Re: Confused about this Order of the Red Banner...
Not all fighters of Red Army became participants of the Victory Parade. Some of them have no place on the Red square (approx. 11 mln.) In my opinion, there is no rewarding immediately during Parade. Replacement has been made beforehand. Bearing of awards of the old (screw) types did not correspond to currently in force army regulations. It is bad, when on the main parade of the country, epoch all soldiers are dressed in the different uniform (one in old-fashioned, others - in new, the third - in quilted jackets and leg-wrappings) and wearing different types of same orders. All should be IDENTICAL as a single powerful concentrated force!
