Order of the Day, addressed to Col.-Gen. Maslennikov, announces that troops of the Third Baltic Front, as a result of a skilful out-flanking manoeuvre combined with a frontal attack on July 21, captured by storm the town of 0strov - large communications centre and powerful strongpoint of the German defences covering the roads to the central districts of the Baltic area.

The Order mentions 30 commanders of troops, artillerymen, tankmen, airmen, sappers and signallers whose units and formations have distinguished themselves.

A salute of 12 salvoes was fired from 124 Moscow guns.
