Named Glory Iii
I just would like to share one of my special pieces. Collecting Orders of Glory for sometime now I have quite a few reserached and quite a few more not, but all good things come to those that wait...I hope
This piece was interesting because the recipient had engraved his name onto the back of the award, this in itself required the piece to be researched and the story revealed. It turned out that it was awarded to an Armenian from Georgia for actions in Lithuania.
Order Of Glory III Class # 160397
Name: Aramais Pogosyan
Military Rank: Senior Sergeant
"During the forced crossing of the Neman river, in region of Alitus city of Lithuania, from 14.07.44 to 15.07.44, comrade Pogosyan showed himself as a brave resourceful commander. He provided efficient guidance in carrying equipment – 45mm cannon and crew. During the capture of Alitus, destroyed German infantry by direct fire.
On 19.07.44 while situated in defense in the region of height 169,1 1km westward of Alitus, during the counter attack, put two German tanks out of action."
