    That is a sweet helmet.

    For reasons that are unknown to me, I do not or never have owned such a nice thing.

    Kudos to you Joe.

    Thanks, Richie!

    Once I got the Red Star researched and figured out that it belonged to a Guards T34/85 driver who had seen a lot of action, I knew I had to get a helmet, goggles, Guards badge, and a little T34.85 tank model to honor him.

    Here is his citation:

    Guards Master Sergeant A.N. Rybakov is a mechanic-driver of a T-34/85 in the 149th Independent Security Company. He has been participating in the Great Patriotic War. During the fighting with the German invaders he was wounded. During his period of service he showed himself a disciplined and brave soldier who knows his job very well. Near Petrakuva and Skurkowitz he carried out several complicated combat missions. Using the gun and the tracks of his formidable combat vehicle he killed up to 50 Hitlerites and took 21 prisoners, including two officers. Masterfully manoeuvring his tank on May 2, 1945 near the village of Schinkendorff, he evacuated his tank from under fire by Panzerfaust gunners and subsequently killed them, as well as up to 30 attacking enemy infantrymen.

    During the most intricate combat situations he does not lose his head, and with all his masterful capabilities he strives to carry out the motherland’s orders.

    He deserves to be awarded the Order of the Red Star.

    It's pretty simple... the worst part is playing the waiting game! There are a few forum members who have access to the old Soviet archives... You contact them, or another researcher, give them the serial number on the back of your Red Star, and then wait a few weeks!

    If you luck out and your Red Star recipient was an officer, you'll receive a service record and that usually includes a photo.

    Here is a photo of a Political Commissar, the recipient of my other Red Star.

    They're like digging up potatos, you never know what you're going to get. My first was awarded to a Lt who was at Stalingrad laying communication cables, and my second was awarded to a Major who served as a radiologist and treated thousands of wounded during the war.

    Nice collection you have Gizmo

    THANKS!

    I've had three Red Stars so far, but sold one off. The other one currently in my collection is attributed to a Political Commissar.
