Monetary allowance during the Second World War
The first orders about the remuneration of servicemen for the successful solution of combat missions were signed by Stalin in the summer of 1941, when our pilots flew to bomb Berlin. Since the beginning of August, each member of the crew, bombed on enemy territory, received 2,000 rubles each. Subsequently, such payments became the norm, only in 1943, the differentiation of such material incentives was introduced - crew members received from 500 to a thousand rubles, and the commander, navigator and flight engineer were charged two thousand.
The lowest salary in the Great Patriotic War was at the simple shooters (17 rubles). The sniper, by the way, contrary to popular belief, received nothing for the next shot down enemy soldier or officer. He could reach the rank of sergeant, who had almost half the salary than the rank and file; a sniper sergeant who fought for three years, could count on a 200-ruble salary.However, this profession was very dangerous, these three years were lived by rare lucky ones, therefore, the amount of the salary in this case could hardly serve as an incentive.
The amount of money depended not only on the post, but also on the title. For example, a fighter pilot, the Hero of the Soviet Union, in the rank of senior sergeant, could receive more than the commander of his regiment (about 2,000 rubles) - he received surcharges for the heroic title, guards, front-line and for each departure. The platoon commander (lieutenant) was paid 800 rubles, and the battalion commander (major) 1100 rubles.
Some of the partisans, too, fell. True, it was the leadership of those formations that were part of the Central Headquarters of the partisan movement — they did not put unregistered avengers on the military money allowance. Partisan platoon commanders and the leadership of the detachments were charged at least from 500 to 750 rubles. They could add for a disabled unit of German technology (for example, a train with ammunition and manpower).
By the way, the material encouragement for destroyed planes, ships and other means of transportation is a separate item of expenditures of the military budget of the USSR to the Great Patriotic.

For the destruction of an enemy destroyer or submarine, the commander and navigator of the Soviet ship received 10 thousand rubles, and each crew member received 2.5 thousand. Hitler transport workers (three and one thousand rubles respectively), patrol (2 thousand and 500 rubles) and tugs (one thousand and 300 rubles) went down in terms of prices.
Wrecked tanks were cheaper - the commander of the gun and the gunner were supposed to receive 500 rubles each; But very many gunners were never destined to see this money - they died in the very first battles.

In the Great Patriotic War Voentorg worked with his avto-stores, traveling to the front line. Soldiers and officers could buy various everyday trifles - shaving accessories, threads, needles, envelopes and paper, pencils, and more.
Wartime was harsh, including in terms of price policy - everything was very expensive. If in Voentorg a bottle of vodka cost 11.40, then in the rear its price could reach 800 rubles. In general, prices have increased by more than 10 times compared to prewar ones; the price of a loaf of bread in the cities soared to 500 rubles.
Many officers sent their cash certificates home to financially help families.
