"Order #0429
3rd Guards Tank Army
October 30th, 1944

RE: prohibition of hunting with automatic weapons

Individual units and formations in the army had instances where officers and enlisted men hunted game (moose, goats, rabbits) with automatic weapons, which could result in casualties among military personnel or civilians.


I order that:

Unit and formation commanders are personally responsible for ending hunts with combat weapons and punishing violators in the strictest manner.

Authorized representative of the Chief of Staff of the 3rd Guards Tank Army, Guards Major-General Lavrentyev"
