    Default Photo - Captured Russian Flag - What's on it ?

    Hello Gentlemen,
    I've just bought a lot of WW2 Gebirgsjäger 99 Regt. photos, a large number of them were taken in Russia 41/42. On one a group of Gebirgsjäger soldiers are holding up a captured Russian flag. Could a member be so kind and translate for me what is on the flag.
    Regards
    Alec

    Hi Alec, it is a Soviet Young Pioneers flag. The Soviet version of the Boy Scouts or the HJ.

    It roughly reads:

    To struggle for affairs
    Lenin - Stalin.
    Always ready!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade,
    Thanks for the prompt reply. Does it say where the Young Pioneer Group came from, i.e. City, Area, ?
    Regards

    Hi Alec, no these are just generic banners.

    Cheers, Ade.

    "...Be ready!" I'd say.

    "Always ready!" - is a reply.
