Short description of personal combat feat or accomplishment
While accomplishing his combat mission to clear passages for the infantry in an enemy minefield, Sapper-Assaulter Pogosyan displayed exceptional instances of courage and fearlessness. The minefield stretched 120 meters from the lead edge of the enemy’s defense and he was subjected to shelling from all types of weapons. This brave sapper low-crawled up to the minefield, reached it, and began making passages. His heroic work lasted more than five hours. Artfully dodging the explosions and bullets, the bold assaulter casually disarmed one mine after another and called his comrades forward. For three (?) he continued his continuous and danger work and made a clearing, disarming 340 PMD-6 landmines.
He is deserving of the Order of the Red Star.
Signed Commander, 57th Independent Assault Engineer Sapper Battalion, Major Bulatov on 28th April, 1944
Endorsed Commander, 417th Rifle Division, General-Major (?) on 29.4.44
Awarded the Order of the Red Star by 417th Rifle Division Order 34/N dated 22.5.44. Signed Division Chief of Personnel Senior Lieutenant (?).

Re: Red Star,Combat Engineer,497354

Was he moving those landmines by the pallet? Demining is very much something we tend to overlook now they have been outlawed but it sounds like a long war just having to put down and dig up this chap's share!
