Soviet Honor Guards

Soviet military honor guards fell into two categories: those officially authorized at selected military garrisons and groups of forces and those formed locally at the "unit" level.

See http://www.stewartsattic.com/undertheredstar/Honor.htm
for more on this.

I was wondering if you have such a uniform, or a CLOUR picture of the honor guards.

Red star rising: Putin revives Soviet symbol

Not sure if this pic helps but an interesting article.

Red star rising: Putin revives Soviet symbol

MOSCOW - President Vladimir Putin brought back the Soviet-era red star Tuesday as the Russian military’s emblem, the latest in a series of restored communist symbols that play to nostalgia but have some people wary of a return to the repressive past.

Once the most recognized icon of the Soviet Union after the hammer and sickle, the five-point star never vanished but was phased out after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Putin’s plan - if backed by parliament, as expected - would return the star officially to the military’s enormous parade banners. Military caps and belt buckles would likely be next.

"The star is sacred for all servicemen," Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said at a meeting of top generals broadcast on television, with a frowning Putin seated behind him. "Our fathers and grandfathers went to battle with the star."
