    Short description of personal combat feat or accomplishment

    During his time in the battalion since 1942 Comrade Yagontsev has proven himself a disciplined, brave warrior. He has repeatedly repaired broken lines during enemy artillery shelling.

    Comrade Yagontsev especially excelled during fighting for Shepitovka Station. On 28.1.44 while repairing broken lines of the 18th Guards Rifle Corps in the forest near the village of Rudnya, he encountered an enemy scout with a radio transmitter. Despite (?) armed resistance, Comrade Yagontsev displayed bravery by capturing the enemy scout and delivering him to the 18th Guards Rifle Corps HQ.

    Comrade Yagontsev is deserving of the Order of the Red Star.

    Signed Commander, 466th Independent Line Signals Battalion, Major (?)roz on 6th February, 1944

    Endorsed Chief of Army Communications, Colonel Nesterov on 15th February, 1944
