Military Review

Novorossiysk search engines have opened an exhibition hall


At the corner of the intersection of the streets of the Constitution and the Novorossiysk Republic for the time being stood an inconspicuous old house. Few knew that he had several distinctive features. The first feature is that the house itself has been around for hundreds of years. The second feature is the headquarters of the Novorossiysk search center. Finally, the third - on the ground floor for a long time there was construction of an exhibition hall that could exhibit some of the most interesting finds of the search team.

As a result, the exhibition hall was opened. In addition, the walls of an inconspicuous building were decorated with unusual graffiti on a military theme. Two years of painstaking and hard work: from reconstruction of exhibits to a thorough repair of the premises. Assistance in the undertaking was provided by the Novorossiysk city administration and the Naparnik construction store. Building materials were required a lot. But the main burden of the work, naturally, fell on the search engines themselves, who, on bare enthusiasm, put into operation another object that tells of a difficult stories cities and territories.

The uniqueness of the exhibition hall is obvious. No museum will allow you to touch the exhibits yourself. They will be guarded like the apple of an eye, which, in general, is correct. But the format of the exhibition hall allows the visitor in the literal sense of the word to touch the story in a very interesting way, especially for boys. You can reload the Mosin rifle, find out how the famous German Luger P08 pistol will fall into your hand, weigh the German “mallet”, it’s the M24 grenade, etc.

Of course, except weapons, among the exhibits are many antiques of the beginning of the past, and sometimes the end of the century before last. Mechanical typewriters, coal irons, manual meat grinders, horseshoes, axes, perfume and medicine bottles, kerosene lamps, spoons, enameled mugs, etc. There are even original issues of the newspaper “Evening Moscow” for the 1943th year.

However, there is no barrel of honey without a spoonful of tar. The fact is that the Novorossiysk search center is not able to keep the doors of the exhibition hall open even five days a week. The center simply cannot afford a full-time unit in the form of the head of the exhibition hall, which, moreover, will have to combine this position with the position of a guide. At the same time, proper qualifications and at least minimal experience in search work are required, since each exhibit has its own story: from the headphones of an American Lend-Lease radio station to the edge of the Mosin rifle.

      Search engines are great fellows, caring people do a great job .. Every year, in the surrounding mountains of the hero city of Novorossiysk, search engines discover the remains of soldiers who died in the Great Patriotic War. The burial of the defenders is carried out in a mass grave in the cemetery of Kabahaha, at the sculpture of a grieving angel.
      Volunteers of the Novorossiysk Search Center recently found the remains of 12 bodies of Soviet soldiers who died in Malaya Zemlya in 1943. One of the fighters, Zakhar Okruzhko, was immediately identified by a death locket with a filled inlay. The soldier who was next to him was found the Order of the Red Star. His identity was identified by the order number.

      The sapper Nikolai Aleksandrovich Krylov turned out to be a Red Army man. On his record sheet there is an entry that his place of birth is “p. Kuzminsk Babkinsky s / s. " I have not been able to find where it is. It is only known that Nikolay Krylov was called up by the Parfenyevsky RVK, which was located in the Kostroma region.
      The exploit of the Red Army is also known, it is recorded in the award sheet:

      “Five days of fierce battles were spent by the brave sapper Krylov without leaving the battlefield, with the task of advancing 54 TBR tanks. The actions of the Red Army Krylov aroused universal admiration; they mobilized the entire Red Army mass to storm the enemy fortifications. Numerous and complex in nature were carried out by sappers of the unit of senior lieutenant Slyusarenko, and almost all of these military operations took part the Red Army soldier Krylov, taking them and playing a leading role.

      I agree, colleague. It was also struck by the talentedly executed graffiti on the building. Not the usual billiards from Pokemon and Futurama, but thematic, professional.
      It is unfortunate that it is not possible to introduce the staff unit of the caretaker of the hall, but I think that it will form over time.

    I noticed a photo from the office, where you can see the min. canteen. I have a similar flask that my grandfather found on the battlefield near Tomaszow-Lubelski in September 1939. However, this is not one of the Polish flasks - neither wz.22 nor wz.28. Russian?

      This is a flask of the Red Army of the Moscow factory of 1926 or 1931.

        Thank you.

        It is strange how the Soviet flask of those years hit the Polish soldier in 1939.
