I research a lot of things (mainly german documents and Militärpässe from WW1) so I bought my first Soviet award, an Order of the Red Banner. Worth a read.



Order of the Red Banner (number 250XXX)
Awarded to a Guards Sergeant Major of the medical corps, Losev.
He was drafted in August 1941 and served until October 1945. Wounded in total of 7 times in the Kalinin and Baltic fronts.

Award citation:

"Brief and specific description of the personal feat or merits On 23 January 1945, he exhibited courage and decisiveness in the battle against the German invaders in vicinity of the settlement Asite, Latvian Soviet Socialist Republic. Comrade LOSEV has been 6 times wounded in the line of duty on the war fronts. During the engagement on 23 January 1945, he evacuated 50 wounded soldiers with their weapons from the battlefield. During the enemy counter attack, comrade LOSEV actively participated in the fight: eliminated 7 enemy soldiers and destroyed enemy light machine-gun crew with hand-grenades. While evacuating a wounded away from the battlefield, comrade LOSEV was wounded, but didn’t leave the wounded soldier. Only after having evacuated him to cover, LOSEV was himself sent to the medical battalion.
He is worthy of state award “Red Banner” order. "


All awards he received:
Medal “For Bravery” in 1943
Order of the Red Star in 1943
Order “Patriotic war II class” in 1944
Order “Glory III class" in 1944
Order "Red Banner" in 1945
Order "Patriotic War I Class" in 1945
Medal "For Victory over Germany" in 1945

Needless to say is that this NCO was tough as steel.

Didn't they make a movie about this guy? Oh, my mistake. It was Desmond Doss in Hacksaw ridge I mixed him up with this is just his Soviet counterpart.

Eagle and Totenkopf trapezoid for a (SS) panzer M 43 cap.

You can see it was once worn, before it was glued on a photo album or something similar.

A true front fighter.

Note the beadings have almost worn of on the center and the outer corners of the cross are well rounded. The core is cracked in three places. This one really called for my name (or am I the only one hearing these voices? ) when I saw it in the auction and I had to have it.
Awarded K.A.G. with the more uncommon pin setup.

Took the chance to take a small photo session with experimenting involved. Just a small add, some green to the background and it seems like the colours would be alive in a different way. Some examples I took shown here.

A rare medal bar to a volunteer in the "Swedish Brigade" during the Finnish Civil War 1918.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swedish_Brigade

The English source states 84 casualties of the total 400, which is their casualty rate of just the battle of Tampere. The total casualties were in reality half of the strength during the short war.
