    Default Some of my Soviet medal groups

    When it comes to Soviet awards, I prefer groups, documented groups, groups that can be researched. This way, the history and story is maintained and the individual whose medals live for a few years or decades with me can be remembered.

    As eye-candy, I thought I'd share a few of my groups, beaing in mind the "WWII" (Great Patriotic War ) and "military" focus of this forum. (I have other groups that fall outside this characterization.) I may violate my own title and focus and throw in some solo items as well, as time, energy, and reader interest allow.



    Since all these are posted in greater detail elsewhere, I'll just share a sort of "bare bones" approach here. I am always quite happy to respond to questions or comments and add more information as desired.

    Guards Lt-Col. Mikhail Aleksandrovich Tolkachev, 22nd Motor-Rifle Brigade attached to the 6th Guards Tank Corps

    A massive trove of things, and documents, and pictures, and research.

    See: Schwind, No Deed Forgotten, pp. 20-21, 91.

    (Sorry, the first OPW rotated when being scanned -- should re-scan?)

    Guards Major Semyon P. Prokhvatilov, 42nd Guards Tank Regiment

    Documented, researched. Not exactly a "good boy"; from his MMM recommendation:

    However, he now fails to exhibit any initiative in his activities even notwithstanding the low level of discipline in the battalion as well as cases of breaching military discipline by the officers as well as by the NCOs (enlisted). The procedures for standing guard in the battalion, for which he is personally responsible, are not in order.

    Major Vladimir Fedorovich Dubrovin, Deputy Commander of Unit Cadres for Staff of the 1st White Russian Front

    Documented, researched.

    Very much a "staff" type. He may have heard that shots had been fired in anger?

    Guards Captain Vladimir Vasilievich Kulishenko, 156th Guards Brandenburg, Order of the Red Banner, Order of Suvorov Artillery Regiment, 77th Guards Chernigovskii, Order of Lenin, Order of Kutuzov, Order of the Red Banner Division

    He was "there" from the first to the last, no paper-pusher here!

    While I have photos of many of these folks, I haven't been posting them. In this case, however, the visage of the man is too powerful to ignore (the eyes!). At age 22, he had served on the front for three years eight months, been wounded four times, and been decorated five times.
