Award sheet

Last name, first name and patronymic: Gvaramadze, Georgy Sergeyevich
Military rank: Sergeant
Position and unit: Squad commander in the 1st Rifle Battalion, 810th Rifle Regiment, 394th Rifle Division
Nominated for: A state award
1. Year of birth: 1917
2. Nationality: Georgian
3. Since when in the Red Army: Since 1938
4. Party affiliation: Not a member
5. Participation in combat (where and when): Participated in the fighting with the Finns in 1940 and the fighting for the Marukha Mountain Pass on October 2nd, 1942
6. Wounds and contusions received: Wounded in the head
7. Awards received previously (for which merits): None
8. Drafted by which military commissariat: Military Commissariat of the Krasny Kolodets Raion, Georgian SSR
9. Permanent home address (of the prospective awardee or his family): 2 Bulvarnaya Street, city of Krasny Kolodets, Kakheti, Georgian SSR

Short, concrete description of his combat feat or merits:

While carrying out the command’s order to capture height 1316, on which a group of Germans was dug in, totaling up to 18 soldiers with mounted and light machine guns and assault rifles, this group of Germans prevented transports with ammunition and food products to reach our units for several days.

Sergeant Gvaramadze, who served with a reconnaissance group of his unit, was the first to break through to the height, killing an enemy machine gunner and subsequently another two soldiers.

The group of Germans rushed about in panic and withdrew to the reverse slope of the height.

Comrade Gvaramadze opened fire on the retreating Germans, and during the firefight he was wounded in his head.

Comrade Gvaramadze had already been nominated for an award on the Finnish front for merit in combat and displayed heroism, but due to the fact that his staff was destroyed, the award documents were lost.

For his self-sacrificing conduct he deserves the Medal for Combat Merit.

Here's a great divider.

This is what passes as a "food product" in the British Army. Made in New Zealand.
