Re: soviet research request
If he was awarded any serial numbered awards, there might be documents in the Defense Ministry Archive, but there is a bigger chance the documents are in the Navy Archive. Alexei (Soviet Authentications by "Nota Bene") does research in both these archives. The research will easily cost $100 though - it's your choice if a $10 document is worth that...
