Major Racz Janos

Oh where to begin.....

First off - is this small grouping to Major Racz Janos - a Major in the mid to late 1960's. Branch of service is not known, but I do assume that it may be Air Force. Until the vaults are opened - no one will know for certain. The grouping is "mundane" and "common" for a young man who was commissioned as a 2nd Lt at the end of his training in September of 1950. He was certainly a "riser" and probably made Lt Col or Col before he retired.

This is the real interesting part - apparently he was an observer with the PRNK Air Force - if he flew combat missions, ground crew, or planning is not known - in my conversations with a retired HUPR AF offcier there were about 100 of these men in the 1950's who went to observe how the West fought an air war. For his service it seems the PRNK awarded him this - the item is clearly of Soviet manufacture - it is numbered 44,076. The case and the interior are clearly Hungarian in manufacture. Unfortunatly the document was lost but it came with the set.
