    Default Central Forces Museum, Moscow

    So in what will probably be my penultimate thread on my trip to Russia (hope I am not boring you) I will focus on the treasures within the Central forces museum. To say the place is overwhelming is an understatement.

    Firstly the front of the museum, Cadets posing on the T34 guarding the entrance and the main entry lobby.

    Next is the flag that supposedly was the first to be hoisted above the Reichstag, The adler from the Reichskenzlei and captured German standards.

    Some of the exhibits, a famous female sniper (whose name I cannot at the moment recall) who kept the cartridge case when she made a kill, and some impressive soviet awards.

    Thank you Robin they are stunning. Is that a picture of GFM KLUGE adjacent the camo? I don't suppose you have any pics of GFM Friedrich Paulus's tunic, as this would have been the ultimate prize for the Russians,

    Great pic's Robin, thanks!!

    "German awards, not sure about the authenticity of the PAB and the RK so please enlighten me".

    Well, as far as the Grade IV PAB goes, what's the Russian for "Representative copy"???
    'I do not think we can hope for any better thing now.
    We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
    It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
