    Default The Kids in Uniform

    Photo is dated 1944. Believe these two are the sons of the officers wearing good tailored uniform with their fathers pre-1943 collar tabs attached. This has been a sort of trend in officer's families at that time.

    Nice and a unique photo.

    I wonder if there are photos of "sons of the regiment", orphan boys who we're 'adopted' by Red Army units. Of course I've seen the most usual ones, but I've never seen amateur ones in circulation

    Look at the 1,000-yard stare on that kid. Very sad to see.

    Some more:

    1) A "son of the regiment" wearing the Red Star for bravery, surrounded by his admirers. "Sons of the regiment" were orphans adopted by Soviet regiments, and were looked after like the soldiers' own sons. They lived with the soldiers and fought alongside them in front-line actions. After the war, they found it difficult to adjust to civilian life, the company of other children and to children's activities.

    2) 17-year old Ivan Philippovich Kuznetsov, the youngest Full Cavalier of the Order of Glory. Spring, 1945.

    Please do post more. I'm very interested in these Sons of the Regiment, who look very alert. Where can I get more info on them? Are all 3 of those medals on the 17 yo the same order?
