Nice motto on it: "Bayonet rules"

I have a unit patch with "America" in Cyrillic. Apparently original too - my grandfather was in the 85th Division after Korea as a captain and his 1SG or SGM was with the unit when it went to Archangelsk.

Very interesting period in history for sure. I know that for my grandparents' generation and even more so their parents the expeditionary forces were a significant reason to distrust the west, even though the exact nature of their campaigns was unknown to many. One of the more iconic symbols of that era are the Mark V's (and others) that were captured by the soviets. There's still one in Kubinka and one on display out east. Fascinating stuff.
Thanks for the vid HR, always like to know more about that era.
