Any chance of a first name? That would really help to narrow it down for me.

Thx

Just in, a translation of the bio on Sodnomdarjaa from the Partisan book of bio's. Also here a link to the thread on the Soviet section on Sodnomdarjaa... from whom I have a documented 1920's order of the red banner

A great movie could be made of this!

http://gmic.co.uk/index.php/topic/36164-1920s-order-of-the-red-banner/page-1

========================================

DAMDINY SODNOMDARJAA

(1895-1961)

He was born at a place called Yanzai at the Delgermunh Mount in Noble Ulzii’s estate of Sansraidorj Count’s county of Setsenkhan province (current Choibalsan county of Dornod province). Until the age of 17, he was herding livestock. In 1921, he was drafted to the military service in his native province and transferred to Hujirbulan to attend the sergeant courses. Sodnomdarjaa graduated from the course in 1914.

In 1915, he was selected to a group of 20 soldiers that left Ulzii noble’s county to fight the Chinese invaders and troops of Bavuujav and Jodvoo. In 1921, Sodnomdarjaa visited the capital where he met with D. Sukhbaatar and Kh. Choibalsan. From 1921-1923, Sodonomdarjaa accomplished special missions in Western Mongolia following the orders of Sukhbaatar and Choibalsan. One of his primary missions was the elimination of anti-revolutionary leader Dambijantsan. Since 1923, he worked for the MPRP Central Committee, Council of Ministers, Department of Internal Security, state trade, finance and manufacturing organizations.

My family was poor. Therefore I had to work for others to meet the ends until the age of seventeen. In 1912, when I reached 17, I heard that 28 conscripts from my county are slated to join 1000- strong military unit of Setsenkhan province. I met my nobleman Ulzii and asked him to allow me to join the conscripts. He agreed. In 1913, I was transferred to the capital and selected to continue my service in the capital from the candidates of four provinces. Subsequently, I became one of fifty soldiers selected to attend the sergeant’s course. I graduated from the sergeant’s course in 1914 and was allowed to visit my family for duration of one month.

However, my noble man did not allow me to return to my unit after the expiration of the leave period. In spring of 1915, a group of bandits led by Bavuujav raided some parts of Eastern border regions. I was selected to a unit to protect the eastern borders and took part in several clashes. After I returned from this assignment, I married to a young woman named Deleg. In 1920, I went to the Administrative center of San Beis county where I saw the Chinese invaders for the first time. In order to get familiar with situation in the capital, I decided to meet with Sukhbaatar and visited the capital. However, I did not find Sukhbaatar there but I saw what was happening in the capital. After I came back to my county, I was summoned to the Administrative center of San Beis county. At the center, I was included in to a small unit of soldiers. We spent the night at a Russian settlement at Duruu village where I learned that our unit is joining the troops led by Dugar.

We got fully armed and moved to Choir where we fought with the Chinese soldiers several times. Our unit was separated from the main unit. During this time, we met Khatanbaatar Magsarjav and Naidan Count who told us that Dugar’s troops were mobilized to strengthen the Baron Ungern’s White Guards and summoned to the capital. Our unit continued its mission in Inner Mongolia where we defeated Chinese units many times. We caught up with the main troops near the capital.

Rumors started to spread among the soldiers of our unit. Some said that the “Reds” are moving to the capital. Since our commander Dugar is allied with Ungern, we may suffer at the hands of “Reds”. After that, soldiers started to desert the unit in small groups. We also heard that troops of Governor Jodvoo from Inner Mongolia are moving to fight with us. So our unit moved to southeast to fight with them. I heard that commander Dugar is about to send a letter to Count Gombo-Idshin whose headquarters were at the Moltsog sand dunes. I decided to volunteer to take the letter as his courier.

The reason I volunteered lied in my intent to meet Sukhbaatar in order to make a right assessment of the situation. After I delivered the letter to the destination, I had to urgently come back to my unit. Our unit fought with the troops of Governor Jodvoo from Inner Mongolia. After returning from a mission, I heard that Count Gombo-Idshin is about to send an urgent letter to the Military Ministry in the capital and I asked the Count to send me.

