    Default Order of the Red Banner of Labor

    Ade has started a very nice thread on the Badge of Honor. We should probably have one on the RBL as well.

    While, strictly, not "military", we need to remember that not all of the winning of the war was the result of what people in uniform did and that the efforts of workers made a big difference in the defeat of fascism.

    Unfortunately, so far, research on these awards is a matter of luck, and, for most, research is a dead end. Some day that may change.

    I'll thow out some singles and groups and others, please, join in.

    Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic: Order of the Red Banner of Labor, type 2

    Not documented, but the number (301) checks out in Kutsenko's book as having been awarded to I. Kh. Altynbaev, Chief of Police Criminal Investigations Department.

    He was one of only TWO individuals to receive the order twice.

    1- #139 October 1929
    2- #301 November 1931 (he was the first person to get it twice)

    Documented and researched (a bit). She was a schoolteacher from Ukraine. A 1939 award.

    An unusual award, has its "Paul Papers".

    Ivan Pietrovitch Poletaev

    Documented, but not much is known about him. The group is also broken, missing an Order of Lenin (213801) and a Medal for Distinguished Labor (69650).

    Still, a nice surviving pair

    Red Banner of Labor - 6723 (1939)

    Red Banner of Labor - 180087 (1951)

    With documents and a photo (nice, sometimes, to put faces to these things?).

    Who was he???

    Pavel Alexandrovitch Kashurets

    Red Banner of Labor, T5 V2 - 274699 (1953)

    Medal for Valor - Unnumbered (1967)

    Documented, but research elusive. But the ukaz for the gallantry medal is one for surviving Civil War veterans, so . . . ???

    Enough for now.

    Actually, it was maybe more than anyone wanted.

    I think having the photo of the original owners is great and seeing the medals in the actual photo is even better.

    Thanks once again for sharing all of these!

    Cheers, Ade.
