    Default Documents for the Medal for Development of Virgin Lands

    From The Soviet Military Awards Page, "Established 20 October 1956. Awarded to collective farmers and state farm workers; machine tractor service and supply stations; construction organizations; and Party, Labor Union and Komsomol workers for outstanding services in the development of virgin and idle lands. Workers were awarded for a minimum of 2 years service, beginning in 1954. More than 350,000 young soviets responded to the call of the Communist Party and relocated to the virgin and idle land areas in Kazakhstan, Siberia, the Urals, the Volga region, and northern Caucasus. During the period of 1954-1956, these workers managed to develop approximately 36 million hectares of virgin lands which produced additional yields of grain, despite great difficulties."

    Nice collection, Bill. I've been meaning to get one to go along with my VL medal.
    Have you noticed any variations in the booklets? I seem to remember seeing a different cover to these at one point. Not sure if it was legit or my failing memory.

    Thanks, Eric, and yes, there are some noticeable variations amongst the outside covers, mainly variation in the color and composition of the cover itself, of the booklets, although they, like most Russian documents, all seem to smell the same. Here is the cover to Udovenko's book. I will scan and post the others shortly to facilitate exposition and further comparative discussion amongst those interested.
