    It's unlikely, but there is a small chance. Have a look at these posts: http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/orders...51-a-259061-3/

    In either case, $23 was a bargain.

    Well, as I wrote in the original topic, it seems to be an original group. All that's missing is the document for his 20th Anniversary of Victory Medal (and possibly also a Victory over Germany Medal with document). I looked up his citations online and he enlisted in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi, served as a Private in a howitzer regiment and later as a Sergeant in a 76-mm gun battery of an infantry regiment. The recipient's name is Georgy Levonovich (Leonovich) Mudzharashvili / Mudzhirishvili / Mudzhirashvili / Mudereshvili. Four different documents and four different ways to write his name... The Soviets definitely had trouble transcribing Caucasian names.

    The OG3 was awarded for displaying exceptional bravery; he crossed a river with the very first infantry units, and when the gun commander was put out of action he assumed command. His gun killed 10 Germans and suppressed a mounted machine gun.

    The MC was awarded for repairing two breaks in a telephone line under heavy artillery and mortar fire, enabling his battalion to keep firing and repel an attack.

    I'm the medal magician.




    Jokes aside, most wartime award citations are in an online database where you can just look them up, if you know the name of the recipient. Where do you think Bill found that MCM citation?
