Re: Senior Sailor Anatoly Aleksandrovich Shelepin

Other examples of the stamp really don't help.

84th Small-Caliber Antiaircraft Battalion (divizion, not divizia) I'd say.

Re: Senior Sailor Anatoly Aleksandrovich Shelepin

For Z in this case would be Zenith?

Small-Calibre Zenith Artillery Battery? (This is where "Division" means a sub-section). So the "division" of the forces at Kronstadt used for anti-aircraft defence rather than a "Division" of an Army.

Re: Senior Sailor Anatoly Aleksandrovich Shelepin

The ZA is Зенитная артиллерия, meaning antiaircraft artillery.

If I understand correctly.

Re: Senior Sailor Anatoly Aleksandrovich Shelepin

Here is an example of just what the "small" Calibre Zenith Artillery will be. This picture was taken in Kronstadt in 1941 so he may be in the photograph or have used this weapon.

I have a 37mm case from 1943 which looks to be the calibre in use here. Certainly effective at close to medium range.

Re: Senior Sailor Anatoly Aleksandrovich Shelepin

Nice picture.

Exciting that he could have fired that particular weapon. They probably had a fair few though!

I wounder what gun they captured?

Short, concrete description of his feat of arms or merits:

During the period of the Patriotic War for the Soviet motherland against fascist Germany, he participated in the battles in the northern fleet, where he was shot and wounded. In the battles he behaved bravely, decisively and heroically.

Upon arrival at the Kronstadt naval base he has proved himself a capable and able sailor. Having received captured materiel, he mastered it in a short time, which he put into service to defend the base and he assisted the other seamen in mastering the technology.
In practical shooting along the cone of dispersion, his technique worked "perfectly", where he completed the task "excellently" and "very well".

He is personally disciplined, does not have any disciplinary violations and helps his commander to strengthen military discipline. He exercises vigilance on the battery, due to them being abroad.
