Gents,

An absolutely stunning image of Maj Gen I. F. Grigorevskiy seen wearing a field modification of the Commander of the British Empire decoration as a breast badge.

He would later be promoted to Lt Gen and awarded the HSU for his command of the 61st Rifle Corps, 69th Army.

"If I remember correctly original negatives are currently in the collection of WarMuseum, London"

I believe use is permissible under the IWM's "Non-Commercial use" licence providing so acknowledged

The ones I posted aren't from there but another web-site that obviously "borrowed" them from somewhere else etc :unsure::)

Hi Nick, that's what I read before I posted the second time, but then it has a link to "Non-commercial use" licence and a price for each image you want, that's why I'm confused

    • 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.
