PYOTR BARABOLYA (1936-1991)

Soviet Navy – the only General in the Soviet Navy

With HARRY COOPER (1-LIFE-1983) Major General PYOTR BARABOLYA is on the right in this photo. A major General in the Navy? Yep – the only time we have ever heard of a General at any level in any navy.

He was very helpful with Sharkhunters in learning some of the history of the Navy of the USSR.

He was a guest here at Sharkhunters HQ and his favorite place to visit in Florida was the huge flea markets where he could buy medical instruments, T-shirts and everything else that was unheard of in the Soviet Union.
