Dragunskij, David Abramovich, Twice Hero Of The Soviet Union, Colonel-General

Hello

I am going to show a group.

2 Questions

1. Who is it?
2. What are the foreign medals?

regards

Munroe

The prize for the person who gets it right is a steak dinner and as many beers as they can drink in Johannesburg.

Kind regards

Munroe

Some suggestions

Difficult to identify all these orders and medals from these pictures. I have some suggestions:

First box:
GDR - Order of Merit for Country 2nd class
Mongolia - Order of the Combatant Merit

(Order: 1, 2 / 3, 4 / 5, 6):
Mongolia - 30th anniversary of the Victory at Chalkin Gol
Mongolia - 30th anniversary of the defeat of militant Japan
Mongolia - 50th anniversary of the republic
Mongolia - 50th anniversary of the Mongol Peoples Army
Mongolia - 60th anniversary of the Mongol Peoples Army ?
Mongolia - 40th anniversary of the Victory at Chalkin Gol ?

The last two looks like they have switched "ribbons".

Second box:

First row:
Poland - Cross of valor
Poland - Order of Polonia Restituta
Bulgaria - Order of 9th september
? - need a closer scan
? - need a closer scan

Second row:
? - need a closer scan
Cuba - 20th anniversary of the armed forces "Granma medal".
Hugary - need another book!
China - Sino-Soviet Friendship
CSSR - War Cross 1939-1945
? - need a closer scan
? - need a closer scan

I have of course no idea who won these medals.

Dear Eugene

You are correct. Its Col Gen Dragunsky.

But I think you knew I had the group. Now how about the rest of the orders and medals.

regards from a sunny day in SA

Munroe,
I didn't know. I just figure out it was Dragunsky.
If you got this group, it means cavaler is jewish. How many among them were twise HSU? Firts name crossed my mind was Dragunsky. Then I've cheked HSU book for Dragunsky's awards.
The whole process took about 2 minutes.
Eugene

Dragunsky D. A.

Yes,

Well done Eugene, but we still have to work out all the awards. Believe me there are a few that I don't know what they are.

I also have some award booklets for KGB stuff where I do not have the awards.

I will post any close up pictures that anyone requests. Also teh award book if I have it.


Help me identify all the foreign awards.

I could appreciate some help on some of the awards.

There are 4 that I have no idea what they are.

regards from a warm and sunny place

More scans

I have tried and think I'm right about a few.

But I need some more scans of a few of them...see my earlier posting. The second box: the last two in the first row, then the first and last two in the second row. In the fourth box I need larger scans of the three medals on the last row. (I guess they are russian).

BTW, I would love a steak dinner in RSA - as I would love a steak dinner everywhere in the world.
