This is the highest Imperial Russian award that a soldier could ever receive-awarded in four classes andonly for extreme bravery in face of the enemy!
Established in theRussian Empirein 1807, it was granted to non-commissioned officers, soldiers and sailors for their military heroism. In 1856 it was split into four degrees. A person initially received the fourth degree, and would subsequently be promoted to higher degrees for further acts of bravery; one who received all four degrees was calledpolniy Georgievskiy kavaler(full Cavalier of St. George).
Cross of St. George was practically same as Order of St. George, except that it was given to non-commissioned officers. But in 1878 Russia established St. George Medal. This medal was below the Cross of St. George in precedence and was granted for the acts of gallantry in battlefield which fell short of "the extreme bravery in face of the enemy".
