Re: Ivan Kozhedub

You name it ! For the sake of your thread I am attaching a shot of Ivan "the terrible" taken sometime in 1945 along with Evstigneev after Kyril's OBE cross award . Kyril was the WWII leading Ace on the Romanian front .From left to right Olihovsky CO 178 IAP, Ivan, unknown, Muhin, Kyril. Ivan as leading Allied ace was recommended by the Allied Commission for the award of US Legion of Merrit , US DSM, US DSC (AF) and UK OBE Cross, though Red Army chief of staff rejected the proposal upon Stalin's order . Ich wünsche euch auch einen schönen Donnerstag und Wochendend.

2nd shot Sept 1944
3rd shot Pod Polkovnik Ivan "the terrible " in post WWII era

Re: Ivan Kozhedub

Wasn't it rather 178 GvIAP, not 178 IAP?

Re: Ivan Kozhedub

Dear Alex & Gabor,

thanks for the cool pictures.
Would you guess that they soon will add two stars to the scoreboard of Kozhedub's La-7 in the museum ?

Michael
