    Short, concrete description of his combat feat or merits:

    While carrying out the command’s order to capture height 1316, on which a group of Germans was dug in, totaling up to 18 soldiers with mounted and light machine guns and assault rifles, this group of Germans prevented transports with ammunition and food products to reach our units for several days.

    Sergeant Gvaramadze, who served with a reconnaissance group of his unit, was the first to break through to the height, killing an enemy machine gunner and subsequently another two soldiers.

    The group of Germans rushed about in panic and withdrew to the reverse slope of the height.

    Comrade Gvaramadze opened fire on the retreating Germans, and during the firefight he was wounded in his head.

    Comrade Gvaramadze had already been nominated for an award on the Finnish front for merit in combat and displayed heroism, but due to the fact that his staff was destroyed, the award documents were lost.

    For his self-sacrificing conduct he deserves the Medal for Combat Merit.
