From tunics to ceremonial uniforms: how the military uniform of the Red Army changed

Despite the fact that we increasingly pay for purchases with a card, cash still remains a part of our life. And, if large bills quickly disappear from wallets, then small change can be stored for weeks in pockets and bags.

It is believed that it is better not to keep small coins in the house, i.e. they attract trouble. But if stored correctly, they will help attract wealth and prosperity to your home.

How to store change to attract money

Reasons for lack of money

Esotericists believe that coins and other money can absorb negativity. You cannot be angry, worried, especially cursing, if you are holding a trifle in your hands.

They say that you can scare off luck if you have a lot of empty containers in your house, your household loves to whistle in your apartment and leave sharp objects on the table surface overnight.

Cash flow stops when you stop spending the money you earned. Savings are necessary and important, but the bulk of your earnings should go to your needs.

It is undesirable to keep small change at home, otherwise everything that you have earned will start to flow away, you will waste everything on unnecessary things. If a lot of little things have accumulated, you need to go to the store one Sunday and spend everything or distribute it to the poor. Otherwise, you will never have large bills in your wallet. Or, alternatively, make talismans out of small things to attract financial well-being.

Coin Talismans

It doesn't matter how many coins you have accumulated, they can make a money talisman. If there are not so many of them, put 1 coin under the threshold or under the rug at the entrance, so that no one can find and pick it up.

Another safe place is on the table under the tablecloth, where they guarantee a steady income. You can keep a lucky coin in your wallet, but only a special one, for example, an anniversary one or given to you by a good person.

If there are a lot of coins, you cannot scatter them all over the house, in prominent places, so you will attract tears and misfortunes.

- years: badges, geometric shapes, budenovka

The prototype of the Workers 'and Peasants' Red Army was the Red Guard detachments, which began to form after the February Revolution of 1917. The Red Guards did not have an established uniform, they were distinguished only by a red armband with the inscription "Red Guard".

In 1919, an order was issued to introduce uniforms. Famous artists worked on the sketches, including Vasnetsov, Kustodiev and others. This is how the heroes appeared, which were later renamed into budenovka. There is an opinion that this headdress was invented back in tsarist times, so that in case of victory in the First World War, in winter "helmets", walk through Berlin with a victorious march. However, according to Vladislav Khabarov, this is just a myth.

The uniform of the guard of Leon Trotsky, one of the founders of the Red Army, deserves special attention. He traveled to the fronts on a special armored train of the Pre-Revolutionary Military Council, he was always accompanied by guards - the best fighters who showed themselves worthy in battles. The guards were dressed in red leather jackets and trousers, and they wore red budenovoks on their heads. And even their equipment was the color of the revolution.

- years: garrison caps, pockets, breeches

The tunics have also changed - they have two pockets in which the soldiers could put cigarettes and other improvised items. As for the trousers, thanks to the French General Breeches, the trousers in the tsarist army turned into breeches with a wide part on the hips and a narrow part on the shins. A small pocket was sewn into the upper part of the pants, where a mortal medallion with the initials of the soldier and the branch of the army was placed.

- years: shoulder straps, earflaps, single-breasted uniforms

By 1940, the military uniform remained practically unchanged. As winter clothing, a single-breasted overcoat with a turn-down collar was relied on, on which there were buttonholes in the color of the military branch and insignia. Quilted jackets and wide trousers were also sewn. In the cold they wore caps with earflaps and "helmets" on their heads, after the Finnish war they completely abandoned Budenovoks.
