  1. SUKHETSKIY Petr Romanovich, 1926. A pontoon layer of the 108 separate pontoon battalion, 18 motorised engineer brigade, 2 Guards tank army. He received a Bravery medal for the battle of Berlin after 16 April for constructing the pontoon bridge across Spandauer Schifffahrtskanal and passing 27 tanks to the other bank, while under enemy fire.
  2. It just takes 10 years, right? But here is something to cheer up a fellow phalerist! Here is the Red Star awarded to aerial gunner TSIRULNIKOV, who flew multiple mission with the pilot SHCHUKIN from 766ShAP! F.ex. here (see image) they flew the mission on 21 Feb 1945 against the enemy concentration at Groß Blumenau (today Kremnevo) near Koenigsberg. Two interesting airforce related awards! Imagine these were once flown on the same airplane ! These are the photos of aerial gunners training at 766ShAP. And here is the regiment commander pilot HSU ERMILOV with the aerial gunners of the regiment. TSIRULNIKOV is among these men.
  3. Thank you for sharing!!!! Great! Nice citation. Here is the map of KLYUCHNIKOV's separate AA artillery squadron in 1943 about the time mentioned in the citation.
  4. That is to punish the ones who aren't wishing to open their eyes to the light from the torch of knowledge. 😅
  5. If you hold a torch of knowledge, let others light their candles from it... You can find the torch of knowledge on this medal. 😂

  8. Hello, But is not the tracking number recorded in eBay system after you post?
  9. Hey Erik! Welcome back! Nicely done with research!
  10. I am afraid your suspicion is well founded... You should always be very careful and cautious about the awards appearing last in the award booklet. In these case I see different handwriting for both order of Glory entries. Plus online check shows only Red Star for this female veteran. Could you show the reverses of the Glory orders in good resolution?
  11. Hello Paul! I just got a Bravery medal for a man from 79 blocking detachment (Magnuszew bridgehead). But his SECOND Bravery medal from July 1945 is "for removal of AK officers and their weapons". He is information on his FIRST medal, which I have.
  12. Very interesting! Nice citation. Thank you for sharing!!!
  13. Thank you! I am glad for it too. Always interesting when different layers emerge during research.
  14. OAN 37671 to captain FILIN, head of Intelligence of the 747 rifle regiment. Thank you Matthijs Jansen for the great badge! Captain FILIN Georgy Mitrofanovich, 1918-1962. Chief of Staff assistant for Intelligence of 747 Guards rifle regiment (172 rifle division, 13 army, 1 Ukrainian Front). Awarded OAN in May 1945 for the operation to capture a prisoner, held 06 April 1945 in near the town of Steinbach. Before that, the veteran had a rich combat life: he was in a pocket several times and was a partisan. Then back to the front scout. A native of the village of Krugloye, Dmitrovsky District, Oryol Region. This which played a role in his subsequent partisan engagement. In May 1941 he graduated from Bobruisk infantry school. Since 10 June 1941, a rifle platoon commander of 800rifle regiment, 143 rifle division. From June 11, 143RD was be transferred to the Baranavichy area, where on June 27, 1941, it came under a massive blow of the German troops and began to retreat to the east. By the time the division was disorganized and unfit for action. By June 30, 1941, the division was surrounded and acted in the forests, and on 2-3 July 1941, it started to exit towards Berezina river, and by 05 July 1941, the remnants of the division were concentrated in the Dobrush area, having virtually no armament left. On 26 August 1941 defended town Novgorod-Seversky. During September 1941, leads heavy oncoming fighting in the area of Shatrishche (Sumy region). On 30 September 1941, the enemy troops launched "Typhoon" offensive, and the division was encircled in the Meredino-Budsky area, as were all the troops in the same army army. On the night of 09 October 1941, the division, making up the shock group of the army, went on a breakthrough, attacking settlement Negino and by the evening of the same day went into the forest North-West of Sevsk. On 28 November 1941, after stubborn fighting, the division left the village of Preobrazheniye (south-west of Izmalkovo on the Bolshaya Chernava River) and moved south of Izmalkovo, where it tried to organize defense on the Yasenok and Chernok rivers near the village of Koshkino and the village of Chernok. On 29 November 1941, under pressure from the enemy, the division was forced to abandon its line and took up defenses along the Yasenok River from the Yelets-Izmalkovo railway to the Kazaki-Chernava highway. By that time, the division consisted of only 1615 (instead of 14000) men and just several machine guns. Thus, FILIN's division appeared in the native place of the veteran in November 1941, where it fought out of the encirclements. Apparently, it seems, it is here that FILIN loses his unit and after a while gets to the partisans. From November 1941 he was a platoon commander 1 of the Kursk Partisan Brigade. October 20, 1942 awarded the Order of the Red Star for his partisan work. February 25, 1943 of the Central Front under the command of K.K. Rokossovsky, participating in an operation to destroy the Oryol grouping of the enemy, launched an offensive. A number of settlements were liberated, including Sevsk. The partisans of the 1st and 2nd Kursk Brigades united with the units of the Red Army. How long FILIN in the partisan unit? The last record in his service list states: "11.1941 - 03.1943 commander of a platoon of the 1 Kursk Partisan Brigade". However, in the old record it is noted: "Was surrounded in the area Glukhovo in October 1941. In June 1942 rejoined by the Red Army". Maybe the city Glukhovo means town Glukhov, which is close to the Dmitrovsky district where the 1 Kursk Partisan Brigade operated. From May to July 1943, the deputy rifle company commander of 625 rifle regiment, 143 rifle division (his original division!). July-November 1943 - 27th separate officer regiment. From February 1944 until the end of the war - intelligence officer of 747 rifle regiment, 172 rifle division.
