These have all appeared scattered around in other threads here. I'd have to redo them at the 300dpi you need, so if you need any of these that nobody else olunteers, let me know:

I have--

Berlin (Gds Paymaster Major Muller)

Budapest (antitank Gds Lt Col Yakimov, unit CO signed as Hero of the SU)

Caucasus (mysterious civilian Volynkin)

Kiev (several KGB recipients-- Drutzky and Grebennik)

K?nigsberg (Gds Sapper Major Kremnev and Air Force engineer Colonel Stepanov)

Leningrad (Gds Major Gusev)

Moscow (MajGen Oleinik, Frunze Military Academy)

Prague (antitank Gds Lt Col Yakimov as above)

Sevastapol (the mysterious Volynkin as above, UN-McDaniel'd issuing authority Crimean SSSR Presidium)

Stalingrad (Jr Lt of SS Grebennik)

Warsaw (Gs Pay Major Muller as above, heavy tank btn Captain Kuz'min)

My usual is 150dpi =


I don't know to what LENGTH you want to go... might want to just crop out some close ups of "nifty" stamps with one main illustration per medal type?

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
