Well he looks about as unhappy as I am that I sold documented badge #21 many moons ago... :angry:

Maybe it is a case of "i kicked ass as a partisan and all I got for it was this lousy badge":)

This is always the difficulty of collecint, at some point it is letting go. I have been thinking last weeks about actually selling my entire Mongolian collection in a year or 2-3, paying down mortgage, and focussing purely on Albanian. Wasn't able to make up my mind, but not as "attached" to material items anymore as in the past, including my medals collection.

Praise the people who documented/archived things in Mongolia the past decades!

Attached scan of an 800 page book with bios on the 1921 Partisans. There are two more parts to this series of 3 books with Partisan bios, am awaiting to get the other two parts as well.

700 pages of bios, roughly 5 page bio per partisan = 140 per book = 420 in total - not far off past estimates

And finally, what appears to be the beginning of page after page of ukaz with names and numbers (of the badge???)

Keeping my fingers crossed to validate with some Partisan documents in this thread. This could be a treasure trove of information potentialy tied to individual (if numbered) badges !!!

Whereas this is something apparently dated from 1960:

[attachmentid=21216]

There is nothing in this book which appears to bear a serial number indicating that it came with a badge-- I suspect it is a "privileges" book, indicating the Old Partisan had enummerated perks on the subsequent completely pre-printed pages, Soviet style (extra pay, housing allownce, personal service priorities and so on).

The design of the badge seems very very modern to me, but the enamelwork seems similar to that of the Khasan and Khalkin Gol badges. The weird soldered wire coil channel for the usual undersized flimsy pin in typical of those I see in Red Chinese awards from the late 1940s and 1950s.

So how old ARE the Partusan badges? What DOES the Book actually do? And who was this recipient?

I THINK I recognize his name in my book! And it would confirm nr 4 as well... more digging later!

Just in, a lone nr 93 - no document unfortunately. Nothing new for this thread, but these badges don't pop up very often anymore so wanted post it anyway.

Finally finding the time to dig into the 3 book series with bio's on Partisans that I've had in my library for a long time. Already spotted a bio on Sodnomdarjaa (see below for a link on his background). Will post it here once translated. Believe I may have also found a bio for one of FJCP's Partisan's.

Probably a wealth of information in these books and will be spending more time in them the coming months to try to link bio's to award docs in my collection and others posted here. One of the interesting things I noticed is that there's also bio's of Russians in the book.

Here an example of what I was easily able to find on Sodnomdarjaa in the big Partisan book. Just posting the first part of his bio, there's 4.5 pages of it (book 3, page 155)

I will try to get this translated. Appreciate if somebody with better skills than me could transcribe names from other award documents in this thread. I'm happy to then look up the name in the book series and send scans of the bios.

Thanks - any possibility to transcribe the name for me?

I will have access to my Partisan biography books this coming weekend and will then be able to scan pages of the person's bio for you.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
