Shashka ...getting in touch with my white Russian Ukraine roots

These are swords issued to Cossack regiments in WW2...the Soviet side as many Don Cossacks fought for both the Germans and the Soviets...Nana was a Petrov/Petroff depending upon the immigration documents...she spoke fluent Russian and her Mom never did learn English...they immigrated in 1919 as they...Kuban Cossaks supported the Tsar and saw what was coming....anyway...this also goes with my collection of Mosin Nagants.
The enlisted / NCO sabres had this attachment for a Mosin bayonet that you see on the ferrules....this is a 1942 soviet issue and the sword design dates to 1881.
The scabbard is lacquered canvas that has held up well...probably better than the pre war leather.
