Double Order of Glory Group to IL-2 Shturmovik Aerial Gunner

Recommended Posts


  Currently available at auction in the former Soyuz.  Order of Glory awards to aviation personnel tend to command a premium - even more so in cases of double awards let alone those to Full Cavaliers.  

  Senior Sergeant N. Ya. Pavlenko was an IL-2 Shturmovik aerial gunner.  He was awarded the OPWII, OGII and OGIII.  He was credited with two confirmed shoot downs - a Fw-190 (cited in his OGIII recommendation) and a Me-109 (cited in his OPWII recommendation).  He flew with the 637th Assault (Ground-attack) Aviation Regiment, 227th Assault Aviation Division. 

  The current high bid for this low serial number set is approximately $675.00.
