translation help
« on: September 27, 2005, 10:25:50 AM »
I would need your help in translating these three Russian orders (decorations) into English and/or - if anybody could - into German:

1) zolotaja medal‘ s almazami v pamjat‘ vosstanovlenija Zimnego Dvorca ?

2) znak otlichia „za Voennyj Dostojnstvo“ ?

3) pochetnyj chlen Imperatorskogo Moskovskogo obshchestva sel’skogo chozjajstva (is this actually a kind of award?)


Are there any pictures of these awards on internet?


Thanks in advance

Leopold
