    All references to "Tirpic" in text and tags should read Tirpitz.

    "shots of the men lined up on submarine" - the sub is the K-21.

    "Vice-Admiral Golovko" is Arseniy Golovko.

    The man at 0:22 is Nikolai Lunin, commander of the K-21, (the submarine that made an attack on the Tirpitz.)

    Reducing this clip's current date range of 1940-49, this award was made in 1942.
