Maybe high command had a tough time believing the 15 to 1 part? :)

Re: Red Star,+GPW,874605

Normsky, I would certainly vote for the ORB, but who knows, maybe an ORS was what a good private wanted because they did look really cool on the uniforms.;)

At the same time, a "secret" mission tended to involve more risk and be of more importance than your everyday "shoot to kill" routine. I guess we would have to know what he did for the second one.:confused:

Hi Norm,

I agree with you - I would have thought that this would attract a higher award. The deeds that led to the awarding of a medal/order seem to vary greatly e.g. just look at the citations for the BMs on site. I guess that, like a lot of things, the awards were subjective. In some locales they were "easy" and awarded lesser awards than others, and vice versa.

Simon
