    Document for a Medal for the Defense of Soviet Polar Region, issued on 30 July 1945 to Sergeant Major Aleksandr Aluferov.

    Document for a Medal for the Defense of Soviet Polar Region, issued on 30 July 1945 to Sergeant Major Aleksandr Aluferov.

    The document is of the early type, printed on thinner and somewhat glossier paper than the more common type (same type of paper was also used for the early Defense of Moscow Medal documents). The document shows ink stamp of the Headquarters, Maritime Group of Soviet Troops, and is hand- signed by the Commander of its Reconnaissance Department, Col. Yakov Ishchenko (after the end of WW2, Ishchenko was for a few years the Soviet military attaché in France, got promoted to Major General, served under the GRU Military Intelligence, and taught a "special intelligence" course at the Soviet General Staff). The July 30th date of issue is very interesting: several days later, the Soviet Maritime Group became the Far Eastern Front and attacked the Japanese troops in Manchuria.

    The document is in good to very good condition. There are light stains to the interior pages but they do not affect the legibility of the text or overall appearance of the certificate. The pages have separated along the spine - a common problem with the documents of this type due to more brittle paper - and have been repaired with a thin strip of clear tape.
