Order of the Patriotic war - 681344


Recommended Posts

To the best of my knowledge there is no website that allows one to find the name of a recipient based on the number on a Soviet order or medal (there are Russian language books that allow one to find the name of HSU and Order of Lenin recipients based on the number).  There are researchers who have contacts at the Russian archives who for a fee will obtain for you the name of the recipient based on t he number and obtain his/her  medal record card and other documents. 

If there is paper work with the order/medal that documents the name of the recipient, then one can obtain the award sheet with citation and the order awarding the order/decoration at http://podvignaroda.ru/?#tab=navPeople_search but be aware that the one must search the website in Russian and that the documents are in Russian.

It is possible Bill. Jubilee 1985 OPW are researchable with a hit rate similar to the war time awards.

Hello all, found it today in my dad's drawer. He buyed it for my birthday. 

It's a 1985 badge. - but with such a low number. 😳

Are you sure? :) Could you show it? Otherwise there exists a small number of awards with a mistake in the numbers, like one digit less or one digit more.

Interesting... I don't see any invasion into the number... The question is it a mistake (such are known) on the Jubilee OPW2 1985 or it is a reissue of the war time award but on the Jubilee type... 

IT is more likely a mistake... but I am not sure if any of the two theories can proved definitively.

Could it be a 1st Class piece? Some of those have so much patina that you can barely see the gilt.

Hello, yes it's a first class award

    • George Macdonald Fraser describes tea as "The British Army's cure for anything except a stomach wound."   Partial to Earl Grey, meself.  Used to be a tea drinker until Law School, where we had no cafeteria, only vending machines.  Awful as vending machine coffee is, their tea is worse.   Michael
    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
