The author of these lines was lucky to meet an amazing man, Captain 1st Rank Engel Petrovich Karpeev. He was 91 years old. Engel Petrovich has a great memory, and he still works at the Institute of the History of Natural Science and Technology named after S.I. Vavilova RAN. Karpeev was a participant in two parades of 1945 on Red Square in Moscow.
In anticipation of the triumph
Everyone knows the Victory Parade on June 24, 1945. But almost two months earlier, on May 1, 1945, there was another parade, which was conceived as victorious. On the eve of May Day it was assumed that Berlin would be taken on that day. In fact, the resistance of the Germans in Berlin ceased early in the morning of May 2.
Cadet Engel Karpeev studied at this time in Leningrad in the third year of the Higher Naval Engineering School of. F.E. Dzerzhinsky. In mid-April 1945, the cadets were announced that they were sending a company to the May Day parade from the school.Karpeev achieved that he was included in this company. There were cadets of the Higher Naval School named. Mv Frunze.
In Moscow, Bolotnaya Square immediately began daily drill sessions, passing a row, etc. Everyone felt that fascist Germany was about to be crushed. It was a matter of several weeks, and then of days.
The cadets were placed in the barracks at the Sokol metro station. They gave them 20 American Studebaker cargo trucks of white and blue color. On the front car hoisted the naval flag. When the column moved in Moscow, it made an unforgettable impression.
There were 20 people in the line, and there were ten such lines. It looked like the front "box". They were two such naval. A rifle hung on the shoulder of each cadet. Such zeal in drill classes was hardly ever felt. We already knew that the parade would be in honor of the capture of our troops by Berlin.
Fullness of happiness
The day of May 1 was amazing, sunny, warm. Passing by the Mausoleum, everyone, of course, looked at Stalin. He was in marshal's uniform, without an overcoat. It was, in fact, a parade of the Moscow garrison, metropolitan schools and without the participation of military equipment. He passed pretty quickly.Naval cadets stopped at Nogin Square. Then they were told that they would go along Gorky Street to Pushkin Square, where there would be a small halt, and then they would go to Belorussky Station.
“The mood was extraordinary,” says Engel Petrovich. - It seemed that after Victory, life would be completely different, everything would be achievable. Everywhere thundered "March of Enthusiasts." He and we, and thousands of Muscovites who filled the Gorky street, sang him. I have never before, nor after, experienced such full happiness as it was then. We all waited for this day - and he came ...
The column of cadets was difficult to move among thousands of people. We moved our line forward and built a wedge so that we could move forward. Muscovites gave us a huge amount of flowers. And we gave them to girls on the streets. We finally got to Belorussky railway station. Our studebakers were waiting for us there, and we drove to our barracks at Falcon. And in the evening we were released on leave. I sought out my mother and younger brother, who had already returned from evacuation. My father fought at the front.
Will remember
The next morning, on the radio, they reported that Berlin had capitulated. Until May 9, there was still a whole week. But all of Moscow was already jubilant.In the evening, festive searchlights came through the sky. Flags and banners were highlighted. There was a real walk on Red Square.
... In June 1945, all those cadets who were at the parade on May 1 were sent to Moscow again. Again drill, even at night. And then the Victory Parade on June 24th. He was already big, with the participation of technology. Engel Petrovich Karpeev recalls:
- I will never forget how Marshal Zhukov left the Spasskaya Tower, and Marshal Rokossovsky rode on handsome horses to meet him. Our battalion passed last, after the ceremonial calculations of all fronts and all fleets. And behind us was a special banner company, whose soldiers threw fascist banners on a wooden platform near the Mausoleum. These motion pictures are often shown on television. And in the last line of sea cadets I find my back, fifth from the left. I was then 20 years old ...
More than 70 years have passed since the Victory Day. Few left those who were adults then. The time is inexorable. At present, it is difficult for us today to grasp the greatness of the feat of the people and their army, which in the first half of the 1940s saved our Fatherland, our future and ourselves. Let us remember what price this Great Victory went to us.
