    Award Document for a Medal for Victory over Germany, issued on 18 August 1945 to Yekaterina Zhuravlyova.

    Award Document for a Medal for Victory over Germany, issued on 18 August 1945 to Yekaterina Zhuravlyova. Note the extremely early date of issue: this award certificate is among the first ever issued (vast majority of Victory Medal documents were issued much later, mostly in 1946-47). The document is hand-signed by Air Force Major General Belov, Commander of the 4th Special Purpose Aviation Division (ADON), Red Army Air Forces. Shows unit stamp which is only partly legible but nevertheless recognizable.

    The document is in good to very good condition. Shows moderate wear and light stains to the cover, but overall sound and free of tears, significant blotches or other serious damage. The text is fully legible.

    The 4th Special Purpose Aviation Division was created in early 1943 specifically to execute tasks of highest importance given by the Soviet High Command (Stavka.) Among its assignments were supplying partisans and saboteurs in the enemy rear. The pilots of the division also delivered urgent top secret messages to and from frontline units. They were also tasked with brining ammunition, medications and other supplies to the front line when other means were not available (like in cases when Soviet units were cut off.) It is of courser very unusual to see a document from this unit issued to a female combatant!