I delivered the letter to the Military Ministry and later met Sukhbaatar. Sukhbaatar sent me with a letter summoning him to the capital. The new People’s Government appointed Dugar to command troops stationed in Zamyn-Uud. I was also appointed to the same unit. After one month, I was transferred to Moltsog HQ where I served until the spring 1922. In 1922, I was summoned by Sukhbaatar who appointed me as the courier-soldier stationed in Hovd province administration. Sukhbaatar also instructed me to gather possible intelligence on the situation in Hovd province. Cout Gombo-Idshin was appointed as the Minister for Wetern Mongolian by the People’s Government. I was instructed to work under his supervision.

In autumn of 1922, Count Gombo-Idshin summoned me and ordered to me to urgently proceed to the Altai mountain range pass at Khushuu trees. My mission was to apprehend or eliminate the white guard officer Alexandrov who was fleeing from Soviets to Xinjiang. I took a native teenage boy Damiran as my guide. I was also informed that a unit of 50 soldiers would be sent to help me later. We caught up with the White Guard officers in Munjav monastery and arrested Alexandrov and another officer there. We took tem back to Hovd where I learned that Alexandrov’s companion was a high-ranking officer who used to command White Guard regiment. The White Guard officers were handed over to the representatives of Red Army and the Soviet military advisor to the Minister commended me a lot for apprehending these officers. The advisor promised to inform his superiors on my mission (May be this assignment and the assassination of Dambyjantsan earned him the Soviet Red Banner in 1931).

I was sent to the capital to inform Sukhbaatar and Military Minister Khatanbaatar Magsarjav on apprehending the White Guard officers. I made to the capital within five days and handed the letters to Sukhbaatar and Magsarjav.

Sukhbaatar received the letters and instructed me to return to Hovd but warned not rush. He suggested that I make to Hovd within twelve days in order to get some rest. Sukhbaatar also instructed me take a German rifle with 10 cartridge magazine from the Hovd Ministry HQ as a sign of his appreciation. I returned to Hovd on September 29 and handed Sukhbaatar’s letters to Minister Gombo-Idshin and Chief of Department of Internal Security Baldandorj. At the same meeting, Minister Gombo-Idshin handed me a classified letter. I do not know when he received this letter. The letter contained a secret order of the Minister of Military Ministry that read “In order to eliminate anti-revolutionary Dambijantsan, the special meeting of the Council of Ministers set up a group tasked to eliminate Dambyjantsan and his entourage. The group shall consist of a commander of a unit in Tsetsenhan province Dugarjav, Commander of a unit in Tusheethan province Hero of the Bogdkhaant Mongolia Nanzad and soldiers of Hovd Ministry Sodnomdarjaa and Dash. Sodnomdarjaa is transferred under the command of Head of Government Special Commission Baldandorj. We inform you to keep the content of this letter secret.” I received a new German rifle and rode to Uliastai town with Baldandorj.

In Uliastai we have developed a secret plan on eliminating Dambiijantsan. On December 23, 1922, Commander Dugarjav, Nanzad, Dash, Davaa, Damba and I left for Dambiijantsan’s stronghold. Chief Baldandorj was planning to aid us with some 300 troops if there will be a need for this. We traveled on horseback from Uliastai to Toli Beis county. There, we left our horses and rode the camels. When we reached Dambiijantsan’s settlement, we pretended to be people seeking his protection. He allowed us to stay in his camp. The next day, we requested Dambiijantsan to visit our ger (Mongolian felt lattice walled dwelling) to bless us and receive a gift from us. When Dambiijantsan stepped into a ger, Dugarjav and Dashi twisted his arms and Nanzad shot him in the chest. I was manning the ger at the entrance and shot a big white dog that attacked me. I also shot at two of Dambiijantsan’s bodyguards and forced them to retreat. I also made sure that Dambyjantsan’s weapons stocks were under our control. We have gathered all residents of settlement and followers of Dambiijantsan. From the second floor of a building I announced the death of oppressive Dambiijantsan and distributed propaganda leaflets.

