... and by "dogs" I assume you mean Putin and his gangsters, which I think would be an insult to dogs.

One thing I don't understand is how all this stuff can be interesting, in the Russian Federation even dogs are embarrassed to wear it on themselves.

The Russian Defense Ministry has authorized in excess of 350 new awards in the past 20 years.  It's honestly difficult to keep track, and trust me, I've spent a quite inordinate amount of time at it!  Out of those hundreds, a mere dozen are actual combat/operational awards.  The outstanding majority are mere service or efficiency awards of ever-increasing levels.  Many are destined for senior officials only...  


Interesting?  Fascinating actually!  Unfortunately, more often than not, on a more anthropological and political aspect rather than military.

I don't think there is a place for politics here. In this case, by dogs, I mean dogs. And as for the public figures of power in all imperialist bourgeois states, they are all actors-clowns who play the role of rulers for the people, although oligarchs-monopolists rule.

    • 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.
