24th Rifle Division (2nd forming)

24-я стрелковая дивизия - II. формирование

In December 1941, the Vologda Oblast was formed 412th Rifle Division, which, however, was already renamed 24th Rifle Division (2nd forming) on 13 January 1942. This military serial number (24th) became vacant due to the disbandment of the 24th Rifle Division (1st forming) in December 1941, which was disbanded both because of its near-total destruction in combat, but mainly because of the loss of its battle flag. Which was in the Soviet Army, as a rule, always a reason to abolish a unit, regardless of its numerical strength. Later, an investigation revealed that during the retreat from the encirclement the flag was in the possession of the division's political department instructor, senior political officer A. V. Barbashev, who was killed in action near the village of Anutino on 6 August 1941. A local resident, kolkhoznik D. N. Tyapin found the flag of the division on the dead officer's body and buried the body together with the flag in the local cemetery. After the liberation of the village of Anyutino by Soviet troops in 1943, the flag was picked up and sent for restoration. What the implications of this were for the newly formed 24th Rifle Division will be seen in the next section of this paper.

Units of the division took part in the Battle of Stalingrad, the Donbass Offensive, the liberation of left-bank Ukraine, the Zhitomir-Berdichev, Proskurov-Cherniv, Lvov-Sandomir, East Carpathian, West Carpathian, Moravian-Ostrava, and Prague Offensive operations. On 6 January 1944, the division was awarded the honorary name "Berdichevska" - in commemoration of the victory achieved and for its distinction in the fighting during the liberation of the town of Berdichev.

On 20 February 1944, the division was ceremonially presented with a restored battalion of the former 24th Rifle Division (1st forming) as well as all its decorations (two Order of the Red Banner, except for the Revolutionary Red Banner of Honour, which was no longer awarded at that time) and honorary titles (Iron, Samara, Ulyanovsk). Thus, the 24th Rifle Division (2nd f,orming) became the de facto successor of the 24th Rifle Division (1st forming), which in the case of the Red, or of the Soviet Army, a very rare case.

On 8 April 1944, the division was awarded the Suvorov Order of the Second Degree. It was awarded by decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR for the exemplary performance of the tasks of command in the fighting during the liberation of the town of Chernivtsi and for the valour and courage shown by its members in doing so. This was followed ten days later by the awarding of another high, so-called military decoration - The Bohdan Khmelnitsky Order of the Second Degree - granted by the decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR of 18.

The division ended its war pilgrimage on 9 May 1945 with the liberation of the Czech town of Letovice, 100 kilometres from Prague, by liberating the Czech town of Letovice, which was 100 kilometres from Prague, on April 9, 1944.

On 10 July 1945, the division was disbanded, but its number had already been assigned to the 294th Rifle Division, which thus became the 24th Rifle Division (3rd forming), retaining all the honorifics and decorations of its predecessor, the 24th Rifle Division (2nd forming). It's a rather messy decision on the face of it, but the Soviets were masters at it during the Cold War. The constant renaming and renumbering of combat units, the abolition of units with rich combat traditions and, over time, the assignment of their numbers, honorifics and decorations to other units, was a method inherent in the Soviet military nomenclature of the time. This was done partly because of the incompetence or ignorance of the competent and partly in the interest of confusing the potential enemy. In this case, too, apparently as a result of the euphoria of a war won and the order to gradually reduce the Soviet armed forces from wartime to peacetime status, one of the oldest rifle divisions (in terms of succession to the 24th Rifle Division of the 1st forming) and one of the few units to be decorated with three Red Banner Orders, was disbanded. When those in charge realized this, its number was promptly assigned to the existing 294th Rifle Division, with the assumption of all decorations and honorifics. The fact that the 249th Rifle Division had absolutely nothing to do with the original 24th Rifle Division played no part.

In 1957, the 24th Rifle Division was renamed the 24th Motor-Rifle Division. This time, however, it was not because of fogging, but because of an across-the-board systemic conversion of rifle units into motorized artillery units.

In the post-war period, the 24th Rifle Division (3. Formation), or later the 24th Motorized Artillery Division, was stationed in the Prykarpattia Military District (the city of Lviv). The division's headquarters and its main part were located in the town of Javoriv in the Lviv region.
