    This man is a cadet/pupil in a military academy. I believe that ОВУ was the Voroshilov General Staff Academy.

    But don't quote me either, I'm quite rusty...

    As I am not mistaken I think that Wagriff is right. The soldiers on the pictures are quartermasters. OBY = Обозно вещевое управление - Quartermaster supply directorate.

    I think Richie was absolutely right.

    ..On cadets collars sewn yellow filaments or yellow paint was applied on a cliche encryption Military School.
    I do not know exactly what decoding in your case, but in any case- it is a military school.

    ОВУ - The first letter - "O" - is a city, in which the school was (I think it's - Omsk city) ; the second - "В" - военное (military); third letter - "У" - училище (school).

    For example:

    ВВУ - Виленское Военное Училище - "Vilensk city military school"

    There have been many versions of these abbreviated names.

    For example:

    ЛПУ - Львовское Пехотное Училище - "Lvov city Infantry school"

    АТУ - Авто Техническое Училище - "Auto Technical school", located in Leningrad.

    I think so, Arthur.
    Kiev Tank Technical School, S.K. Timoshenko named - abbreviated "КУ".

    Interesting to know this.
    I got my information from a 1950's US army manual for Soviet army abbreviations. It is coincidence that most of the military school abbreviations in this topic are also listed in this manual but with a different explanation.

    Yes, it's just a abbreviations coincidence.

    Here is a small list of some abbreviations:
