Recommended Posts

It was just a matter of time.  Following the dissolution of the Internal Troops (VV MVD) and establishment of the Russian National Guard on April 5, 2016 by decree of the President of the Russian Federation № 157, new departmental awards were created by Order of the National Guard of Russia № 50 of February 14, 2017.  I'm presently translating the lenghty document and am already at work producing a new Wiki page.  Here's a teaser below...

The medals are multiplying like mushrooms after rainy summer day. :D

I'll be honest with you...  I almost started crying when I saw this...  I'm seriously considering going back to collecting beer labels! :cheers:

Frank, I think we should recommend you for the Medal "For the Promotion of the National Guard"  - as you are busy telling the medal-loving world about it!

My bosses would L-O-O-O-O-V-E to get a phone call from the Russian consulate informing them I was being decorated by them... :o I'd probably lose my security clearance and get water boarded! :wacky:

Oh by the way...  Have a looksee here: CLICK HERE TO WIKI PAGE

Is there any way for a Russian not to win any medals? This is getting just too ridiculous.

Actually, it's pretty much the same in the USA...  Look at the different service awards then add all of the states' National Guard awards, ROTC, etc...  Those 2 countries really do love their bling! :)

We can skip the call if you wish and just show up at your place for the ceremony. Please, memorise the Russian anthem before next Tuesday. 

The Wiki page is charming. :beer:

Wiki page is magnificiently informative... and bodes fair to distract me from current activities (Malawi on my site and US National Guard and British Campaign Medals on the OMSA site if you must know!).

I just discovered a long 2018 order detailing a just as long list of new breast badges that almost rivals the Defense Ministry... *SIGH*

Will slap in on ASAP...

I went through the lengthy establishment order, there are 6 more badges.  I also started adding them to the Wiki article with details.  A time consuming process.  I also added 4 new medals...  *SIGH*

    • 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
