Interesting fraternal awards


Recommended Posts

Seeing awars from friendly nations on Soviet uniforms is hardly unusual, though it is unusual to see them on the correct ribbons. Here, hoeever, is what seems to me to be an interesting collection (partially out of the photo, as usual :banger:).

It always amazes me when the attesting person (Colonel Bakanov, Commander of Unit 10277) is way junior to the subject--

Colonel General of Artillery Leonid Mikhailovich Goncharov.

"Photographed in January 1983."

The only one I recognize is third from last-- North Vietnamese Friendship Decoration (1960-77 type) =

It was certainly NEATER to mount all such foreign awards together Soviet style-- but rarely done, it seems.
