Honored Allies Wednesday: Abdullin M. Idiyatovich (Soviet Union)

 

"Born in 1919 and was drafted into the Soviet Army in 1938 by the Leninsky district military commissariat of the Fergana region.  Guards sergeant, gun commander of the 6th battery of the 167th Guards Artillery Regiment.  Commanding his gun, Senior Sergeant Abdullin did not allow the Red Army to break through the defenses, and knocked out 8 enemy tanks.  The title of Hero of the Soviet Union was awarded to Mansur Idiyatovich Abdullin a month later - in August 1943."

Another honored ally,
