    • On April 22, 1945, near Bigen, the enemy began a counterattack and threatened the right flank of the division. Having received information about the enemy, comrade Filyachenko turned a battery around and moved it to the front line. Despite the front line being under heavy artillery and more fire, comrade Filyachenko managed to discharge a salvo at the counterattacking enemy. The counterattack was thwarted; up to a platoon of Nazis was killed, and six vehicles were destroyed.
    • On April 30, 1945, near Berlin, comrade Filyachenko was at an outlook near the front line and noticed that the infantry’s advance was impeded by mortar fire. Comrade Filyachenko left the outlook and joined the infantry, where he discovered the position of the enemy mortar battery. Firing a salvo based on these data, the Soviets were able to destroy the battery.

    Hi,
    I hope I have understood your question and I do not understand why the set is on a navy uniform.
    The holder of orders and medals served in the artillery ....
    The set would be better on a kittel, or Mundir.
    Regards.

    Captain 2nd rank without gold leaves on visor
    This is a parade mundir for Naval Land Forces - Rank of Lieutenant-Colonel. The rank terms "Captain - First, Second, and Third Rank" were reserved for sea-going senior commanders.

    Also, there are three bars on the cuffs, and I believe that they should correspond to the number of stars on the shoulder-boards - but I am not 100% certain.

    I also believe the cap dates from the (late) 1950s from it's construction & it's "crab" cockarde. It would need the leaves on the visor for such a rank.

    In any case, "• April 1944 - OPA (separate seaside (maritime) army), 4th Ukrainian Front" - perhaps that means something. I would think that Naval Land Forces had additional types of artillery units other than Coastal Artillery and that many displaced Fleet personnel participated (including Odessa and Sevastopol veterans) in the land battles until the end - including the capture of Berlin...

    Keep in mind that this type of parade uniform was deregulated during the latter part of 1951. Do not discount anything, as this could be a legitimate award/uniform grouping...

    BTW, please show close-up images of the OBVERSE of all ODMs without removing them. I'm curious...

    Thank you RichieC!

    Here the pictures you requested. Interesting info you give here! Never knew that naval personel were fighting on the ground as well. Btw, am I correct that you think the uniform is older than the visor?

    Tnx again!

    Yes.

    I requested the images of the ODMs to see what our resident ODM guys think. Most likely, they will ask for more qualitative images.

    I myself would like to see better images of the Guards badge...

    Yes, I will post better pictures tomorrow. I'm 100% sure the Orders of the Patriotic War are real but I always have a problem with autenticating the defense/capture medals.

    The Order of the Red star is a early 50's edition. Probably for long service.
