While located with the attacking units he was caught under enemy mortar fire and severely wounded by mine shrapnel in his left leg. He has incurable scars and walks with a limp, and furthermore received a severe wound in his right shoulder on December 15, 1943 near Budapest (Hungary). The wound is confirmed by disease testimony nr. 1471642 of December 1, 1945. After his recovery he didn’t serve in the Soviet Army.

At the present time he works at Gruzgidroenergostroi [Georgian Hydropower Company] in the city of Kutaisi as concrete worker. At his workplace he is characterized positively.

Local party and Soviet bodies agree with the matter of his award recommendation.

Conclusion: for active participation in the Great Patriotic War and for having received two wounds he deserves to be awarded the Order of the Red Star.

I believe the town listed is not Kraków (this one is in Poland ant I doubt they would make a mistake like this), there's a settlment of Krakov in the central Czech Republic, it could be it (it does, however, make me wander why is there aletter "g" - for "gorod" before the name.

There is indeed a "Krakow/Krakov" in Czech Republic (50km West of Prague). That said, this citation is puzzling me. First, the date of the wound received in Budapest: it must be Dec. 1944 (and not 1943!). Hence, it doesn't match the "he took active part in the fighting ... to March 15, 1944". Futhermore, if the "Krakow/Krakov" is the one in Czech Republic, it must be during spring 1945. I guess that unfortunately some informations are missing to link accurately all the dots.

Re: Glory III,Deputy platoon leader/3rd Ukrainian Front/Catch-up,757389

Patrick,

:thumbsup Nice medal.

I also have a soldier book with wrong awarding dates. This happens from time to time. Writing mistakes and so on....
In my case, the award time for Glory 3rd class is given as 10/1942 in the soldier book and it was awarded in 10/1944 due to the papers from Padolsk. A writing mistake.

best regards from Cologne
Andreas

Likewise, I've seen wrong Fronts, wrong unit designations, impossible dates, etc. all caused by faulty records, memories, clerks, or a combination of the above.
