I want to share with you all my Soviet orders and medals. I will share macro views of my groups and over time, present them individually.
This first set is to a cook. The highlights for me in this one are the Belgrade Medal and double Military Merit. The only award that is not long service is the earlier Military Merit. It was awarded for providing tasty meals to the officers and men. Strangely, the two serial numbers on the Military Merit medals are only 80 apart from one another.
