Experiences of a Russian Tanker in WWII

At our April IPMS Toronto meeting, we were lucky to experience a seminar presented by Serge Kaznadiy who spoke about his father, Ivan Kaznadiy.  Ivan was a machine-gunner in the Russian T-34 tank in 1943-45, then patrolled Austrian forests on a British Lend-lease Valentine tank in 1946, and was also a cockpit gunner in the Russian Petlyakov Pe-2 assault plane in 1947 in Northern Russia.

Below you can find Serge’s presentation in PDF format, containing a treasure trove of rare photos and notes of his father’s service.  Thank you again for a great presentation!
