Soviet Guards LTC and a polish Master Corporal


Recommended Posts

My 1st post in this new section👌. Got this interesting photograph with a Soviet Guards Lieutenant Colonel and a polish Master Corporal. The Soviet officer has a Guards Badge, Order of the Great Patriotic War (probably 1st class), Victory Over Germany medal, and several polish awards. Reverse is empty.

Hi, A....

This is how the post looks......

1111.JPG.ae19f6c0553394323da13f06652c7b0e.JPG

having looked at the server code for this image, it may be that there is a link to a social media site called mewe.com which is not recognized by our server, or the name of the image has characters which cause problems.

to cut out any future problems, images should be uploaded directly from your computer via "choose files" and the names given to any image should be letters or numbers.  If you have any further problems...let me know.

and don'y worry, my friend.....there are always teething problems with a new venture...

Hi John,

Thanks for the prompt reply. All my pics are larger than two MB. Do you recommend any website or services to compress the files? Believe or not but I am not on Facebook). 

Wr,

Hello!
I think the Soviet lieutenant colonel has the 3rd grade Polish Cross of the Grunwald and the Medal of Merit in the Field of Honor, probably silver, the Polish senior corporal has the Cross of Valor, and two medals of Merit in the Field of Honor, silver and bronze, and also Soviet decorations.

Awesome. Thank you very much.

I have roughly over 15000 original photographs. I will post them step by step))). My wife purchased for me a large collection of HSU owners from the 2nd WW till the late 1960s. I am glad that I am with this forum.

Cheers. I just ordered a scanner and will start to post the photographs once I have taken care of couple of other things.

    • 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
    • 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
