    One man’s group of 9 awards with issue cards.


    Recommended Posts

    Hi Gents,

    I spotted these the other day. They came from a house clearance here in the UK as far as I know.

    I imagine there are many of these medals but I’m happy I’ll be able to keep them and their paperwork together as a group, as they deserve.

    If one of you Gents would kindly help me with the recipients name, so I can note it down and add it to the paperwork, that really would be appreciated, 🍻

    & Any thoughts or comments welcome as always.

     

    Cheers

    Nice little group! Congrats! I wonder if he received any decorations. Only way to find out would be to do an archive search on the name. Given the current political climate, I don’t know if that’s still possible to do?

    Thanks Stogieman, I thought so too. 😊

    & That’s a good question.
    I’ll put it on my ‘to do’ list, the war will be long over by the time I reach it 😉


    I tried a Google search with no results, I thought maybe an obituary or something might come up, that last award is from 2009.

    Marcel posted the personality, who is likely the recipient of those medals. 
    but it is not 100% certain. Good: there is only one person with the same full name and officer rank. 
    On the down side, we don’t know his birth year. Meaning, it could be a younger man, who became an officer after the war graduating from a military school. Such man possibly didn’t get any awards during the war, hence would be “invisible” in the online database. 
     

    Farkas, could you post the award booklets open so that it can be read. 
     

    Also, there are two booklets for 40 years of Victory medal.

    Thank you both for your interest.

     

    It would amazing if this is a picture of the man himself. He looks like a fit and healthy man but I wonder if any man would ever have expected to live long enough to receive a 65 year Anniversary Medal.

     

    Cheers & thanks again,

    tony 🍻

    He was born in 1924 and would be 84 in 2009. Quite possible...
    According to the 2010 census in the Russian Federation, there were ~50.000 men born in 1924. IT would be very similar for Belorussia, I think, where the veteran got his 65 year jubilee medal.
