Re: Bravery Medal,Karelian Front,536601

Now that's what I call a complete posting of award information (with the only exception being the awards themselves - which I know is often impossible). Thank you for all of the specifics.:thumbsup

Re: Bravery Medal,Karelian Front,536601

This is one of four ARC and Citation groups that were translated that Eric sent me. So, I don't have the medals but the research is what I need for the Soviet Medics book which is on the back burner until I can afford to get all of the research and documents that need researching researched and translated. Once all of them are researched and/or translated I should have enough to start writing that book after I finish the Soviet Campaigns book. So I still need documents and/or research to Soviet Medical Personnel.

:D Doc
