    Default Victory over Japan Medal

    Managed to pick this up for a steal. Looks like a good 2nd variation medal.

    The Victory over Japan Medal was established on 30th September 1945.
    It was awarded to servicemen and employed civilians of the Soviet Army, Navy and Ministry of Internal Affairs troops (MVD) who participated in battles against Japanese forces during the period of 8-23 August 1945, while in the ranks of the 1st and 2nd Far East Transbaikal fronts, Pacific Ocean Navy, or Amur River Flotilla.

    After Germany's defeat, its military ally, Japan continued the war with Great Britain and the U.S.
    Large concentrations of Japanese forces threatened the Far East territories of the USSR so in accordance with the Yalta Agreement of 8 August 1945, the USSR entered into war against Japan. Japan surrendered 22 days later. This signaled the end of WWII, on 2 September 1945.

    This medal is made of brass with approximately 1,831,000 being issued.

    Suspension and ribbon are recent replacements, but the medal is original.

    Indeed Harry these can be purchased for a small amount of money.
    I also have a few soviet medals in my collection but prefer to get them as a set with their document.
