Recommended Posts

Here it is, my pride in my soviet collection. Finnaly researched after one year of waiting. However, G. has the electronic translations and I can't seem to reach him via email. He's probably traveling again. So I would like to ask someone to do a brief translation for my jewel.

Thank you for your help Koopyetz. As for citation, I have seen better citations for Medals for bravery and military merits, than this. I must say I expected something more spectacular, as it's a rather high order.

Here is a better pic of this beautiful award. Those that were previously posted are horrible.

I still haven't got the actual translations, even after more than a year...

Paul Schmitt also makes translations of these awards papers.
