Short, concrete description of his combat feat or merits:

During his time serving in the Navy, starting in 1941, Midshipman Grigory Klimentyevich Slipchenko has proven himself to be disciplined and dutiful. He has mastered his specialty of diving excellently and possesses a lot of experience in raising ships and underwater engineering work, which he accumulated during the Patriotic War and during the years after the war. He took part in the operations to raise the gunboats Krasnoye znamya and Pioner. For carrying out his tasks in an excellent manner he has been awarded the Medal of Ushakov and the Medal for Combat Merit and has received 47 commendations.

From 1950 up to the present time, Midshipman Slipchenko has been continuously leading the search for and the recovery of mines in the harbors of the Riga Naval Base and the nearby rivers. For five years searching for mines, Midshipman Slipchenko disregarded the danger and personally inspected the mines that were discovered in the water and led their recovery and disarmament. With his direct assistance over 30 mines were raised, including more than 20 RMH mines. In 1954 Midshipman Slipchenko under water inspected 3 RMH mines with non-contact fuses, which had been found near harbor entrance breakwaters in the mouth of the Western Dvina River and in the immediate proximity of Riga Trade Port, and led the disarmament and recovery of these mines.

He is modest, dutiful and persistent in carrying out his duties. Midshipman Slipchenko always serves as an example of selfless service to the motherland.

For carrying out his tasks in the search for German mines and clearing the waters of Riga Naval Base in an excellent manner, G.K. Slipchenko deserves to be awarded the Order of the Red Star.

Commander of the 406th Independent Salvage Squadron, Riga Naval Base, 8th Fleet
Captain 2nd Grade [signed] /Viktor Mikhailovich Sevastyanov/
April 27, 1955

By Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR of September 20, 1955 awarded the Order of the Red Star.
The other Red Star and CSM are long service awards.

Re: Midshipman Grigorij Klement'evich Slipchenko,Diver,Red Banner Baltic Fleet.

Is it a knock down or a push up from Nakhimov Meal to CSM?

There were far less Nakhimov medals awarded weren't there? But it was worn AFTER the CSM in the order of precedence wasn't it?

This may not have anything to do with anything, but i'm curious.

Neither a knock down, nor a push up; the Nakhimov Medal was the Navy equivalent of the MCM, but as you say it was worn immediately after the MCM in the order of precedence.

There seems to have been a good bit of confusion in his case between properly "naval" awards and the parallel "army (and air force)" awards. His Ushakov was originally recommended as a Medal of Bravery, while the Nakhimov (which would have made for an even more delightful group!) got morphed into it's army "brother", the CSM. There seems to have been a good bit of confusion and sloppiness between the navy/army awards, between the Ushakov/Gallantry and Nakimov/Combat Service medals.

I'd like to hear the thoughts of others on this issue. Maybe I just want to see more system and more rationality than has ever existed in any nation's "system" of honors.
