:Cat-Scratch: A 44 year old "Guards Airborne" PRIVATE!!!!! :speechless1:

This is a superb citation. From his times of service, yet another guy who lived years under the German occupation before the Red Army's advances of late 1943-1944.

The stories that these "common" awards tell us! :beer:

Unfortunately I don't have anything else, only his glory and the research for it. I will probably research his red star. I'll update this thread when I know more.

Time for some sleep :sleep:
