    My Latvian Great Grandfather worked with the Russians during WWII. We believe he was some sort of engineer, no one in the family is quite sure what he did during WWII. We just know that he was a very bright man and according to my Grandma he was constantly traveling to different countries throughout his life.

    Can anyone identify the medals on his chest? Any help I can get would mean a lot to me and my 84 year old grandmother. She has always wondered what her father did.

    Thank you so much for the information. From briefly reading on these two medals, it seems like you had to be pretty good at what you did to receive these? Especially since my Great-Grandfather wasn't Russian and didn't live in Russia. It doesn't seem like they gave it out to foreigners very often.

    The Medal "For Labour Valour" was awarded to workers, farmers, specialists of the national economy, workers of science, culture, education, health and other to citizens of the USSR, and in exceptional cases, to foreign nationals
