Fake Badge "Voroshilov Horseman".

He also instigated these badges besides the shooters...may have been a bad General but an inspiration for gongs.

Can you please provide either subtitles or full translation of your quote. I have not the faintest clue what and who you are talking about. Sorry :(

Sorry for being cryptic

Voroshilov Horseman is the correct title, General Voroshilov was a very good shot apparently and the Voroshilov shooting badge is more commonly seen bearing his name.

I think there is a picture on this sight somewhere, probably amongst the voroshilov shooter section.

The Finns gave him and his Army a good slapping and he was replaced.

But he did well under Stalin’s patronage and survived all the purges....which proves that kissing butt works everwhere.

Voroshilov Horseman

Established in 1936. Silver-plated brass and enamels.
Guys what do you think of this Voroshilov Horseman Badge currently on offer?
My personal view is that it is a fake, it looks like it was made yesterday.
Notice there are no rays under the blue enamel and the red enamel is too dark.

Eddie.

Eddie,

I agree, the badge is a fake. I should also add that the detail is very poor.
