Short description of personal combat feat or accomplishment

Prior to his induction into the Red Army Comrade Tsurkan lived on territory temporarily occupied by the Germans. After training in a reserve regiment as a machinegunner he was assigned to the 162 Rifle Regiment, 133 Division, 5 Army, where he was wounded in an offensive for the city of Instenburg on 7 February 1945.

Upon returning from the hospital he participated in the liquidation of the Gdynsk enemy pocket as a member of the 297 Rifle Regiment, 184 Rifle Division as a machinegunner and on 18 March 1945 he was wounded by shrapnel from an enemy shell.

A week later Comrade Tsurkan was assigned to the 1229 Rifle Regiment as a company commander’s messenger. While fighting for Koenigsberg and accomplishing a combat mission delivering a message, he was wounded 7 April 1945 for a third time.

He has served in the 31 Motorized Red Banner Topographical Detachment since 6 July 1945.
For his participation in fighting for the Soviet motherland, for displaying bravery and valor, and for spilling his blood three times, I am recommending Comrade Tsurkan for the Order of Glory III Class.



Signed Commander, Lieutenant Colonel Makarovskii on 9 July 1945
Endorsed Chief of Topographical Services, 3 Belorussian Front, Colonel Vasilev on 12 July 1945

Re: GloryIII,hard months in East Prussia,435096

Based upon the earilier citations I have seen on the OGIII, it seems as if the criteria for the award became looser toward the end of the war.

Still, a really nice researched Order. Congratuations!
