And that's outcome of research on:

- Order of the Red Banner 247548 Z #497635 Decree of the Commander of Soviet Army in Far-East # 06/11 dated Aug 27, 1945

- Order of the Red Star 656998 A#467635 Decree of the Presidium of Supreme Soviet of USSR dated June 4, 1944

Not much more to be found I'm afraid. Perhaps in the future.

The scan from a Book published on the 50th anniversary of the Mongolian People's army. According to the caption of the photo, an officer on a horseback is Naum Sorkin. The caption says "Commander of the Artillery regiment N.S. Sorkin at the 'Naadam' festivity for the military personnel. 1923."

Aparantly, N.S. Sorkin was one of the founders of the Mongolian Army artillery branch.

Eagerly awaiting for a 'new' document to arrive in the mail.

 

It is a rare document... an order certificate that was in use for roughly a year and half (from early 1939 to till 1941) - a transition period certificate and hence rare and not illustrated in the well known books. This certificate was issued to all participants of the Khalkhingol war who were awarded any of the three orders for their feats. Also, the government issued this certificate to some surviving awardees of orders by 1939 and those who were awarded from early 1939 till 1941. The certificate was replaced by red hard-cover Order and Medal Booklets (known as 1940 type) and the paperback certificate was withdrawn from the awardees (as it happened with the 1926 and 1931 type ORBCV, OIV and OPS). 

 

The specimen coming my way was issued to Comrade Purevjal who was awarded the Order of Industrial Valor for his participation in the border conflict in Eastern Mongolia on March 31, 1936. The date of issue is March 14, 1939. I have already received some research information on this incident and a copy of the ukaz listing all awardees. Purevjal's name is among the awardees. 

 

For some reason, the name of order was entered incorrectly on the certificate. It shows his name and date of award correctly but the name of award is entered as "Military Valor Order" whereas it should be "Industrial Valor". The document has serial number 255 and is hand signed by Chairman of Presidium of State Small Khural Dogsom and Secretary Damdinsuren. Both of these comrades were purged. Dogsom was arrested in July 1939 and was executed by Soviet NKVD in USSR in July 1941. The hand written text reads "Purevjal is awarded for his honest service and active participation in the cause of defending the borders from the military invaders and defeating them". 

 
The incident took place at Buir Lake (Khalkhin gol area) near the border outpost on March 29 and 31, 1936. The Mongolian border guards clashed with Japanese forces on March 29 and additional Mongolian and Soviet troops were deployed to force the Japanese out of Mongolian territory. The conflict employed light tanks, armored personnel carriers, artillery, machine guns and fighter planes. Soviet and Mongolian fighter planes took part in the conflict and comrade Purevjal was one of few Mongolian technicians who served the fighter planes. And the only one awarded the order.

And here a translation of the ukaz on awarding Purevjal for his role in the border conflict in 1936. It appears that aviation and artillery played a key role in the success of the conflict. Purevjal's skills were probably very important in ensuring the smooth operation of the fighter and bomber planes that strafed and bombed the Japanese. For sure there were other technicians, including Soviet and Mongolian and also other rear supply people but only Purevjal was awarded the order. That says a lot about his efforts.

 

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

March 31, 1936

Decree #11 of the Presidium of State Small Khural

of the Mongolian People’s Republic

  1. Commander of the Mongolian Armed Forces and Minister of Military Ministry Marshal Demid reported that a group of 200 Japanese and Manju military personnel armed with heavy and light machine guns crossed the border of the Mongolian People’s Republic on 8 trucks and subsequently attacked the border guard outpost stationed at Adag Dulaan. Our brave soldiers, commanders and political commissars successfully repelled the attacks of the enemy forces and inflicted heavy casualties to their personnel and vehicles. As a result of skillful and brave actions of our soldiers, some enemy officers and their vehicles were captured and the remnants of the enemy were forced to retreat to their territory. The actions of pilot Jamba, navigator Lhamsuren, pilot Demberel, navigator Dorj, commander of the outpost Sanjaa, plane technician comrade Purevjal greatly contributed to the success of combat operation and therefore, the above brave comrades are recommended to be awarded with the Orders of the Red Banner of Military Valor and the Order of the Industrial Valor.
  1. Pilot Jamba, navigator Lhamsuren, pilot Demberel, navigator Dorj, commander of the outpost Sanjaa, plane technician comrade Purevjal and other 25 commanders and soldiers displayed bravery and heroism in the battle against the Japanese and Manju invading forces. Our brave comrades inflicted heavy losses and casualties to the enemy invaders and proved that Mongolian Revolutionary Army can defend its nation from the aggressions of foreign enemies. Having reviewed the recommendations, the Presidium of State Small Khural of the Mongolian People’s Republic decrees to award the second Orders of the Red Banner of Military Valor to pilot Jamba and pilot Demberel, the first Orders of the Red Banner of Military Valor to navigator Lhamsuren, commander of the Adag Dulaan outpost Sanjaa and navigator Dorj and the Order of Industrial Valor to plane technician Purevjal. The recommendations of other soldiers and commanders who distinguished themselves during this battle have to be received and reviewed by the Military Ministry and the ministry is authorized to bestow the awards.

Awaiting more info and will post detailed scans of the document once it arrives.

 

A bit more on Purevjal: A book on the Mongolian Airforce has his name without the first name. Apparently he was sent with a group of planes to Western Mongolia to fight the Kazakh invaders in 1935. Purevjal may have died at the end of 1939/early 1940. This is not (yet) confirmed though without reliable documents. The fact is though that his order certificate has not been replaced with later type common Order and Medal Booklet and absence of his first name supports that conclusion. But again, no documents to prove that (sofar).

Really annoying that so many old pictures have disappeared. Not just annoying for other readers but I was also kind of using GMIC as my online archive and having pics here made it easy to quickly recognize groups, documents, etc.

 

As this was such a special document I'll post it again.

When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
