MVD Policeman’s badge, Estonian Soviet Socialist Republic, #4651.  Period:  Mid to late 1940s.  This is the period when Stalin’s NKVD shipped thousands of Estonians to the Siberian gulags.  Time to forget, but never forgive.

This ornate silver vodka shot was presented to an Estonian couple on their 50th anniversary.  The silver vodka shot was manufactured in Tallinn during the early 1990s.

The mark of a star surrounding a hammer and sickle and 875 is the Soviet proof mark for silver. The other marks refer to the Estonian manufacturer of this silver shot.

ESTONIAN TANK BATTALIONS OF THE RED ARMY

“For Soviet Estonia”

Estonian T-34-85 tank brigade drawn up in July 1944, prior to assault on the Estonian border town of Narva.  This appears to be a propaganda photo.

“Lembitu” T-34-85 tank column lined up for a ceremony just prior to the assault on the German city of Konigsberg. One of the more famous tank units of the Red Army.


Lembitu was an Estonian national hero who fought against the Germanic Teutonic Knights with the Russians in the 12th Century.  Lembitu was often cited by the Russians as having made common cause to fight the invading Germans, and was consider a hero by the Russians.

There is an ongoing argument among Estonians today as to whether the veterans of the Red Army should now be as honored and venerated as those who fought for the Germans.  Each side has their own emotional arguments along the lines of who did what to whom, and whose side was right.


This book is full of drawing by Estonian soldiers who served in the Red Army.  These are interesting drawing that depict ordinary life of these soldiers from simple tasks such as siting on a bed and pulling on their boots to combat scenes.
