The presidium of the Moscow Soviet of Workers’ and Red Army Men’s Deputies has entrusted to me, as a gift from the Moscow Soviet, ten banners of honour, to be awarded to units which have distinguished themselves at the front. I have awarded two of these banners to the officer-cadets of Siberia and Samara, who covered themselves with glory in the fighting on the Southern front. The remainder will be awarded to the mOst distinguished of the regiments. On behalf of the Red Army I express fraternal thanks to the Moscow Soviet.
