I tell ya, the little wife can sure be understanding at XMas time when it comes to my collection... The 1st half of my XMas present was a Commander of the Legion of Honour, this is the second half.

I was a wewy wewy good boy! :whistle:

I have never seen these new Russian medals before. I find the labor related medals to be very attractive. Is the Labor Valor medal numbered?

Neg, the only one high enough to deserve a serial number is the FSO's Decoration for Distinction in the Performance of Special Assignments

Thanks for the photos TacHel. What is this medal(or is it an Order) awarded for? Is yours numbered?

Neg, mine isn't numbered, it's bran new un issued. I doubt a single numbered one as yet to hit the market, the award is only 6 1/2 years old.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain.
