VERY nice pix. I love the early photos. I've been cataloguing a bunch of mine recently.

Could the young man on the right be wearing a DOSAAF Activist badge? Not that clear, but could be.

I especially like the pilot photo.

Thanks for letting us see these. Please post all you care to share.

Well, I'll try.

The middle guy in Post #1 looks to have a Pioneer Troops collar insignia. I can't tell on the other two.

In post #2 the guy on the left has an Osoaviakhim badge, "Ready for PVKhO" which is, I believe, Air and Chemical Defense.

Post #3 is pretty hazy. Maybe a Voroshilov Shooter's Badge on the left and a Ready for PVKhO on the right, but just guesses from the shapes.

In Post #4 I'd guess an early GTO badge on the left and an Osoaviakhim Voroshilov Shooter's Badge on the right.

In Post #6 the guy on the left is a tankist, of course. I think I'll retract my comment about the DOSAAF Activist badge on the right. That shape looks familiar but I can't quite place it. Seems like I should be able to ID that watch, too, but I can't quite do that either. Maybe it will come to me.

I hope that someone else can give you a little more help.

Thanks again for sharing these. That pilot looks like he just stepped out of "Dawn Patrol" or off of a DOSAAF poster.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
