Condition: Good very fine
Mikhail Nikolayevich Zavadsky was born in the city of Voronezh in 1921 and served in the Red Army from August 1941 onwards as a submachine gunner in the 151stRifle Regiment.
This Order of the Patriotic War 2ndClass awarded to him by the Supreme Soviet on 6thNovember 1945 without a citation is almost certainly for wounds received in the war. This is backed up by the fact that after the war he is listed as temporarily unemployed. He was living at 83 Proletarskaya Street within the city of Voronezh.
