Bravery medal 2286285 - marine


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just wanted to share few medals that I recently picked up during my holidays in Estonia. I also got the owners files via research services that one of our fellow forum member is organising.

Now, I was hoping that at least one of the medal' s owner is Estonian but unfortunately not. Therefore I will move them on probably soon enough but still, the excitement of the research is great and therefore I would like to share results.

First I got a nice bravery medal numbered 2286285.

Viktor Kuzmin, marine. He fought at the most northern peak of the front - Musta-Tunturi, Kola peninsula in Artic Russia, where he fixed cutted telephone line under heavy enemy fire, also he was in the combat where he killed at least 3 germans and saved injured comrades.

Staršina (NCO) Mikhail Klyuchnikov, Navy AA artillery. Served in very rare lake Ladoga flotilla! His unit shot down 5 enemy planes during the action, where he participated as well.

Medal is with the scare small original ribbon plate. Unfortunately disk is missing but I reckon I still did well.

Great! Nice citation. Here is the map of KLYUCHNIKOV's separate AA artillery squadron in 1943 about the time mentioned in the citation.
