Here a group of documents that belonged to Lt.Colonel Sambuu Dorjgotov. He was a senior ranking officer at the Ministry of Public Security of MPR back in 1970s. He was a Senior Officer (Deputy Chief) of the Department #1 (Foreign Intelligence) of the Ministry of Public Security in 1972. In other word: a spy. At that time he held the rank of Major.
Documents in the group: 
1) Order of Sukhbaatar recipient's booklet for receiving monthly 50 tugrugs. The document has the recipient's photo and the details of the Sukhbaatar order (besides the award date and decree number, it also lists the serial number #1289 and serial number of the booklet #1241). He received the payments from November 1977 till end of June 1979. 
2) Order and Medal Booklet listing three awards: 1) Honorary Medal of Combat # 5110 awarded in 1956; 2) Order of Combat Valor awarded in 1961 and Order of Red Banner of Combat Valor awarded in 1972.

Mongolian enthusiasts may be interested that the feature article in the January - February issue of JOMSA: The Journal of the Orders and Medals Society of America is "The Gold Star Medal and 'Hero of the Mongolian People's Republic' Title Awarded to Lieutenant Colonel Choi Dugarjav" by Khuujii Urnukh and Pamela J H Slutz.  The issue goes to the printer on 1 January and will be out to the membership about the third week of January..

Ms Slutz is a former US ambassador to Mongolia and apparently caught a bit of the Mongolia collecting bug as well. She was also awarded a Polar Star order,

Hello Bob, this group is really interesting, but.... why do the late orders do not have their s/n written in the order booklet? A double clerk failure would be really astounding?

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.