We have cut the head of Dambiijantsan as a proof of the accomplishment of the mission and stored it in a box for transportation. We also liberated people who were tortured by Dambiijantsan and his men. There were many people whose eyes were removed or crippled. There were several Tibetans, the envoys of Tibetan Monk Banchin Erdene, who were taken hostage by Dambiijantsan. We freed them and provided them with horses and supplies. We also appointed people to confiscate Dambiijantsan’s herds and other property. When our reinforcement arrived with Chief Baldandorj, the close followers and collaborators of Dambijantsan were also arrested. Some were executed on the spot and some were sent to a prsion. We decided to move the residents of the settlement to another place and abandon this settlement.

The Government’s mission was accomplished successfully. The oppressive Dambiijantsan was eliminated and people who were oppressed by him liberated. The documents and belongings of Dambiijantsan were confiscated and handed over to the state authorities in Uliastai town.

Here is the translated bio of another Partisan: Jambyn Dendev. He's not mentioned yet in this thread nor do I have his partisan badge or booklet but I have managed to acquire some other items of him which I'll post later (once finally in my hands).

These Partisan book bio's are a real treasure trove! The other items/info I've obtained on Dendev will also shed more light on various practicalities with regard to the Partisan badge awardees.

========================

JAMBYN DENDEV

(1898-1960)

He was born in a place named Shorov gol at the former Erdenevan county of Tusheetkhan province (current Tsagaannuur county of Selenge province). Dendev lived with his parents until the age of 16. Up to 1921, he was engaged in small farming. In 1921, he enrolled the People’s partisan formations and took part in battles against the remnants of White Guards in western and Central Mongolia. He was discharged from the military service in 1921 and raised animals until 1960.

In 1921, I voluntarily enrolled the troops of Sumya Count whose unit was a part of the People’s partisan formation. The commander of our regiment was Putsag. The Commander of our sub-unit of ten soldiers was Chultem. I recall that Sharav, Dugarsuren, Damba and Dovdon were in my sub-unit.

At first, eleven soldiers under the command of Kh. Choibalsan left the Choron River to fight the White Guards. We passed through the Zelter border point and entered the territory of Russia. In Russia, we reached a place called Gedee Nuga where we were trained in shooting, sword-hitting, ambushing, retreating and marching for a about one month. After finishing the training, we returned to Mongolia and chased the White Guards at a Modon Khul pass. We beat the White Guards and confiscated their horses and other animal herds. After this battle, we traveled to Rashaant Mount in the Mergen Count’s county of Sainnoyonkhan province and we fought with the White Guards there. Choibalsan and Puntsag commanded the Mongolian troops at the Rashaant battles. Red Army regiment of some 600 soldiers commanded by Davydov and Shetinkin assisted us at the Rashaant battle. There were some 300 Mongolian troops that fought against the White Guards at the Rashaant Mount. We lost twelve Mongolians in this battle. I personally knew six of the killed. I recall Sambuugiin Genden of Nomohan province, hunter Sodnomdash of Khyaran and Norov of Erdenevan county who were killed in the battle. I forgot the names of others. We lost the battle at the Rashaant battle. Out of twelve carts with mounted machine guns, eleven were damaged and abandoned. We had to retreat to Russia where we continued to fight with the White Guards. After numerous skirmishes in Russia, we returned to Mongolia and stationed temporarily at the Nomonkhan monastery. Our unit was summoned to fight the White Guards camped at the forest at Dukh Mount. The Dukh forest is situated on the northern bank of Selenge river on the border of Ahai Count and Erdene count’s territory. I learned that some 200 Mongolian troops and more than 500 Russian White Guards fought against each other there. The battle lasted for three days. Choibalsan and Puntsag commanded the Mongolian troops there. I headed a squad of ten soldiers. We have defeated the White Guards at Dukh forest. Two airplanes from Red Army assisted us in this battle. After the battle, our unit returned to Vangiin town (current Bulgan town). I got sick right after the battle. After recuperation, I took part in two battles against the White Guards at a place called Zulegtei in Janjinvan’s county.

