Brief, concrete description of his feat of arms or achievements:
In April 1945, captain LOZINSKY ensured and provided the reliable signalling links towards 9th and 26th flamethrower battalions and towards the machine-gun battalion of the 113th reserve regiment in the offensive operation near Bielsko-Zywiec. The reliable connections were delivered despited rapid advance of our troops and long distances to the units from the headquarters of 127 rifle crops. He personally led the construction of the wireline signalling connections. Rugged terrain complicated mobility by the troops and equipment, and scattered enemy pockets delayed the construction. But all these complications were overcome through his leadership. Just on 06 April 1945, the company constructed up to 50km wirelines. The works were often conducted in the areas ahead of our rifle scout units. Captain LOZINSKY ensured reliable signalling capability for 127 rifle corps during the course of the whole offensive operation since 10 April 1945.
Captain LOZINSKY deserves state award – order “ALEKSANDER NEVSKY”.
