And you'd thought you'd found the one gem of truth from the book yes? :D

Oh - now I know! That stupid 'Green Cross' thing from Sven Hassel...

Okay, the only Green Cross I know of is a 1980's road safety campaign and that's it.

If you are willing I can bore you rigid with eye-wateringly pedantic details of various NKVD and MVD insignia, but there's no green crosses - even in the weird and wonderful period of 1935 insignia regs.

You sure? Compared to most of the dreary things that people obsess about on here it's riveting stuff - for one thing, it hasn't all been seen a gazillion, zillion times before.
