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*

    • 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.
