Short description of personal combat feat or accomplishment

Comrade Losev has repeatedly entered into battle and in doing so has always supported the success of the fight. While in a TPZ [trans: unknown abbreviation, but some kind of factory] near the village of Prensdorf* he met a large enemy column, scattered it, and destroyed as many as 63 vehicles, two armored personnel carriers, a 202mm self-propelled gun, and 70 German soldiers and officers.

On another occasion while conducting a reconnaissance along the an approach to the village of Jamo*, a group of Germans were trying to surround and destroy Losev’s battery, but in turn was scattered and left as many as 25 Hitlerites on the battlefield. The operation to capture the village of Kropstedt* was conducted successfully and while repelling an enemy counterattack on the village of Ferkh* [trans: this sentence is a fragment as written] In this engagement as many as 45 German were destroyed and 15 captured.

Comrade Losev is deserving of the Order of the Red Banner.

Signed Commander, 3 Self-Propelled Artillery Battalion, Guards Captain Panchenko on 5 May 1945

Endorsed Commander, 22 Nevelskaya Red Banner Order of Suvorov Self-Propelled Artillery Brigade, Guards Lieutenant Colonel Kornoshkin on 10 May 1945

Congratulations Tom! :thumbsup
Nice combat ORB and nice citation!
As Bill suggested, since he was officer, you might be able to get his personal file and learn a lot more about Losev.

Thanks Paul!

I couldn't find the write up for the Nevsky on Podvig unfortunately. Perhaps that's just me being useless!

Re: Red Banner,0265096,SU57 Battery Commander

I think you're looking at Kropstädt in Wittenberg, Saxony. Finding that on the map and then looking around you could find all the other places named (or not).
