He's dead.

The clues are in the clues:

2) Were they 'aiming' to paint the town 'red'

3) 'Out of sight'

4) His tipple was probably a 'shot' of 'vodka'

No.

My person was awarded a heroic title when Boris Yeltsin was still a child.

No.

My person received the same award as Ivan Konev.

And don't forget clue 1:

He was portrayed in a novel and on the big screen.

YES!
Lots of good guesses from everyone.

Well done Foggy.

1) The novel was 'War of the Rats' by David L Robbins (one of my favourites)
The movie was 'Enemy at the Gates'

2) Were they aiming to paint the town red? = He was in the Red army at Stalingrad

3) Out of sight = He always was.

4) His tipple was probably a shot of vodka = He was a Russian sniper.

5) He was awarded the title 'Hero of the Soviet Union' in 1943

Your turn....

The ballet dancer or the racehorse?!

Unfortunately both are wrong.


Ah, so it wasn't Nureyevinski then.

It wasn’t Nureyev or Nijinsky.
Both are racehorses.

Both were ballet dancers too, so that’s all four answers wrong!

PS I’d never have got the answer!

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
