Short, concrete description of his combat feat or merits:

Serving as deputy battalion commander, comrade Mamoshin showed himself a bold, courageous, and decisive commander throughout the period of combat. During the fighting for the town of Bazalia on March 5, 1944 comrade Mamoshin, located with the 1st Rifle Company, led the company in an attack and was the first to rush into the town of Bazalia, killing up to a platoon of enemy soldiers in the process. Commanding a foreward detachment during the fighting for the town of Kupel on March 8, 1944, comrade Mamoshin inspired the men by personal example, and in a quick assault the foreward detachment seized the southern outskirts of the town of Kupel, killing up to 30 enemy soldiers and officers in the process and suppressing three enemy firing positions. Comrade Mamoshin deserves the Order of the Red Banner.
