    An interesting, and somewhat special award.
    Just one correction on the citation translation, which is somewhat important:
    The part “in catching the stragglers and other bumping elements (or fenders)” is not correct.

    The text reads: “in catching marauders and other depredating elements”.

    Also, I am not sure SOSNIN’s position and capacity is properly conveyed in the tranlsation above.
    SOSNIN served in the 3 Guards cavalry corps.
    He was a horse-holder of the military investigator of the corps military prosecutor office.
    Hsis primary task was to care and provide for the horse (remember this was a cavalry unit) of the military investigator to whom he was attached.
    Appart from just taking care of the horse, such horse-holders often performed a role of personnal assitant and had to follow their officers in the field assisting them also in other duties.
