Brevet - Written description. Can anyone translate and share with us the exact details ?

"For the bravery with which he led his battalion at the attack on the casemates at Bol. Molokis and for the skill with which he had conceived and manoeuvred the attack for the conquest of hill 80.
Conducting personally the fire of the artillery, through his personal initiative and example of bravery under the terrific artillery and mortar fire of the enemy, he had conquered this hill in 4 hours, dying bravely on duty."

Close up of General Staff Academy badge, General Staff Adjutants aguilettes and collar patches. Note the insignia for General Staff Adjutant. All adjutants wore this type of bullion wire insignia. It is sewn on light blue material. The color of the material is different depending on what branch of the Army a person served in.

Congratulation for the most interesting and complete acquisition that could make envious any serious collector.

I only want to note that blue was the branch of service colour for infantry and rifles (vanatori) regiments from April 1941. Usually this colour was medium blue but in this case it seems that it discoloured. For the wounded chevron the background colour has nothing to do with WW1 horizon blue uniforms. Usually it should be in the branch of service colour but it was often made of any available lace sewn directly on the sleeve cloth
