    Default Which part?

    This picture is of a man that has appeared twice before on the forums. You can find the other pics under a) German hats section
    and b) Nazi uniforms...

    This is obviously a Soviet uniform,but I would like to find out which area he would have been serving in.

    I do know a little about his past...but not much.

    Just trying to make Ade's brain work...hope he likes a good mystery. lol

    Hi, thanks for posting the pic. It's early here so my brain is only just waking up!

    He wears the 1935 pattern uniform with coloured collar tabs. So the time frame for the photo will be somewhere between 1935 and late 1941.

    Judging colours from a B&W photo can be very subjective. But I would say he wear the raspberry coloured collar tabs with black edge piping, which would make him an Infantryman. Cap piping would be raspberry too.

    The award he wears on his breast will be one of the pre war para military awards of the civil defence.

    Cheers, Ade.
