Dear forum members,:D

There are some sites and books about soviet oders and medals

But there are very few updates and they are mostly Russian, not English

So I asked to owner of the mondvor site if I could translate it, but they probably do not see the email often...:wacky:

I'm thinking of creating a reference site based on Paul McDaniel's book! (Of course it's not updated, but it's the most popular, reliable book)

We're looking for ways to get photos of each type of medal without violating copyright laws.

It seems to be the best way to get permission from the owners.

I would appreciate if you let us know an individual or a museum that has many collections and will allow us to use images

 

Best regards,

I use the Mondvor site often, and since my native language is English I use the Chrome website translator and the results are very good.

There are a plethora of forums (this one included) that provide for images and information, many of them in English and those in other languages are easily translated in this day and age.

As for medal images I have a relatively extensive collection and would be happy to be involved with taking photographs of them.  But my time and effort would require some sort of compensation.

    • 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.
