This quiz has an interesting theme. I am sure you will like it!

12 men are involved. Of course there were more, but those 12 played prominent roles. Here they are:


#1


#2


#3


#4


#5


#6


#7


#8


#9


#10


#11


#12


The men are connected by a “thingy” and there are two important dates.


So I want to know


  • the names of the 12 men
  • the “thingy” and
  • the two dates, please.

Have fun and a nice weekend!

I'm preparing for a trip, and won't be able to help much this week, but to get things rolling, #8 is Nikolay Gerasimovich Kuznetsov.

Don't let my better half see me doing this instead of packing...

#1 Sergei Georgievich Gorshkov?

Kuznetsov was more known as a submarine man that naval aviation during his life time and in WWII in particular. So my guess is about Soviet subs operating in the Baltic Sea in 1943-45 time period?

But yes I remember seeing his face hanging off the wall of the XO's office on board the Kuznetsov in 1997-99? time period.

I think, based on the photos, that the solvers should not forget that Kuznetsov worked as naval attache in Spain during the Spanish Civil War. Just call it a hunch. I can't get enough search time now to follow it up.
