Andreev, Vasilij Ivanovich, Lieutenant-Colonel, Railway Battalion, 8th Guards Army

About time I got around to posting this. Slightly "broken" (2nd CSM for long service).

Valour Medal 2,560,303 per 54th Army decree of 31.3.42 (from the number, this obviously did not get to him before circa May 1945)
CSM 631,698 per 14.12.43 decree of 8th Guards Army
ORS 947,838 per decree of 8th Guards Army 18.8.44

Medals for liberation of Warsaw, Capture of Berlin, Victory Over Germany
1948 Armed Forces Jubilee and 2nd CSM unnumbered 30.4.54
[also a Jubilee OPW 1]

Wife Ekaterina Aleksandrovna Andreeva [I host her group too] born 1912 and children sons: Aleksandr 1934, Vladimir 1935, Georgy 1936, and daughter Anto(nine?) 1941

Big giant white SPLOT next to stamp sized photo on extremely/excessively detailed "where and when called up" top of second side. Shall omit that entirely as all entries partially obliterated.

Re: Lieutenant Colonel Vasily Ivanovich Andreev

The key to the group, however, comes in two translated autobiographical statements.

And, for a human touch, a photo of him later in life.

Most of the documents in this full-documented group are pretty routine, so I'll spare you those. I'll add a few of the more uncommon ones.

First, his honored railroad badge and document.

And a (missing!) metro jubilee (also shown elsewhere, I think).

Re: Lieutenant Colonel Vasily Ivanovich Andreev

An earlier document, unknown (to me).
