Re: Bravery Medal, Pontoneer, 31st Army, Rzhev salient (8/42),105689

Award sheet



Last name, first name and patronymic: Kovbasinsky, Pyotr Mikhailovich
Military rank: Private
Position and unit: Pontoneer in the 61st Independent Pontoon Bridge Battalion
Nominated for: Medal for Combat Merit
1. Year of birth: 1895
2. Nationality: Ukrainian
3. Since when in the Red Army: Since 1941
4. Party affiliation: Not a member
5. Participation in combat (where and when): Participated in the Imperialist War from June 1915 to February 1918 near the city of Vilnius
6. Wounds and contusions received: No
7. Which awards received previously (for which merits): None
8. Drafted by which military commissariat: Military Commissariat of the Brovary Raion, Kiev Oblast
12. Permanent home address (of the prospective awardee or his family): _______________

Short, concrete description of the personal combat feat or merits:


Despite his old age comrade P.M. Kovbasinsky served as an example during the execution of combat missions, regardless of the combat situation. He particularly distinguished himself on August 20 and 21, 1942 during the construction of a bridge to enable heavy tanks to cross the Vazuza River near the village of Grigorovo (in the vicinity of the city of Zubtsov), where he worked on finishing the tenons for the support beams of the frameworks and for the frameworks themselves.

In 10 hours instead of 16 hours 2 frameworks were completed. He chiseled the tenons for 16 support beams and finished 12 deck elements. Despite the artillery and mortar fire comrade Kovbasinsky didn’t cease his duties for a second.

Comrade Kovbasinsky is a remarkable agitator.

He deserves to be awarded the Medal for Combat Merit.

Wow,

I know that if a Mortar landed anywhere near me i would run and cry like a child!

No way would i be building a bridge in those conditions, No wonder he finished in 10 hours rather than 16 though, he needed to get out as quickly as he could! :D

Thankyou for sharing :)
