Paul G., that looks to be a great web site. Thanks!

Actually wasn't a joke earlier - it would be great to read a translation of the old butcher's citations. The bureaucracy being what it was one would think that they’d have been written. After all, no one was a Tsar, no one could officially just grant themselves things. The right forms must be filled out, signed and stamped.

“I’ll be home a bit late tonight dear.”

“Why, what are you working on?”

“Writing the citation for the Leader’s latest award. For some reason I get the feeling I’d better make it just right…”

:D

Re: Stalin's awards

This is part of a list of Stalin's possessions at the time of his death. Listed is "Order of the Red Banner, old model, #400."

Where did that come from?

Re: Stalin's awards

Order of Combat Red banner has an interesting history. Some researches say that Stalin's first ORB had been changed to number 3 (duplicate) :) .

Re: Stalin's awards

Very nice way to show it, thanks! :thumbsup

BTW I wonder why he only got the XX RKKA medal and not the 30th anniv. one too.

Unlike a highly regarded XX RKKA, 30th anniv. was given to everyone in uniform. We can speculate that since the latter was so insignificant, Stalin didn't care whether he got it or not.

Stalin was awarded rare republican orders: Tuva Order of Republic and Buhara Order of Red Star 1st Class. Scans of both orders are attached for your viewing pleasure.
