An officer with an interesting combination of a regular soldier Titovka and an early 1946-1953 uniform. He's wearing an Order of Merits for the People possibly 3rd class, an Order and Medal for Bravery. He's also wearing a medal which I can't identify.

Looks like the Medal of the Czechoslovak Military Order for Liberty.
Here's a photo from Wikipedia for comparison.

Sergey Georgiyevich Gorshkov wearing one of his two Partisan Stars 1st class.

His daughter donated all of his awards to a Russian museum among which are his Partisan Stars. If I'm not mistaken one is a Mondvor with a screwplate and another one is an IKOM one with a double needle.9.thumb.jpg.4ac3360087167c074df89953f6bb5ce9.jpg

Excellent photos, there can't be many double first class recipients.
Both stars are Soviet type.

This is really impressive! Two 1st and one 2nd class.

I've seen combinations of 1st+2nd and 2nd+3rd Partisan Stars but I've never seen anyone with all 3 classes. I'm not even sure if there was anyone.

That would certainly be an interesting sight but I don't remember seeing anyone wearing all three classes.

That's a great photo, you don't see many photos with Soviet made People's Liberation and Brotherhood&Unity in wear.

True. The only two Soviet made People's Liberations I saw were Kidrič's and Tito's. Here's the painting of Tito wearing that order. Unfortunately I couldn't find the photo although I've seen it many times on the internet. I better save it in my album the next time I see it. :) 

He's also wearing a Soviet Order of Suvorov 1st class and an Order of People's Hero with a ribbon for the Yugoslav Flag. I guess the painter didn't do enough research. :D

Don't mention it :beer:
Enver Hoxha wearing People's Hero Order and Partisan Star 1st class (looks like Yugoslav is in the 2nd row).
He was stripped of the People's Hero title after the Tito - Stalin split.
