Researched Soviet Order of the Red Banner #19036


Фенин Алексей Васильевич


Awarded to Awarded to Sergeant Aleksej Vasilievich Fenin (Алексей Васильевич Фенин)


For shooting down a Me-109 in an air engagement, eliminating up to 15 German invaders, destroying 2 railway platforms and 2 enemy vehicles by his machine gun and spreading 64000 propaganda fliers deep in the enemy’s rear areas


This order is made of solid silver and enamels. Measures 39.95 mm in height, 36.11 mm in width and weighs 24.0 gram. The serial number and the mint mark Monetni Dvor are located at the 6 o’clock position of its reverse.

In excellent, well above average condition with its details crisp and light to medium overall wear. The higher laying parts such as the center wreath and the torch still show their details and the red enamel is in far better condition than most early screwback Red Banners; it only shows loss on the the center red star but is otherwise fully present. The white enamel is problem free and there have been no repairs or conversions. Its reverse shows a very attractive dark patina which matches its well fitted silver screwplate perfectly.


Brief and specific description of the personal feat or merits

He has been the Patriotic war participant since 22.06.1941 on the Western front, where he conducted 9 combat missions with the total flying time of 15 hours and 05 minutes. According to the other crews, which flew with him the same mission on 25 June 1941, comrade FENIN shot down 1 Me-109 in an air engagement near the settlement Bereza-Kartuska.

He has been fighting on the Crimean front since 19.02.1942. In this period, he made 20 combat sorties with the total flying time of 23 hours 22 minutes.

On 01.03.1942, there was a bomb strike against the enemy front line positions near the settlement Qoy-Asan. FENIN observed, that enemy infantry rushed in panic to a cover. Exploiting low flying altitude during a bomb run, FENIN opened machine-gun fire at the runners and eliminated up to 15 German invaders. On 27.02.1941 [1942 ! ], there was given an objective to deliver a bomb strike against the village Islam-Terek. During the bomb run, comrade FENIN spotted a large number of vehicles positioned on the rail platforms. He gave a long machine-gun burst at the railway train and showered it with led. Explosions occurred on 2 railway platforms, then fire raged. 2 enemy vehicles were ablaze.

Flying missions into the deep and close enemy rear areas, comrade FENIN spread around 64000 propaganda fliers.

For exhibited courage, bravery, and heroism in the struggle against the German invaders, I recommend comrade FENIN for order “RED BANNER”.
