I'm always amazed at the stories these medals can tell.

Re: Red Star,3548523,50mm Mortar Commander/Partisan,305th Battalion/Garibaldi Brigade

It really can be Russian roulette. I think I paid €12 for this Red Star in Belgium and it's turned out to be a really exceptional piece. Along with the Bajkonur Red Star and the Nightwitches Male Combat Merits, this is a very obscure find. If I can find this sort of thing, anyone can. Most awards are for desk jockeys, drivers, signallers and artillerists but that's just the way it goes. If you buy enough tickets, you'll win the prize.

Here are maps of his travels, quite a few miles under his belt. When taken prisoner in Crimea, strangely he was sent north to the quickly retreating front, rather than being sent directly to the rear. Seems like a waste of logistics to me. Having the names of the specific settlements is a great bonus. It would be nice to find out just which bridge he destroyed. It had to be one in that area and time. A local historian would probably be of assistance there.

Blank Italian Garibaldi Star of Valor certificate awarded to a Soviet participant of the Garibaldi Brigade. I have a book on the unit and many of its participants in deep storage - maybe it will one day provide more information.

On 11th December 1943 the 83rd Naval Infantry Brigade lost 32 officers at Kerch'. Every one of them taken prisoner. They will have been the last stragglers of the Romanian-German offensive during the Kerch'–El'tigen Operation.
