Re: Davtjan, Mamikon Vartanovich, Flight Commander, 184th Separate Aviation Regiment

This August 1944 awarded Order Of The Patriotic War 2nd Class #206640 was his first award - it will have been on his chest when he was downed by enemy fire. This gives it a rather nice twist even if research is currently unavailable for it.

It doesn't look anything like all those smashed awards that are so often labelled as "combat worn". I'm sure his aeroplane had a few scratches and holes when he was finished with it though.

Re: Davtjan, Mamikon Vartanovich, Flight Commander, 184th Separate Aviation Regiment

Red Banner #190506. Awarded 1st March 1945.

It looks as though Davtjan has put some sort of screw or fastener on the back of the Red Banner at some point - most probably to stop it waving around whilst flying and possibly during the war. It seems that he also removed whatever was there later on (probably after he stopped flying).

10. Which Regional Military Commissariat called. Leninikan Regional Military Commissariat.
11. Has received awards (for which distinction). Orders "Red Banner" "Patriotic War 2nd Class".

Senior Lieutenant Davtjan at the front of the Patriotic War participating from June 1941 to April 1943 and again from May 1944 to May 1945. In the staff of the regiment participating from May 1944.

For this period Comrade Davtjan made 363 combat flights for communications for units of the 2nd Belorussian Front having the most flights of all in the regiment. After his last award Comrade Davtjan has made 68 combat flights for communications, completing all tasks with distinction.
Senior Lieutenant Davtjan being the flight commander managed by his personal example to inspire the staff of the flight to excellent work and as a result there was not a single accident or damage to a plane throughout all the period of work with the regiment. His organisational skills managed to ensure the combat work of the flight so, that his flight in the regiment flew more than all the other planes and with the greatest flight hours.
Personally Comrade Davtjan while performing combat tasks showed exceptional bravery and endurance. In the period of the decisive offensive of the units of the 2nd Belorussian Front and especially at the crossing of the River Oder and mastering of Stettin Comrade Davtjan by day produced around 4 or 5 combat flights.

30th April 1945 while delivering important combat documents to the 3rd Cavalry Corps in heavy rain with a storm wind Comrade Davtjan not bothered, continued to perform combat tasks knowing the importance of delivering the documents. On this day despite the weather Comrade Senior Lieutenant Davtjan delivered four important packets to advancing units, showing exceptional perseverance.

Conclusion: Worthy of the Governmental award Order "Red Star".

Commander 184th Separate Aviation Lomzhinsk Red Banner Regiment Of Communications Lieutenant-Colonel Eliseev
