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

    Major Kontorshchikov has been serving as chief of Evacuation Hospital nr. 2562 since August 1941. On a daily basis he exhibits exceptional efficiency and flexibility in his duties. Through personal example and painstaking labor he continually musters his subordinates to perform a large number of medical treatments. The hospital constantly deals with a 200-250 percent overburdening, but wounded soldiers are nevertheless given expert medical assistance and excellent care in a timely manner.

    All ward nurses are trained in the methods of exercise therapy and massage; this allowed for the quality of exercise therapy to be raised to the proper level.

    Several hundred wounded soldiers experiencing ankylosis in their arm and leg joints fully regained lost function and returned to the front.

    Throughout his four years of service Major Kontorshchikov has selflessly committed all of his strength, time, and experience for the good of our motherland.

    He is dedicated to the Party and the socialist motherland.

    He deserves to be awarded the Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd Class.

    Another amazing Red Star Ade! I really must get around to purchasing one (or ten!) of these, it never fails to amaze me the amount of research that can be carried out on them. That, and they are a damned attractive award

    Thanks!

    Funny you say that, this one is my 10th!

    I only have one left now to research. I know from the serial number that it will be a 1950's era one for Long Service.

    Cheers, Ade.
