Hero of the Soviet Union

Recommended Posts

A great and large group photograph with soldiers and officers from the Red Army. In the 3rd row we have in the center a Hero of the Soviet Union ((not identified yet). Reverse is blank.

Great photo! Too bad there's no writing in the back.

I wonder what happened with this guy's medal.

The probably lost the medal during the battle. It took some time to get a duplicate from the DOD.

I got several photographs in which service members wear ribbons/medals like that. I need to find one photograph from my collection, in which a sapper is wearing his 3/4 destroyed Order of the Red Star.
