    Tikhanovsky and date were made with one kind of tool and construction with a star and inscription „Sevastopol” were made with different tool over name „Tikhonov”. I guess this was made by other soldier probably when he took mess tin from dead Tikhanovsky.

    I see. different tooling. OK.
    I found settlement NABIL'. But I am not sure it gives us any clarity. It is thousands kilometres away on the Eastern coast of Sakhalin island.

    I doní Think thatís it It would be hard to travel all that way from Sakhalin to western Poland and pass basic training within 2 months.
    Another thing is Nabilí was a settlement and in KIA report thereís Gorodsky voenkomat mentioned.
    One more Iíd that all who were drafted in USSR had RVK and oblastí geaven- here is only GVK and a city.
    Another thing- there are two more man who had similar names of draft place geaven-Nakilí and Naklya
    Maybe thatís misspelled name Nakel or maybe someone made up their draft place name from familiar city name to avoid gaps in report due to lack of their known actual draft place?

    Right. I agree.
    There are only two men, which Voenkomat resembles NABIL’.
    The one is on Sakhalin, the other one in Tatar ASSR.
    And TIKHANOVSKY is the third. That is it. This means that you explanation is valid. Otherwise I would expect more people be drafted from the same settlement.
