Short description of personal combat feat or accomplishment


During his service in the battalion from the moment of its establishment in June 1941, Private A.G. Vorochenko has mastered the equipment of the line signal service with enthusiasm and passed on his knowledge to his comrades. He has earned repeated commendations from the Army signals detachment and battalion for his exemplary mission accomplishment in servicing the lines during the 31 Army’s fighting.

During our forces’ recent offensive operations near Medvedevo, Comrade Vorochenko acted exceptionally boldly and masterfully, for example on 7.8.43 he was responsible for quality repairing of Army signal lines damaged by enemy artillery and mortar fire while under continuous enemy fire.

While working to string cable lines across a minefield while under enemy artillery and mortar fire on 11.8.43, Comrade Vorochenko’s actions motivated his comrades as he systematically repaired broken lines in the established time period and provided continuous communications.

Private Vorochenko is deserving of the Order of the Red Star for personal bravery and quality work as a signalman/line runner.

Signed Commander, 653 Independent Signals Battalion, Major Pivovarov on 8 September 1943

Endorsed Chief of Signals, 31 Army, (?) Belshev on 10 September 1943

Re: Red Star,0346822,Signalman

I wonder if his Medal "For Combat Merits" survived a little better?

Re: Red Star,0346822,Signalman

It would be interesting to know!

I wonder this gentleman himself survived the war?

Google maps indicates Medvedevo is near Moscow, looking at where the 31st army fought, would it suggest that the soldier took part in its defense? And would he have been eligible for its campaign medal?

Thanks,

Tom

Re: Red Star,0346822,Signalman

The cheapest way is use ОБД Мемориал and "the site". If he died he'll be on the "memorial" if he survived and was awarded more it may mention his campaign Medals on the citation.

Thanks! I didn't know about the memorial site, I'll have to remember that one.
I've searched on there and Podvig but seemingly no hits.

Ah well

Make sure you're using the correct Cyrillic as transliterating this "translation" back from Latin will be very problematic.

Re: Red Star,0346822,Signalman

There are other "Вороченко"s on Memorial and other "Андрей Воронченко"s but not this chap. "The site" database is currently down so is giving all inquiries a negative result.
