This is what we find in the Russian military archives about this order:

 

"In the battles to liberate Poland, the combat medic,  private Belogortsev was extremely vigilant in performing self-defense service. February 09,1945 at the edge of the forest of the village of Alegota at 24 o’clock he noticed the enemy and raised the alarm. As a result of the German attack, comrade Belogortsev personally destroyed 4 enemy soldiers and captured 2 enemy soldiers. In addition, on January 13,1945 with the development of the offensive, the combat medic Belogortsev carried out of the battlefield and rendered first aid to 16 Red Army men. He deserves the government award of of the Order of Glory III class. Private Belogortsev was also awarded with other rewards and medals"

 

The Order of Glory was awarded to non-commissioned officers and soldiers of the armed forces, as well as junior lieutenants of the air force, for bravery in the face of the enemy. A person initially received the third degree, and would subsequently be promoted to higher degrees for further acts of bravery.

 

The medal is made of real silver (28.5g!) with red enamel works to the front center. The orange and black ribbon is mounted on a war time original metal plate with a safety pin to the reverse. Numbered to the reverse "291334" a rather low number giving this medal is a WWII issue one. The medal is in used condition.
