An easy one as I am not the greatest Soviet expert by many millions of millions of miles and Brezhnev was an inspired guess after some pretty vile Belarus vodka.

How many Brtish Citizens were decorated in the years of the Great Patriotic War with Soviet Orders and Medals and name the the four recipients of the Medal for Valiant Labour and what they were involved in to receive them.

Best of luck

All the information is available on a roll published by John Clarke about 25? years ago taken from the Offical Soviet register with cross references to he London Gazette and yes only 4 medals for Valiant Labour were awarded for the Great Patriotic War. If no one gets it I will give the details.

All the best.
