#s 5 and 6 are the award booklet for the little lieutenants' school badge up top above the long service medals, which is the unified type from late 1950s. This is quite interesting-- I have never seen the paperwork for one of these before-- because it refers to officers graduating from "normal military schools." (In Olde Dayse here a "Normal School" graduated school teachers.)

The stamp (I will work at it) from that is something Radio-Technical School (of Anti-Aircraft Defense-- "PVO" I think), signed by Major General of EngTechSvcs Morin on 19.9.58, per decree of the Ministry of Defense of the USSR 20.9.58, as a graduate in 1958 for

Anatoly Petrovich Kostylev.

The stamp is partially illegible from missing ink.

#3 is his full set of long service medals,

10 years as Kapitan, 24.1.66/12.3.66 signed by CO of Unit 01644 Colonel Guzh

15 years 6.12.71/22.2.72 by CO of Unit 67960 Colonel Bur'yakov (or Bur'yanov)

20 years same unit and commander, dates 2.2.77/22.2.77

So he went in in 1956, born ? 1937-ish, Lieutenant 1958, probably Sr Lt ca 1961, Captain by 1966... probably a Lt Col.

#4 is the Medals Booklet to him for a Military Merit Medal awarded 21.2.78/7.4.78 which might be quite interesting. :catjava:

I don't think school cadets were eligible for the 1958 armed forces jubilee medal. But you're missing the 1978 MMM, 1965 and 1968, probably 1970 Lenin, and 1978 jubilees.

I think this is Air Force.
