He has trained three junior aviation specialists and one aviation mechanic.
For the first quarter of 1944, he fulfilled the brigade’s repair plan by 180%.
Going out to the aircraft’s accident site, he conducted only good and outstanding repairs in the established period for which he received three congratulatory certificates from the MARW leadership and rifle units, as well as a cash bonus.

Re: Red Star,Chief Aviation Technician,1120951

Medal Bar, left to right, Campaign for the Defense of Leningrad, 250th Anniversary Of Leningrad Medal, Victory over Germany, & 20th Anniversary of Victory Medal, which is mounted on the ribbon suspension for his Jubilee Medal for 30 Years of the Soviet Army and Navy. That medal, the Jubilee Medal for 40 Years of the Soviet Army and Navy, their respective documents, and the suspension for the 20th Anniversary of Victory Medal are missing from this group.

Re: Red Star,Chief Aviation Technician,1120951

Isn't "Y2" a Sturmovik?

Re: Red Star,Chief Aviation Technician,1120951

I thought the "Sturmovik" was designated IL-2, and that the aircraft mentioned in the citation is the U-2, "Kukuruzni".
