    Very nice awards, sir. It's a shame about the enamel damage on the Red Star.

    It certainly lends a certain amount of character to the award, wouldn't you say?

    I find the reasons for the awards interesting. Usually it is (or something like) - "WHILE UNDER INTENSE FIRE, COMRADE XXX SHOWED GREAT BRAVERY DESTROYING TWO ENEMY MACHINE GUN EMPLACEMENTS AND A COMMAND POST WITH GRENADES KILLING 37 ENEMY COMBATANTS"...

    Anyhow, good show Garvy. You do have some great schtuff my friend.
