Re: Edits to Mekhonoshin’s book or new badges

More Documents – Early CEK documents mention that the Committee was the Council of Workers, Peasants, and Red Army Deputies. (It previously included Cossacks but they largely sided with the Whites and were eliminated.) The following documents will track the career of a Red Army Deputy, Nikolai Ogarkov, later Marshal of the Soviet Union. We will be including 6th, 7th, 8th and candidate document for 11th Convocation.

The standard practice was that the Deputy Commander of a Military district would be elected/selected to be a member of the Supreme Soviet of the Republic. The Military District Commander would represent the Republic in the USSR Supreme Soviet. That is the case here as Ogarkov was promoted to Deputy Commander Belarussian Military District in 1963.

The first pair of pictures is of a document and badge for Belarus 6th Convocation. Note: Soviet (SAVET) spelled with an “A” under changes implemented by Khrushchev. Note also, Ogarkov wears a single star. He was promoted to Lieutenant General during the year. Note also in Belarussian, Nikolai is spelled with an “M.”
