Bravery medal 2286285 - marine


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just wanted to share few medals that I recently picked up during my holidays in Estonia. I also got the owners files via research services that one of our fellow forum member is organising.

Now, I was hoping that at least one of the medal' s owner is Estonian but unfortunately not. Therefore I will move them on probably soon enough but still, the excitement of the research is great and therefore I would like to share results.

First I got a nice bravery medal numbered 2286285.

Viktor Kuzmin, marine. He fought at the most northern peak of the front - Musta-Tunturi, Kola peninsula in Artic Russia, where he fixed cutted telephone line under heavy enemy fire, also he was in the combat where he killed at least 3 germans and saved injured comrades.

Staršina (NCO) Mikhail Klyuchnikov, Navy AA artillery. Served in very rare lake Ladoga flotilla! His unit shot down 5 enemy planes during the action, where he participated as well.

Medal is with the scare small original ribbon plate. Unfortunately disk is missing but I reckon I still did well.

Great! Nice citation. Here is the map of KLYUCHNIKOV's separate AA artillery squadron in 1943 about the time mentioned in the citation.

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
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
