    Default Assorted Soviet Documents

    I must admit an impulse buy on Fleabay the weekend, assorted documents relating to Kravchuk Vasily Stepanovich, did not pay alot for them.

    I am hoping they are all period and genuine documents, I feel they are, but as always opinions always greatly appreciated !!!

    They look good to me. A Leningrad doc in poor shape and a medals booklet with a CSM.
    The other booklet I assume to be some sort of driver's liscence. Dated '47?
    No clue on the fourth item.

    Nice, you'll have to see if there is an ORS lurking in one of the back pages - Also his name is probably Vasily Stepanovich Kravchuk

    Looks like it although I don't see the name portion of the medals booklet.
    I don't read hand-written Cyrillic very well but I can match up some of the characters, especially the capitolised ones. Spread out all 4 docs and compare the name areas and I think you'll find similarities.

    I think it's a real doc for the medal "Defence of Leningrad". The driving license with a warning ticket (single page white, rectangular one) look convincing as well.

    Great, thanks Bill, what information can be gained from the document? The information I had when I bought them was that in April 1945 he personally killed 6 German soldiers ??

    Nah, no direct killing. The medal is for overall bravery as a military driver, that delivered the supplies to front-line during the offencive operations. Most of the time under heavy enemy fire. Regardless of any circumstances he always managed to deliver ammunition and food on-time etc.

    The document also mentions his medal for the defence of Leningrad. Drivers life was a hell in there. Just imagine driving on the ice of Ladoga to supply ammo and food for starving city.
