Patriotic War II,0060059,Platoon Commander,1248th Rifle Regiment,376th Rifle Division

A previous researcher had not been able to find the citation for this award, but on another try it comes through! Note that the award was downgraded somewhere up the chain - everything here reads OPW I, his UK reads OPW II.

1. Last Name, name and patronymic: Lyubin Ivan Grigor’evich

2. Rank: Sergeant Major

3. Position, unit: Platoon Commander, 3rd Rifle Battalion, 1248th Rifle Regiment, 376th Rifle Division

Is Recommended for the
Governmental Award: Order of the Patriotic War 1st Class

4. Year of birth: 1920

5. Nationality: Russian

6. Party membership: Member of the VKP(b) (All-Union Communist Party (Bolsheviks))

7. Participation in the civil war and other military actions aimed at the defense of the USSR (where and when): Leningrad Front since 15.5.42

8. Wounds or contusions received during the Patriotic War: Wounded, 27.9.42, Leningrad Front.

9. In the Red Army: since 3 May 1942

10. Drafted by what district military commissariat: Kozhva District Military Commissariat, Komi Autonomous SSR

11. Previous awards: Medal “For the Defense of Leningrad”

12. Permanent home address (of the prospective awardee or his/her family): City Tbilissi, Lenin District, 2nd Mechanical Brick Factory. Mother: Bajranova Pelageya Semenovna.

I. Brief description of personal feat

Comrade Lyubin during his time in the battalion manifested himself as a courageous, resolute and firm commander, who knows his field very well. He is an expert in tactics. He has laid a good foundation for the training of his platoon. On 4.12.43 he led a capture group during a reconnaissance action and with his personal example inspired the fighters of his platoon. He was the first to stand up in the attack, and rushing into the enemy trenches he blocked the dugout and there he destroyed the Germans who were fighting back; he personally held a captive and withdrew the entire capture group without loss to the group. Under his command the capture group captured two enemy soldiers along with their documents.

Conclusion: Comrade Lyubin deserves the governmental awards: Order of “Patriotic War 1st Class”.

II. Conclusion of the Higher Command
