    I would like to share these two documents (Victory medal and Prague liberation medal) for Guards Major BESKORVAINY PAVEL IVANOVICH, 1915.
    The veteran served in 108 Guards mortar battalion, 36 Guards Mortar regiment. I think from the very start, when the battalion was formed in December 1941 and was engaged at Volkhov front the same month.

    Interesting thing is that he was awarded Aleksander Nevsky order in April 1944 when he was a Captain and commanded the very same 108 Guards mortar battalion.
    "Guards mortars" are popularly better known as "Katusha" rocket launchers.

    My latest addition, a Victory over Japan document awarded to NADEGDA KRIVOSHAPKO, a female aviator in the 442nd Bomber Aviation Regiment flying with the Ilyushin Il-4 bomberplane.



    And the Ilyushin Il-4 with which the 442 Bomber Aviation Regiment flew in 1945 and 1946.

    hello, when you say "aviator", you mean a pilot or a flying personnel?
    I am not sure about it?

    Aviator in my opinion is all involved in flying missions, so both pilots as well as aircrew.
    I have to be honest and say I didn't do more research yet so I don't know her exact rank and role within the aircrew.

    I just mean she could had been a secretary in the regiment HQ.
    With the information available it is difficult to imply she she was participating in flying missions.

    My latest addition, a nice Victory over Germany document awarded to Guards Red Army soldier Ivan Dimitryevich Tatarinov. Ivan was born in Komkino in 1925. He joined the Red Army in 1943 and served at the 107 Guards Tankdestroyer Division. During the war Ivan was awarded the Medal for Bravery in april '45 and the Order of Glory 3rd class during the last days of the war plus the Order of the Great Patriotic War 2nd class in 1985. Unfortunately I am not able to read what exactly he did to get these awards.

    All in all another very nice addition to the collection.