Here a group of documents that belonged to a partisan of the 1921 revolution called Yondon Luvsanperenlei.

The group consists of 10 documents:

 

1. 1950s red covered partisan’s certificate. The page with the name of the partisan and other details are well preserved but unfortunately the front page with the photo is missing. Other pages including the partisan’s privileges and rules are present. The documented is dated 1958 and has some personal notes on the inside of the cover dated 1979.

 

2. Red covered soum (Batsumber county of Tuv aimag) people's deputy ID card. It depicts the photo of Luvsanperenlei wearing military officer's uniform with the ribbons of awards on his left chest.  Dated 1967.

 

3. Red covered soum (Batsumber county of Tuv aimag) people's deputy ID card which depicts him on a photo wearing his military officer's uniform with the orders and medals on his chest.  Dated 1969

 

4. Brown covered document of the retired officer of the Military and Public Security Ministry issued in 1959. The document depicts the photo of him with ribbons of awards on his chest. It states that Captain Luvsanperenlei worked for the Border guard and Public security division as Chief of Border guard outpost and Chief of Fire brigade unit since 1921 and retired in 1954.

5. Blue covered document of the member of the fire-fighting and prevention group. Issued by the Department of the Fire-fighting. Dated 1966. The doc also has his photo and notably his partisan badge is clearly visible under the award ribbons.

 

6. Blue covered document certifying that partisan, worker of Batsumber Agricultural Farm and Member of Socialist Labor Brigade Yondon Luvsanperenlei is Honorary pioneer member of high school of Hujirt soum of Uvurhangai province. Signed by the Director and Principal of the school. This document was probably originally printed for awarding the honor students but was converted to this purpose by the school administration. The depiction of the badge of the Excellent student was scratched off of the front cover.

 

7. Large red-covered document of the Honorary Pioneer of Uvurhangai province (#1). Registered as Honorary Pioneer of the province by Pioneer Committee of the same province on January 10, 1974.

 

8. Red covered (gold lettered) ID card of employee of the Department of Police (#21) that belonged to Luvsanperenlei. The ID card is prolonged from 1975 till the end of 1977. The bearer’s photo is removed.

 

9. Red covered certificate of the member of the Socialist Labor Brigade and the Bearer of the badge (#58). The document is issued by the trade Union Committee and Revolutionary Youth Committee of Tuv province.

 

10. Last but not least is his document of the Medal of 25th anniversary of revolution for the medal with serial number 9307.  

 

Unfortunately, no orders, medals or badges came with this group but the pic's indicate this partisan has been awarded the Order of Sukhbaatar, the Order of Red Banner of Combat valor, two Orders of Combat Valor, two Honorary Medals of Combat, Halhin gol badge, Badge of 15th anniversary of revolution and other anniversary medals.

 

From the timing of the documents it appears he was awarded the Order of Sukhbaatar by 1959 which is relatively early - proof that he was a "weighty" guy among the partisans. 

 

Will also be posting pics of his description in the 3 part Partisans book and eventually a translation.

Translation of Luvsanperenlei's bio from the 3-part Partisan biography book - a modest description when you consider the historical events he was involved in!

==============================================================

 

Yondon Luvsanperenlei

(1899-1978)

He was born at a place called Zuuht Bor Toirom of Arjargalant soum of Dornod province. Luvsanperenlei was a servant herder in his youth years. He also served a military service for the Bogdkhaan’s Army and was stationed with a military unit in Dariganga. He voluntarily joined People’s Army in 1921 and took part in the military campaign against Chinese invaders and Russian “White Guards†forces in eastern Mongolia. He continued his military service with the Ministry of Defense and Ministry of Internal Affairs after the revolution. He is a member of the Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party since 1924.

 

At the beginning of 1921, I was conscripted to the Bogdkhaan’s Army and sent to Dariganga region along with other ten new conscripts. We were stationed at the place called Hundlun Bor river.  Our military unit was quite a large one. The Count Undur Dugarjav was the commander of the unit. However we were equipped with outdated rifles.  We received some military and physical training there.  At the end of 1921, Count Undur Dugarjav returned to the capital and the Count Gombo-Idshin took over the command.

