    Interesting, possibly awarded to someone in the 289th Guards Rifle Regiment in Nov. '43.
    'Echoes of War' has #718209 awarded to an individual in that unit.

    Here are the researched documents for this award.

    So from what I can make out…

    He was Romets, Ivan Antonovich

    Senior Lieutenant , Battery Commander of the 5th Guards Army, Parachute Division.

    Born 1922 in Ukraine

    Served in Red Army 1941 to 1947

    He was awarded the following ;

    Medal for Courage
    Order of the GPW 1st Class
    Oder of Alexander Nevsky
    Prague Campaign medal
    Victory Over Germany Medal

    His Battery stopped fire from 2 machine guns and 3 Armoured cars killing 60 German soldiers.
    On the Dniepr river they held off 6 attacks and killed 25 German soldiers

    Please correct me if I’m wrong
