Description of exhibitA black-and-white half-length photographic portrait of a man in the uniform of the Red Army: a winter, cloth, soldier’s shirt, with two breast pockets with flaps fastened down with buttons. He is wearing a “budyonovka” which has a five-pointed star made out of cloth sewn onto it, and over this there is fastened a metal star. On the back of the photo there is a handwritten inscription in blue ink, which reads: "[nachalo utracheno] Efimovichu Chupurovu ot muzha i papy Efima Ef. Chupurova. Proshu menia ne zabyvaite khot’ izredka vspominaite. sfotografirovalsia ne vazhno D.V.G. gorod Nikolaevsk-na-Amure. Foto Dinamo. 25/II-38g.” [“[the beginning is missing] to Yefimovich Chupurov from husband and dad Efim Ef. Chupurov. I ask you not to forget me, remember me at least occasionally. I was photographed not important in D.V.K, town Nikolaevsk-na-Amure. Photo Dinamo. 25/II-38.”]. The top part of the photograph was probably cut off after the inscription was written on the back.
