On October 30th, 2011, they celebrated the 95th anniversary of the Brusilov Offensive by reconstructing the great battle of WWI.
Before the battle the participants gathered together to listen to some instructions of the coordinators.
At that time they really carried shovels in this way. It was easy to reach and protect the body.
A copy of the first armoured vehicle put into mass production.
According to this officer, the monogram on the shoulder strap is original.
