USSR Officers Photo...demoted?

Recommended Posts


He didn't even TRY to iron away the marks of the place where he had RAMMED it through before!!! :speechless:

That is what I have never understood about the horribly DESTRUCTIVE nature of the Soviet screwbacks. Didn't ANYBODY have any concern about the permanent damage it causes to clothing? :speechless:

That great big hole and squashed down imprint of whre he USED to wear his award sure looks ... wonderful... on full formal parade dress, huh? :banger:

Senior Lieutenant P. S. Brazhko, below, is missing a Red Star--same tightened so hard and so long it has left a Dinosaur Footprint in his tunic :speechless1: but wearing his ribboned medals:

Did he "carelessly" lose it-- and so was not allowed a duplicate replacement? Or was the enamel broken and so ugly he didn't want to wear it, unrepaired? Or....

was he wearing another officer's jacket while his was getting washed? :rolleyes:

no awards whatsoever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :speechless1::speechless::banger:

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
