Petruhina (Laptevaja), Antonina Petrovna, Military Tribunal/SMERSH/OO MGB-MVD

This is a first part of a group to a married couple who were at some point officers of the SMERSH and later Special Dettachments (Osobye Otdely) MGB/MVD/KGB.

First - a 1943 document confirming that she was promoted to the rank of Senior lieutenant of Justice Service:
"Order
To the troops of the 6th Army.
7 April 1943 Nr.0156 Active army

In accordance with "Service of commanding and Leading personnel of the Red Army Act", confirmed by the decision of CIK and SNK SSSR of 22 September 1935 and the act of the Praesidium of the Supreme Council of the SSSR of 18 August 1941, promote the Juridicary personnel of the Army units to the ranks:

"Senior Lieutenant of Justice"
8.To the secretary of the Military Tribunal of the 152 Rifle Division - junior voenyurist Laptevaya Antonina Petrovna.

Commander of the 6th Army
Lt-gen. F. Kharitonov

Member of the Military council
maj.-gen of Air Force
V. Klokov

Chief of Staff
colonel
Kulishov

I confirm that this document contains the information from the order[not sure how to put it sorter in English]: sr. secretary of the Military Tribunal of the 6th Army
Justice Captain /-/ /Kon'kov/"

Another document is 1949 document issued by the directorate of counterintelligence of the OdVO to be registered at militia station, stating that she works for the directorate and lives at Engels Street 36, flat 2.

The document was written on the back of an old map

Re: Petrukhina (Laptevaya) Antonina Petrovna, military tribunal/SMERSH/MGB-MVD OO

1949 medal booklet listing her awards: a 1943 CSM and a later BM. So far, not available on pn, I will try to research them one day, but I don't count on that too much.


Another document issued by the directorate of counterintelligence of the MGB of the OdVO on 18th MArch 1953 to be given to the militia in order to be issued a new passport.
Appart from the earlier information, it states that with her live:
her mother Tatyana Yakovlevna Laptevaya, born in 1897
Her son Vyacheslav, born in 1947
Her brother Vladimir, born in1937

Her 1953 Reserve officer booklet. Armed Forces, not MVD/KGB version.

Aparently she retired with the rank she had held for 10 years - sr. lt. of justice service.

Re: Petrukhina (Laptevaya) Antonina Petrovna, military tribunal/SMERSH/MGB-MVD OO

She finished 10 classes of secondary scool in 1941 and 1 year ofArkhangelsk Law Schoo in 1942. She also graduated from VUML in 1951.
Her famili consisted of her husband Aleksandr Efremovich Petrukhin, son Vyacheslav (1947) and daughter Tatyana (1953)

The booklet is also not very informative about her service:
06.1942-05.1944 - Secretary of the Military tribunal of the 152 rifle division, Karelian Front
05.1944-06.1953 - Worker of the organs of the MVD USSR.

A bit more info can be found in the part about her participation in the GPW:
07.1942-05.1944 Secretary of the Military tribunal of the 152 rifle division, Karelian Front
05.1944-05.1945 Employee of the organs of the MVD SSSR at 3rd Ukrainian Front OO (Special detachment) of the 34 rifle corps and 10 guards rifle corps.

Re: Petruhina (Laptevaja), Antonina Petrovna, Military Tribunal/SMERSH/OO MGB-MVD

So far, not much on her service was available, but luckily, she was a member of the Party, so she had her full work record detailed in her Record Booklet. Even more fortunately, I do have it.

So:
She was a party candidate from 1938 to 1942 and became a full member in june 1944, accepted by the party comission of the 34 Rifle Corps.

She had a model 1954 party booklet nr 0315581

The booklet was filled in by the Soviet Regional kommissar of the Communist PArty of Ukraine of the city of Lvov in 1974.

Her father was an engineer, her mother was a nurse.

She had secondary education, finishing a secondary school in Arkhangelsk in 1941, apparently they didn't count her incompleate higher education.

Re: Petruhina (Laptevaja), Antonina Petrovna, Military Tribunal/SMERSH/OO MGB-MVD

She had no speciality coming from the education and had no academic title.

She was awarded:
BM
CSM
"For Defense of Soviet Arctic"
VoG
"30 Years of the Soviet Army and Fleet"
"20 Years of victory in the GPW"
"30 years of victory in the GPW"
"60 years of the Soviet Armed Forces"
"Veteran of Labor" (in 1979 - interestingly, she has not worked at all after she was de-mobilised).
"40 years of victory in the GPW"


She knew no foreign languages, was removed from military registry, wasn't a member of any "brother" communist parties, wasn't a member of the KPSS before.

In 1980, she was issued a veteran ID

And it states that she was re-registered in 1987.
