  • Guards Formations and Units after 1945

    Greetings!

    I am seeing some evidence that sometime after 1945 the designation 'Guards' was being dropped from the official designation of a unit or formation and used only as part of the honorific title.
    For example, I have seen the 1st Guards Proletariat Moscow-Minsk Order of Lenin, twice Red Banner, Orders of Suvorov & Kutuzov Motorized Rifle Division being simply known as the 1st Motorized Rifle Division.

    Also, it could also be the reason that after 1945 you never seen the same number being used for both a Guards Motorized Rifle Division and a regular Motorized Rifle Division.

    Can anyone help?

    Regards,

    Craig
