Need help with a badge and medals


Recommended Posts

Hello

I have just returned from a trip to Riga. I bought these items very cheap, from a street vendor. I wonder if anyone can tell me what they are, and if it's just something made for tourists. Thank's in advance.

All the best

First ugly little badge (never seen that before) is for Excellent GUARD/SENTRY Service in whatever that organization is or was. It's in Russian.

Zhukov Medal was handed out to all WW2 veterans alive in 1996.

The Labor Veteran was given to anyone in a civilian job on retirement.

Both are quite common.

Hi Marc & Snoopy,

Post 1 & 2 would be a badge for Excellent Military service in the PribVO (the former Baltic Military District)

Yep, sometimes, one thinks too hard to figure things out. Thanks Eddie!
