    Yeap, we see why!
    Auke works very fast. He did the research for mine in less than a week
    I'm very glad that Auke can do this. Guess that the first thing one thinks after getting an Order of the Red Star is doing the research (one thing completes the other)
    Congrats on your item, Adrian

    Some info on the "SB" aircraft he flew. In Russian: Скоростной бомбардировщик – Skorostnoi Bombardirovschik – "high speed bomber", also known as the Tupolev ANT40.

    PSC «Tupolev» - ANT-40 (SB)

    Very nice award Ade and equally nice citation. Would be great to track down his other numbered awards to complete the set however the chances of that happening are pretty slim.
