    Hello Friends, Your know you are my heroes CCCP selection from among aviation I. Kžedub. And also from the ranks of the Navy he was Kuskov. And before the end of the trio of Soviet heroes I had a lot of candidates from the army. I finally found a picture of unknown heroes ..... And I understood that it's a beautiful symbolism. Make an unfamiliar hero to honor all the brave men and women who gave their lives in World War II.
    Titl Hero CCCP gave the title hero to 12,000 beneficiaries. Today, unfortunately their names are forgotten and the vast majority are either never mentioned.
    Why I chose this unknown hero.
    I believe that you will like.
    As the original photograph I was partially unknown which I have already mentioned.

    Thanks guys !
    But perhaps after the French, some others WWII heroes could be made.
    Why not Polish or Czech
    Witold Pilecki
    Unless you are from Poland or a World War II history buff, you may have never heard of Witold Pilecki. Oftentimes we revel in the escapades of military heroes for a while, only to allow their memory and legacy to fade slowly from our minds.

    This may be the case with Pilecki, but members of Poland's Institute of National Remembrance (IPN) are trying to ensure that not only is his legacy preserved, but that his remains are as well.
    Pilecki was born in Russia in 1901. In 1918, he joined a ZHP Scout unit of the Polish self-defense units during World War I and later went on to join the regular Polish Army and fought in the Polish-Soviet War. Although he received the Silver Cross of Merit for his community and social work in 1938, his legacy did not really begin to take shape until World War II.

    He and his Polish Army unit took part in heavy fighting against the advancing Germans during the invasion of Poland. A few months later, Pilecki became the organizational commander of the newly created Secret Polish Army. In 1940 he presented his commanding officers with a plan to enter Germany's Auschwitz concentration camp in order to gather intelligence on the camp from the inside, and organize inmate resistance. When his plan was approved, he was provided a false identity card in the name of "Tomasz Serafiński”, and set out to be captured by German soldiers during a street roundup in Warsaw. He was captured and sent to Auschwitz. When he arrived at Auschwitz, he organized an underground Union of Military Organizations. The purpose of the organization was to improve inmate morale, provide news from outside, distribute extra food and clothing to members, set up intelligence networks, and train detachments to take over the camp in the event of a relief attack by the Home Army, arms airdrops, or an airborne landing by the Polish 1st Independent Parachute Brigade.
    Josef František

    Sergeant Josef František DFM * (7 October 1914 Otaslavice - 8 October 1940) Was a Czech fighter pilot and flying ace World War II Have you flew for the Air Forces of Czechoslovakia, Poland and the United Kingdom. He is famous as the first Being Highest scoring ace in the Battle of Britain.
    We mustn't forget the "little" nations, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Belgium, Norge, Denmark
    So we can find some very interesting and great heroes.
    Lots of work ahead for Pavol, and MMM;)(y)

    My idea, to you, Offo, and to Gordon, would be to make a "miscellaneous" series, with one guy from countries that had a NUMERICAL minor participation. Perhaps with medals plaques of the great powers, to centralize the collection a little and avoid a big mess (and reduce the costs).

    Like you said, Poland, Czechs, Belgium, Norge, Denmark, Greece, Hungary...

    And dont forget Brazil. I would have some suggestions and material, for both pilots and soldiers. Some awarded with the Silver Star, the Croix de Guerre avec Palm, or the Order of the British Empire. :)

    This is a great idea Palo.The Soviet Union must have had so many soldiers in WW2 and such a huge country it would be difficult to keep records. A very fitting tribute to an unknown hero. Great likeness to the photo.

    He survived, escape from this camp, help the resistance and fight in Varsovia.
    He was later killed by the Russian (NKVD) as spy from the west.