And here's another Partisan badge - nr 91, converted from a pinback to a screwback by the owner, the reverse also shows the recycled Badge of the Best Railway Worker relief. It belonged to Partison Lodon and he's mentioned in the big Partisan biographies book series - hope to have this translated in the future to get to know more about Lodon.

Great badge with character! The partisan himself sure looks a but weathered. Be interested to hear his story.

 

On a related matter. There is a great looking partisan badge for sale on eBay right now. $400 opening bid. Sadly I don't trust the seller for 1 cent. That shooter badge sold for $750 and two days later it's back up.

And here's a bit more about Lodon incl. a picture:

Choijilyn Lodon

He was born at a place named Bultgur of Erdenebeis County of Zasagt khan province. His father was a hunter. Lodon, trained by his father, has hunting and tending livestock until 1921. In 1921, he took part in the liberation campaign against the White Russian occupants under the command of Khatanbaatar. Lodon worked productively for many years at the government and public institutions.

In January of 1921, I was summoned by the county administration and was drafted into a 40 men military unit. We were led by a man named Chogdog who took us all to the garrison commanded by Khatanbaatar. Later, we chased the White Russians along the Zereg river and annihilated the unit at the place named Dund Tsenher.  After this battle, we were stationed on the bank of Zumya river. I was a commander of ten soldiers and my commander was Chogdog.  His commander was Damdinjav. Later we moved closer to Ulaangom town (Uvs, province, Western Mongolia) and were stationed at Kharkhiraa Mountains. There, I was often sent to patrol the unit area and also guarded the Flag of the unit. After certain period of time we left the Kharkhiraa Mountains and our unit was divided into two sub-units.  A small number of sick and under equipped soldiers were left at the Kharkhiraa Mountains. Our sub-unit was sent to guard the premises of Ulaangom town as there were rumors that White Russians are approaching the town.

After White Russian units commended by general Kazantsev surrendered to our units, we confiscated their weapons and took them to a place named Khushuu Mod to hand them over to Red Russians.

 Partisan Lodon is the old man on the left in the picture wearing his Order of Polar Star.

Translation of Luvsanperenlei's bio from the 3-part Partisan biography book - a modest description when you consider the historical events he was involved in!

==============================================================

 

Yondon Luvsanperenlei

(1899-1978)

He was born at a place called Zuuht Bor Toirom of Arjargalant soum of Dornod province. Luvsanperenlei was a servant herder in his youth years. He also served a military service for the Bogdkhaan’s Army and was stationed with a military unit in Dariganga. He voluntarily joined People’s Army in 1921 and took part in the military campaign against Chinese invaders and Russian “White Guards†forces in eastern Mongolia. He continued his military service with the Ministry of Defense and Ministry of Internal Affairs after the revolution. He is a member of the Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party since 1924.

 

At the beginning of 1921, I was conscripted to the Bogdkhaan’s Army and sent to Dariganga region along with other ten new conscripts. We were stationed at the place called Hundlun Bor river.  Our military unit was quite a large one. The Count Undur Dugarjav was the commander of the unit. However we were equipped with outdated rifles.  We received some military and physical training there.  At the end of 1921, Count Undur Dugarjav returned to the capital and the Count Gombo-Idshin took over the command. At the same time, Minister of Eastern Mongolia Magsarhurts Dugarjav and Commander Gonchig Bumtsend arrived to our base with their troops. Our unit joined their troops and we fought against the Russian “White Guards†forces and pro-Chinese tsahar Jodov’s troops. Our unit pursued the Russian “White Guards†forces of Baron Ungern and traitor Naidan units at places like Moltsog sands, Badam-ishii steppe and Enger hashaat steppe. We engaged in numerous skirmishes and combats there.  One by one, we forced the enemy units to surrender and give up their weapons. After defeating the enemies, the troops from the capital left us and we returned to our previous base in Dariganga.         

And here's a picture of partisan Luvsanperenlei in a Partisan's book of earlier edition. This pic shows him with all his awards impressively displayed.
