YOU ARE offerDING ON a rare early war - WW2 field formation uniform of a Russian Soviet Red Army's infantry battalion Commissar political officer.
This nearly complete uniform consists of the following items:
1. Model 1939 gimnasterka tunic. In khaki color piped in raspberry color (distinction of Rifles infantry) with two front pockets and metal regulation buttons. Maroon color tabs with two square rank devices for battalion Commissar political officer and Rifles infantry branch devices. Cloth stars on both sleeves as Commissar political officer designation. A silver order of the Red Star (with one repaired ray and not original to the uniform) is affixed above the left brast pocket. Stamped with 1939 manufacture date
2. Khaki field officer's galife breeches. Stamped with 1943 manufacture date
3. Service visor cap. Raspberry band with khaki peak, both piped in raspberry. Enameled metal early war star cockade with separate hammer and sickle. Stamped with 1941 manufacture date
All items are in very good original condition, no holes and very minor staining, but the cap's cockade has some enamel damage and the order star has one of its rays professionally repaired.
A Bit if History:
In the Red Army, the political commissars were appointed by the Communist Party to military units for the purpose of direct political propaganda, and to ensure that Party decisions were implemented. In this system, each unit had a political officer who was not responsible to the normal military chain of command, but instead answered to a separate chain of command within the Communist Party. The purpose of such a system is to ensure the loyalty of army commanders, and to prevent a possible coup d'etat. The political commissar had the authority to override any decision of the military officers, and to remove them from command if necessary. Therefore, sometimes the commissar usurped the functions of a regular military commander, but that was almost never necessary — the mere presence of a commissar usually meant that military commanders would follow their directives, and the day-to-day duties of the political commissar generally involved only propaganda work and boosting the morale of the troops.
