Recommended Posts

Okay, let's see if we can find some interesting pix of our Mongolian decorated friends

First off Choibalsan and Tsedenbal in full glory

ATTENTION: I have, as usual, found most of these photos on the web, if anyone feels his/her copyrights have been violated, please let me know, and I will remove the pictures

Nice photo Lingqi! Welcome to The Forum!!!!! That's a very interesting and unique combination of awards that Choibalsan has chosen to wear for this meeting..... If I'm not mistaken, that looks like a Type 1 State Security/Ministry of The Interior Badge way up top of his "patch"....

Here are some pics of Marshal K.E.Voroshilov sporting his nice collection.

He was awarded the hero star but I'm must be missing something 'cause I don't see it anywhere. He was also awarded 2 orders of Sukhbaatar but they are kinda hard to see.

Here is the only picture I could find of lieutenant General G.S.Titov who was awarded the Mongolian Hero star in 1961.

Titov was born on Sept 11 1935 in the Altai region, which just happens to border Mongolia. All right a local boy!!!....well almost.

Here are some interesting facts about him and his career.

He is the youngest person to have gone into space at 25 years 11months.

He was the second person to orbit the Earth.

He was the first person to get "space sickness",

and last but not least how many people do you know that have a crater on the moon named after them???

Well Titov has one, albeit on the far side...

    • 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. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
