Hi Gents, sorry if i've posted this in the wrong thread.
Seen a couple of these pop up on various auction sites, not sure whether it a genuine medal or not.
Certainly looks post war and instituted fairly recently and more like a state/minisrty rather than military awarded medal.
Also referred to a Polish Brotherhood of Arms Medal.
Anyone have any info?This medal has been minted to commemorate*the Polish Soviet Brotherhood of Army. Medal awarded to higher Polish and Soviet commanders.
The Battle of Lenino was a tactical World War II engagement that took place from 12 October to 13 October 1943 as part of the Spas-Demyansk offensive operation in the Duki-Ilovets direction near the town of Dribin, north of the village of Lenino in the Mogilev region of the Byelorussian SSR. It was part of the offensive in the 33rd Army (General V.N.Gordov) sector north of Spas-Demyansk, of the Western Front (Soviet Union) to dislodge units of the 4th Army of the Army Group Centre forces.
