Knight’s Cross: “At 02:10 on the 01.07.1944 the reinforced I./Panzergrenadier-Regiment 25 under its distinguished commander, Hauptmann Blancbois, set out for a relief attack through Pogoreloye in the direction of Svisloch. The objective was to create a corridor for the German soldiers escaping from Bobruisk. The Bataillon became pinned down by overwhelming Soviet forces on three sides just before the village of Svisloch, and it was thrown back a few kilometres. However during this combat a total of at least 15000 men were able to get behind the Bataillon and retreat over the Svisloch river towards Marina Gorka. By this action Hauptmann Blancbois had a decisive share in the rescue of Bobruisk’s former garrison.”
