For his good organizational efforts he was granted with money awards several times. For his great results in the overfulfilment of the financial plan and his achievements in the depository plan he was granted with wrist watches. During the period of battles in January 1944 assault operations and battles on Karelian peninsula comrade XXX carefully monitored the human losses of the regimental personnel and did all paperwork about this issue on time.
