Congratulations on the Day of St. George Cross

He was given for courage
And loyalty to the native land.
Who has not stepped back,
Held wounded in the saddle
Comrades in trouble did not quit,
And faithfully served the motherland,
Whose honor was not in question
George cross deserved.
Junior ranks only awarded
Cross of George. Yes Yes.
But, it happened, represented
And officers. But then
At the gathering the soldiers were going,
To make a decision.
For them, the rewards were validated.
And if so - they decide.
If you decide - "yes, worthy"
That officer received a cross.
And if - "no, you should not give,"
That is “not to wear rewards to you.
You, my friend, do not blame me,
But so decided at the meeting "
That's how people decided then
Cross sim reward anyone?
With the decision of the soldier company
Did not argue in those days.
But days and years went by
The epoch of the king was over.
A cross by "company sentence"
Continue to assign.
And for simple soldiers at that time
He was a great value,
Than the one that was given by order.
No, he was also dear
But the word of those with whom the guardian
Nes private and bread,
With whom in a downpour, mud, heat and cold
He mercilessly beat the enemies,
With whom he endured thirst and hunger
Whose glance was sometimes stern,
It was weightier and stricter
And their "sentence" was holy
What can honor be more expensive?
And a cleaner war friendship?
And again, sweeping away everything,
Passed-raced times.
Yes, only the memory is alive.
In the ribbon itself,
Which to us about the Victory
Reminds every year.
On the glory of great-grandfathers and grandfathers
Fortunately, we do not forget.
