Short description of personal combat feat or accomplishment

As first turret gunner firing on the cities of Fugdin and Khunkhedao his accurate firing, as well as excellent and rapid acquisition of targets, enabled the destruction of several enemy bunkers, improved defensive positions, and personnel.

Signed Commander, “Sun Yat Sen” Armored Boat, Captain 3rd Class Korner on 25th August, 1945

In fighting the enemy near Fungdin, Khunkhedao, Aotsi, and Sansin he displayed courage and steadfastness. His excellent gunning supported the intensity and accuracy of the gun turret’s fire, resulting in the destruction of an artillery battery, ten-vehicle convoy, three firing positions, as well as destruction and dispersal of as much as a company of enemy infantry.

In fighting for Aotsi while assuming the surrender of a battalion, he and two others captured 22 enemy soldiers, complete with their weapons and a heavy machinegun.

In addition to the above, Comrade I. Pilipenko captured an enemy officer.

Signed Commander, “Sun Yat Sen” Armored Boat, Captain 3rd Class Korner on 25th August, 1945

Awarded Nakhimov Medal by Amur Red Banner Flotilla, 1st Riverine Craft Brigade Commander, Captain 2nd Class Kriiv on 5th September, 1945

My thanks to desantnik & Auke for their invaluable assistance.

Re: Nakhimov,0010475,Turret Commander

Apart from the fact that it is a very interesting citation, it's probably the first river flotilla award I have ever heard of.
