Posted in 1945 + Medals with tags , , on May 4, 2013 by The Dude

Flag_of_the_Soviet_Union.svg(Russian: Орден “Материнская слава”) was a Soviet civilian award created on 8 July 1944 by Joseph Stalin. The 3rd class as here was awarded to women who successfully raised 7 children. Get that for me Deirdre.This one is numbered 2716656. Since only 2,786,000 of these were awarded, this is obviously a late award.
