Russian ID of some sort....

Article about: What do they actually call this thing? I tried searching with terms like "WWII Soviet ID book", but never could find anything that looked like it. It appears to be real, and I was

    I would say that the stampings is artillery, but seems like he served in the headquarter of Rifle regiment first, then sky-reconnaisance in regimental stuff in both units his service was a typewriter... Not a bad place in the war, even a participant of Finnish war. The latest inscription looks like a Mortar division, but I can't recognize his job there.

    So he was a Desk Jockey then. You're right though, from what I know of Soviet battle tactics during WWII, I think a desk job would have been the safest place to be.

    Thank you. This website is turning out to be far better than most WWII collector sites I have found. Last one I tried turned out to be a thinly disguised Neo-Nazi hangout.

    The translator I use (Babel Fish) translates things literally. But I assume this means that whether he was a desk jockey or not, he also saw Combat?

    What is a Stab Battalion? Shock Troops? Or does it mean something else, like penetrating behind enemy lines?


    отдельный минометный батальон, командир миномета
    separate mortar battalion, the commander of the mortar

    минометный полк, командир ***, сержант
    mortar regiment, the commander of ***, the sergeant

    командир ***?, сержант
    the commander of ***? , the sergeant

    --------------------

    Демобилизован 10.45 г.
    It is demobilized by 10.45 g.

    Better to use the Online-?????????? ?????? ???????? ?????: ??????????, ???????, ????????, ???????????, ?????????, ??????????? ? ????????????? ?????., it tranclate more accurate.
    The word Десант (desant), does not translate as paratrooper ( only if it will be Воздушный десант- then it's paratroopers) I suspect the desant will be translated as a mobile unit which is sent to the tranchlines or in to rear positions before the other troops coming

    Combining "Stab Troop" with "Mortar Battalion", I wonder if he was a forward observer, calling in mortar fire from behind the enemy lines?

    I tried your translation site. Does it say the same thing as what I wrote in English on the last post?

    Объединяющийся "Отряд Удара" с "Батальоном Миномета", интересно, был ли он передовым наблюдателем, звонящим в огне миномета из-за расположения противника?
    -----------------

    When I put the translation from your website into Babel Fish, it says this...

    United " Force Of [udara]" from " By battalion Of [minometa]" , it is interesting, was it progressive-minded observer, who rings in the fire of mortar because of the arrangement of enemy?
    ----------------

    I don't recognize [udara] or [minometa], but the rest of it is close enough to understand in English.
