    NKVD Mundir Types

    Short Description of Mundirs for Personnel of the NKVD of the USSR

    1. Mundir Single Breasted (Organs and Militia):

    a. For General Commissars and Commissars of State Security, from diagonal or tufted wool of steel colour. Piping on the collar, front, cuffs and leaf pockets in cornflower colour. Gilded buttons. Stitched in accordance with pictures 28 & 29.
    b. For senior and middle ranking staff, the cloth is khaki. Piping is as for Commissars. Gilded buttons. Stitched as per picture 30.
    c. For junior staff and privates from half-breasted khaki cloth. For junior staff cornflower piping on the collar and cuffs. For privates, no piping. Brass buttons. Cornflower gorgets for junior staff with silver stripe, for privates bare.

    2. Mundir Double Breasted (Military):

    a. For Generals, from wave green tufted wool. Piping as for Commissars; green for Border Guards, cornflower for Internal Troops. Gilded buttons. Stitched in accordance with pictures 29.
    b. For senior and middle ranking staff, khaki wool. Piping is as for Generals. Gilded buttons. Stitched as per picture 30.

    Notes:

    1. For all ranks of the Militia mundirs are dark blue, piping turquois.
    2. Sewing on mundirs with gold plated epaulettes – gilded.
    3. Sewing on mundirs with silver plated epaulettes – silvered.
    4. Buttons on mundirs for junior staff and privates of the Militia are from white metal.

    Here is my newest find. A mundir for a private of NKVD Military Forces. The epaulettes are repros. I need to find gorgets.

    Hello, thank you for this post. Mundir for private or NCO are almost rare. I join a notice about collar tabs. It is not specificaly for NKVD but I think these instructions are available for NKVD too, even if rules are different for officer's collars mundir.
    Do you have stamps insiste you mundir? I have seen mundirs made with this fabric and dated 1951 or 1953. I suppose they are identical to those of the 1945 parades.

    Massenez, thank you for this excellent contribution.

    The tab size and non-commissioned format are identical to NKVD. I have seen examples sewn straight onto the collar and also cloth tabs mounted on card backing.

    Here is the stamp. Made in Kazan in 1952. I have a single breasted Army example in exactly the same fabric, also from the early 50s. It's quite coarse.
