I did too, George, and thought along the lines of the name of a company, i.e. "Diamond Refrigeration."

Re: Master Sergeant Pyotr Zakharovich Gladkovsky,20th Motorized Rifle Brigade

Perhaps a refrigerator of a diamond mine?

Mines require refrigeration at great depths to keep the temperature bearable so perhaps this is the case? Is the / were there any diamond mines near where this gentleman lived?

Apparently Stakhanov, aka Kadievka aka sergo's main source of income was coal mining, though coal doesn't equal diamonds necessarily.

Curious!
