Gavrilenko, Aleksandr Andreevich, Assistant Supplier, 13th Guards Mehanised Brigade

As translated by the late Rick Lunstrom- Of note are the documented Begrade medal and two Merit Medals with SNs only 80 away from one another.



((That's his Personnel Record, next is the Awards Record Card))

1) Orders Book serial number "V 913355" ((Verified by Gerd's scan above))

Gavrilenko

2) Aleksandr Andreevich Gavrilenko

3) Captain of Administrative Branch

4) Peasant class

5) born 1908

6) in city of Leningrad

7) NOT Party member

8) middle education

9) Ukrainian "nationality"

10) served in Soviet Army November 1931 to August 1953

11) last command: 56th Army Field Base of 14th Army, DVVO ((Far Eastern Military District, indeed)) as Deputy Base Commander

12) Place of current employment and position: Deputy Director of Restaurant Number 17 ((a civilian place... what a romantic name!!! rolleyes.gif ))

13) home address Kievskaya Ulitsa 7-85, city of Riga

14) Order of the Red Banner # 408,546 in Orders Book V-91355 per decree of 3 November 1953

Order of the Red Star #2,860,236 in Orders Book V-913355 per decree of 20 June 1949

Medal for Military Merit #2,759,305 in Orders Book 913355 per 13th Guards Mechanized Brigade O-12 of 25 May 1945

Medal for Military Merit #2,759,385 in Orders Book 913355 per decree of 5 November 1946 ((( 80 numbers apart, yet 18 MONTHS difference-- one must have been delayed for some reason!!! ???))

Then Medals for Victory Over Germany, Capture of Belgrade, and 1948 Armed Forces Jubilee-- those always just cite the date they were created, not when awarded.

Stamped and attested at Moscovsky District ((which I now know was in the city of Riga)) Military Commissariat 22 May 1954

Citation for the one Military Merit Medal. The orders and remaining Military Merit Medal were all for long service.

Comrade Gavrilenko with (("boyakh"?)) for the liberation of the socialist homeland from the German aggressors, has proven himself a Red Army officer with the initiative.

In every possible endeavor to provide for the troops, he finds himself among us, timely with hot food. In times of rest such (((word is split between lines and obscured under the bound volume fold)) troops with excellent tasty food.

((Illegible)) his military merit for the homeland, Comrade Gavrilenko deserves to be awarded the Medal "for Military Merit."

Re: Gavrilenko, Aleksandr Andreevich, Supplier, 13th Guards Mehanised Brigade

Resources and translation has come a long way.

Comrade Gavrilenko in battle for the liberation of the Socialist Homeland from German Invaders showed himself to be an initiative officer of the Red Army.

In every way tried to supply the personal staff, positioned at the front line, timely hot food. During the time of rest he also provided the personal staff with great tasting food.

Considering his combat merits for the Homeland Comrade Gavrilenko is worthy of the Governmental Award Medal "For Combat Merits".

Thank you Sir- They seem to have. I just completed my MA- military history- so maybe now I can shift toward actually learning this language. Thank you for fixing my citation.

Here are some additional images. The reverses of the two medals. I love how they seem to have a sort of frosting to them. They dont seem as if they were worn too much at all.

Re: Gavrilenko, Aleksandr Andreevich, Assistant Supplier, 13th Guards Mehanised Briga

Here is an interesting document. Rick stated that it offers an explanation that he earned the Belgrade medal as an individual in the city, not a part of a military unit.

I dont understand this explanation...
