Hi

Following some military diplomas post WW2. These diplomas are very common, but text can be interesting.

The first one was distributed during an official visit to Tunisia, on November, 21 1987, that is only 2 weels after Ben Ali replaced Bourguiba as head of the state

This one was distributed to the same military for his participation on Warsaw Pact maneuvers. This diploma was signed by Viktor Kulikov, Warsaw Pact commander-in-chief from 1977 to 1989.

I will be very glad if someone could translate these 2 diplomas.

This diploma waso delivered to captain Nicolas Nikolaevich  Smirnov for his participation to naval maneuvers OKEAN-75.

OKEAN 75 was a three-week follow-up held in April–May 1975. At this occasion, Soviet Defense Minister Andrey Gretchko declared:

"The Okean maneuvers were evidence of the increased naval might of our socialist state, an index of the fact our Navy has become so great and strong that it is capable of executing mission in defense of our state interests over the broad expanses of the World Oceans"

For further details on the impact of these maneuvers, you can read article written at the time by the NYC times:

Following diplomas were delivered in Luanda, capital of the People's Republic of Angola.

First one:

For achieving highest results in socialist competition, Vladimir Aleksandrovich Kurakov is awarded
For conscientious fulfillment of international duty and in honor of the day of the air fleet.
This diploma was signed by Commander of a aviation unit АН-12 in NRA

I suppose АН-12 refered to plane Antonov 12, so Kurakov was probably piloting or working on plane maintenance.

This diploma was signed in 1988 when Cuba negotiated with South Africa to find a solution to the Angolan civil war.

Besides soviet diplomas,  Kurakov received a diploma from the Ministry of Defense of the People's Republic of Angola.

It's the only diploma delivered by the People's Republic of Angola  I ever see.
