I obtained this NKVD cap at the W&P show,much to the dismay of my fellow 'pit vipers',but they have some times refered to me as 'Kommisar' Jury(the cap fits ect;) and as I worked for the Co-op for thirtyseven years(once known as the retail arm of the socialist movement).

Of course as " Internal Matters" our Comrade will follow,

"We have internal enemies. We have external enemies. This, comrades, must not be forgotten for a single moment"
( Comrade Stalin, 1928)

It uses a lot of 7.62mm X 38 r, Genosse BrianB to sort out such a knotty problem. :twisted:

The Genosse must steel themselves against themselves against the pitfall of bourgeios humanitarianism.
The Security Organs must be as hard as Krupp Steel.

Would that before your war production started to run thin on the additives to stop it becoming brittle as a wrong footed Army Group in the face of Three Fronts Genosse BrianB ?

Well if you ever want to branch out into the world of brightly coloured hats there are others out there. Seeing as you're from Chatham you probably frequent the militaria fair, sometimes i appear there in NKVD Internal troops form.

Not that I know of - I take it you mean a green enamelled star not a subdued green painted one?

No - never. Only red. The green star is only for the polovoy furazhka.
