Short description of personal combat feat or accomplishment

Comrade Sadavaev whilst working on the construction of the first line of defense in the area of Kladoff-Kenigsberg, demonstrated record levels in work whilst digging trenches, working with his “face mining” method ", he covered thirty to thirty five meters a shift, the normal rate being ten meters.

Comrade Sadavaev selflessly exceeds his allocation in the digging of hiding places for tanks despite the difficult circumstances. Taking a proactive approach in the method of land development, Comrade Sadabaev operates with multiple shovels, depending on ground conditions.

For taking the initiative and in regards to the extremely high performance of his tasks, he is worthy of the government award the “Order of the Red Star".

Re: For Combat Merits,0494382,Digger,227th Field Military Construction Works,Steppe F

Nice to see a "digger" get an award (although not the usual type of digger we think of in the Commonwealth).

I knew a chap like this once. In the morning someone would point at a spot and tell him "dig that way" and then at the end of the day someone would have to go and tell him to stop digging.

Hopefully the ground was nice and soft alluvial soil and not shale. Digging a hole of 30 cubic metres of shale every day would certainly deserve a higher award.

He must have had arms like tree trunks.

I'm pleased with the research, something quite unusual.

The Stakhanovite reference is cool too.

I'll post pictures when I can find the energy to get out of my chair!
