St. George's Weapon (gold sabre)[edit]

I see in several articles mention of the gold sabre awarded for bravery (St. George's Weapon) but there being no mention that it is also considered to be an Order of St. George award. These recipients also need to be included, albeit under a separate section about the award.

For example, Apollon Galafeyev mentions "a gold sabre inscribed 'For Bravery'". It's more than just a gold sabre. PЄTЄRS J V TALK 18:42, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

The reason is simple, this article deals solely with the modern, current Order of the Russian Federation. I've had a look at the Russian Wikipedia article on the imperial award (where the sabre/sword of honour is mentioned), it's quite extensive and really deserves translation and inclusion into English Wikipedia. Give me a few weeks and I'll do it. It will however be a stand alone article dealing only with the imperial Order. Cheers! Fdutil (talk) 01:55, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for that. I have tracked down and obtained a quite excellent English language reference. I'll take a look at the RU WP article for cues for organizing Russian Empire versus later Russian Federation. PЄTЄRS J V TALK 19:37, 16 February 2012 (UTC)
(Having seen RU WP has two articles...) in view of this being an English language encyclopedia, I think it would be confusing to have separate articles on the historical imperial and current federation awards as its fundamental purpose has not changed and its current instantiation is an updated reinstatement of the imperial award.

I changed the link to the Russian article, it now goes to the current modern award, it used to go to the imperial award. Fdutil (talk) 04:10, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

Agreed. For this article, I think a combination would be best, as I've noted. PЄTЄRS J V TALK 19:47, 16 February 2012 (UTC)
