What benefits did a HSU was entitled to ?

Recommended Posts

So I what's wondering what benefits you could get for being awarded the gold star of the HSU or they're equivalents ; the full cavaliers of the order of glory or the full cavaliers of the order of service to the homeland in the armed forces of the ussr

since no one has replied and i was too curious about it , i did a little bit of research 

heroes of the soviet union were entitled to :

  • A pension with survivor benefits in the event of the death of the title holder.
  • First priority on the housing list with 50% rent reduction, tax exempt and an additional 15 square meters in living space.
  • Annual round-trip first class ticket
  • Free bus transportation
  • Free annual visit to sanatorium 
  • Medical benefits
  • Entertainment benefit

full cavaliers of the order of glory were entitled to the same benefits that the HSU had .

and for the cavaliers of the order of service to the homeland in the armed forces of the ussr 

  • priority in the choice of living quarters;
  • yearly free round trip personal travel by rail (express or passenger trains), by ship (in first class cabins, express or passenger lines), by air or by long-distance road transport;
  • free personal use of all types of urban passenger transport in rural areas within the limits of the Republic (except for taxis);
  • free vouchers to a sanatorium or rest home (once a year on the recommendation of a medical institution);
  • extraordinary availability to community services provided by domestic enterprises, cultural or educational institutions; and,
  • a 15% increase in pension.

do you guys know any other benefits that the cavaliers held ?

    • 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
