General Morgunov addressing Military Cadets During the 1954 35th Anniversary ceremony of Kiev Higher Anti-Aircraft and Rocket Engineering School.

Size 6 " x 4 ". In excellent condition, slight scuffing towards the bottom of the image and very minor creases at the top corners. There are traces of glue around the perimeter of the verso from where the photo was once pasted into an album. The verso has an ink stamp and hand-written number and, more interestingly, a hand-written inscription which effectively dates the photo: "Gen. Morgunov, 35th anniversary of the school".

Kiev Higher Anti-Aircraft and Rocket Engineering School is one of the oldest and best-known Soviet higher military schools. Founded in 1919 as First Kiev Artillery Courses, it prepared commanding artillery cadre officers as it grew and became First Kiev Artillery School, then the Higher Artillery Engineering School and finally in 1973, the Higher Anti-Aircraft and Rocket Engineering School. Forty-three of its graduates were awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union.
