    Brief, concrete description of his feat of arms or accomplishments

    "Serving as acting mortar battery commander, Lieutenant Dyomin showed himself a strong-willed commander during the combat operations on the Kinburn Spit. Through his personal bravery he was able to inspire the men of his battery to destroy the German-fascist invaders and expel them from our motherland.

    Comrade Dyomin managed to turn his battery’s men into a tight-knit outfit which showed excellent skill and conducted well-organized combat operations.

    Between December 20, 1943 and February 15, 1944, on Pervomaisky Island, Lieutenant Dyomin’s battery destroyed one large-caliber battery, killed up to 30 soldiers and officers, and suppressed two enemy batteries.

    During the combat operations in the Azov Sea area, Lieutenant Dyomin and two seamen captured a lifeboat at sea, took 4 soldiers and 1 corporal prisoner, and captured 5 rifles, 30 grenades, and 3000 rounds.

    For unifying his men, for his excellent combat training and efficiency, for skillfully directing his battery’s fire, and for destroying or suppressing enemy firepower on Pervomaisky Island, Lieutenant Dyomin deserves the Order of the Patriotic War, 1st Class."

    Nice badge and story too.
    I think the minor damage to the 2 o'clock ray does not detract from the award too much.
    Thanks for posting.

    Indeed, that's why I quite like worn helmets - they tell a story, that we can only guess at...

    The hammer and sickle is not gold, but steel, I think.

    The veteran served previously in the 3rd "Perekopskij" rifle regiment. It sustained severe losses during the defense of Sevastopol.
    In fact, DYOMIN was declared MIA on 03 July 1942, i.e. in connection with final fall of Sevastopol and eventual evacuation of RKKA troops.

    The hammer and sickle is a replacement yes (which happened more often).

    Very interesting facts you brought up about his missing in action. Thanks a lot for this additional information!!
