RB & RB#2 group to airforce major Baranovsky

Recommended Posts

RB & RB#2 group Red Army Airforce


in 1994 I bought in Vienna this - documented, but incomplete & unresearched - RB-group of airforce major (1946) Baranovsky, who fullfilled his duties at the far-east war theatre in 1945:

The photograph from 1946 shows Baranovsky with RS, RB, MMM and Japan-Medal.

It seems, that all his listed awards - except his first RB - are long service awards:

- MMM (10y.)

- RS (15y.)

- RB#2 (20y.)

- Lenin (25y.)

- RS

Maybe he got his second RS just before retirement for outstanding success in training his troops or pilots - or for something similar - or just at his retirement :unsure: ?

His RB#2 s/n. 19.404 is identical (and also same s/n.-range!) to the researched one, Paul R showed to us: <a href="http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=22921" target="_blank">http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=22921</a>

Best regards :beer:


BTW: I paid in 1994 for the group EUR 280,-, which was far too much at that time, but I wanted that group ... :rolleyes:
