Short description of personal combat feat or accomplishment

While organizing the battalion’s fire during the pursuit of the enemy from 21-29.01.44, Senior Lieutenant E.M. Dernovskii supported the successful flood of our infantry and occupation of 14 population centers. In fighting for the village of Varvarinskoe while supporting the 1st Rifle Battalion, 502nd Rifle Regiment, he repelled two German counterattacks trying to surround our penetrating units, at which time the artillery battalion’s fire destroyed as many as 80 enemy soldiers and officers, thus supporting our infantry’s occupation of the village of Varvarinskoe. Noticing an enemy convoy of as many as 300 men retreating from the village of Varvarinskoe in a southwest direction, he concentrated the battalion’s fire, ending the open enemy retreat and destroying as many as 50 soldiers and officers.
While occupying the city of Lyuban the battalion’s fire suppressed two enemy artillery and three mortar batteries, as well as six machinegun positions, thus supporting the success of our infantry’s occupation of the northern part of Lyuban.
For displayed courage, valor, and capable actions he is deserving of the Order of the Patriotic War II Class.
