Guards Junior Sergeant Mikhail Petrovich Smadik

Recommended Posts

I am picturing a sabre wielding Russian Billy the Kid. :speechless1:

Forgot to mention (busy busy day and still jubilatin' on my own finds) that while he was a Guards Junior Sergeant on his citation, when the Awards Record Card was filled out in 1947 he was mysteriously busted down two grades to Buck Private.

One senses a young Comrade with excessive personal initiative (his other citations are probably equally scary) who did not conform well to plan norms. :rolleyes:

I think your image may not be far off the mark, Rick. I am setting the s-l-o-w wheels turning to get the recommendations for the awards I do not have. Some may consider this a lunatic waste of money, I see it as completing the historical record.
