Red Army soldiers at the entrance to the dugout in Stalingrad. A soldier standing by a samovar has a budenovka on his head. The presence of a sentry and a samovar are signs of a headquarters, and the slope looks like the bank of the Volga.

A fairly well-known series of photos: the execution of an unknown Soviet intelligence officer by a Finnish officer. From the execution, the Finns arranged a whole photo session. Is he worthy of respect who laughs in the face of his own executioners?

It will be necessary to read at leisure "Provisions on military crimes" of 1927, article 22, which states about surrender. Many believe that all captured soldiers from German camps were sent to Soviet ones, even though this is a lie. Moreover, even we believe in it...

“In certain cases, the situation on the battlefield may develop in such a way that resistance is essentially impossible, and the destruction of soldiers is aimless. In these cases, surrender is an act that is permissible and cannot be prosecuted."

Здесь, в деревне ЛУЖКИ немецкое зверье сожгло 32 дома и расстреляло 12 жителей. Список погибших.
Боец, отомсти фашистским извергам!
 
The guerrillas are going on a raid. The photo is interesting because the partisans are armed with melee weapons (up to checkers) and British Lee-Enfield rifles. Most likely these are cavalrymen - the soldier on the right is repairing the saddle. Li-Enfields got the Red Army from the British army in 1919 in the Russian North, as well as from the arsenals of the Baltic countries, then they were stored in warehouses, after the first defeats of 1941 they began to enter service with the militia. It is known about the extradition of Lee-Enfields in September 1941 in Leningrad to the units that fought on the Nevsky patch.

Vyborg June 20, 1944
On the back there is an inscription in pencil: "The fighters are mortally tired of the rapid march. Sleep catches the winner here, on the streets of the city. Guardsman V. Kurilov, the first of ten to run into the city, immediately after the battle fell asleep on the pavement." Photo: Mark Redkin

Odd looking the way the sling is attached both on the butt and foregrip not a typical WW1 era SMLE or WW2 era Lee-Enfield.

I noticed a lot of interesting things on the chronicle, thanks. Interestingly, the Japanese officers had flashbacks from the times of Khalkhin Gol? I saw early T-34s, SU-76s with closed wheelhouses, as well as an American Ford truck. I also found the KV-1, but the excerpt seems to be not from here. Many thanks. In general, it seems to me at times blasphemous that so many equipment were thrown along the way. On the one hand, a large amount of equipment saved the lives of soldiers, on the other hand, the material part is very sorry.

About Budyonnovka. Honestly, I have not seen her either in Kiev or in Berlin. This is not the most comfortable headgear, albeit beautiful. But in the Far East, there are photos.

Here you can see soviet commandos destroing bridge over Dnieper and budyonovka with german cammo

Sometimes it seems to me that Budennovka during the Civil War looked more interesting. These large ears and a cavalry overcoat added some kind of romanticism to the figure. Checkers are missing, and a red bow on the chest.

I work at NSHGO. When we go to field trips, I put on a cap with a visor from the OKZK kit. She has very funny curtains-ears, in some ways she looks like a Budennovka. Looks stylish, protects the face from the wind, but in terms of functionality... Mmm.

November 7, 1927. One of the most epic photos of these headdresses. In general, I have accumulated material on 1920-30, is it relevant to publish it here?
