who retired as a Lt.-Colonel:

Alexei Leontovitch KOVALEV ( Алексей Леонтьевич Ковалев ), born at the 12th of may 1925 in the Ukraine.

He finished the GPW at the age of 20, holding the rank of a Junior Sergeant and bearing the 3 Orders of Glory, one RS and the usual medals.

Years later he retired as a Lt.-Colonel - a quite steep career :jumping: .

Here are some links to our hero (Russian language):

Are there other such careers among the Cavaliers of Glory :unsure: ?

Best regards :beer:
