Photos The Cold War

"Later I can start unloading the archive on the Soviet army after the war - to tell about everyday life, traditions, army humor and purely Soviet features of service. I will show you a lot of photos, I can tell you about my ancestors, who gave their debt to the Motherland."

YES.....Get busy, you've got a lot of work ahead of you mate!! It's a real treat to see/hear those things, we didn't even get to see much of any of that stuff!!! Awesome!! (Y)
 
Tell me where is the best place to create a topic. Very soon the Day of the Soviet Army, February 23. Yes, and I will have a day off, I will try to summarize. The main thing is that there are more readers :)
