Thank's for all help.

Usually it's a mark for a person who makes this comment. Maybe it's not a writer, but a reporter?
I can see only one name and his initials are not V.S.

Thus, the tanks were devoid of artillery, infantry and, particularly, aviation support.

(I know I changed the sentences a bit too much for some people's taste...)

So, if the context is during the border battles in 1941, it only means that they stayed in the barracks, well in the rear, or rather, in the original position of the division?
Trigger Happy,

Damn good job. Couldn't do any better myself. Andrey is also spot on.

Folks, you can rely on TH and Andrey for any of their future translations, as far as I'm concerned.

Raptor.

Does that help ?
Michel
Perhaps because when the unit was sent to refit, it was no longer available for combat, hence запасный, which can also mean "spare" or "extra". IMHO, резервный would have a more direct implication of being "part of the reserve".

This text appears to be an article in "Vecherny Brest" by someone named Vasily Sarychev. Hence the akronym.

Help with Russian writing

This dollar bill belonged to a B-24 waist gunner interned by the Russians when his aircraft landed at Petropavlovsk on September 12, 1943, following an attack on the Kurile Islands. I am hoping members of the forum can help with the Russian writing on the front and back of the bill. In some instances, I have enhanced the colors to make the writing more defined.

I do not know if the Russian writing is place names or possibly proper names. Information on the American aircrews held by the Russians indicates they were moved about and so these could be locations noted on the bill.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Help with Russian writing

I have several other places/names to submit, but due to the limit on file sizes and uploads, I cannot add any more here. I attempted to link to the images in Photobucket, but I am prompted that I must have a minimum of five posts to this forum before I can place a link in a post. Before I go to any further effort, let's see if I get a response to the two currently viewable.

Actually, the final я seems more apparent in the smaller photo than in the larger one.
