Kravets, Semen Vasil'evich, Driver, 944th Rifle Regiment

He received CSM in the GPW.

Rough translation:

"Awarded to driver of the Company Private Kravets, Semyon Vasilevich for showing bravery in the territory of Transylvania and Hungary, whilst under constant enemy fire and continuously providing ammunition to the subdivision.

Born in 1909, a Ukrainian non-party member.
Drafted from the Tetievsky RVC Kiev region.
Lomashny address -"

Here is his Military ID and his passport from 1979.

Re: Semen Vasilevich Kravets

The "I don't know" is an identity card for the NKPS (People's Commissariat Of The Lines Of Communications) Southern Railway but in Ukrainian. Anyone would think this person was from the UkSSR or something.....

Re: Semen Vasilevich Kravets

Excellent, thank you.

Haha, all of the evidence does seem to point in that direction.

I read somewhere in the documents that later in life he became a farrier, i think. I can't seem to see it now though.

Re: Semen Vasilevich Kravets

Out of the railway and into the fire?

I suppose the common link there is working with iron. Hand forming a horseshoe is considerably more difficult than laying a pre-formed track.

Thinking along these lines.... Were Soviet horseshoes mass produced (as is normal today) or were they bespoke, made on site? I only know one man who can make horseshoes currently and he is in his mid-80's.
