But Zaycev mixed up the order and handed "Pergin forward" ("Pergin vperyod"). And wrong order went on, certainly partisan Pergin can not be found...

-no captured pistols or revolvers mentioned - perhaps taken as personal souvenirs (as mentioned at the original link)
LW wrote:Actually, Gusarov gives that 120 (or 119 or 124, his figure is a bit ambigous) for the number of partisans who returned in the main group. In addition 34 partisans returned before the brigade crossed Finnish lines (44 were sent back, 10 died in a Finnish ambush: this ambush is described in Gusarov's book. He got his information directly from two survivors). Gusarov mentions three other groups of partisans who returned after being separated from the brigade: Nikolajev's recon platoon (apparently 11 survivors), and "squads" led by Polevik and Sabalin. He doesn't tell how many survivors returned with those two groups. There is also the possibility that some individual partisans reached Soviet outposts and perhaps even some members from Grisukov's platoon (of the "Toivo Antikainen" detachment) that seems to have got separated from the main unit shortly before the battle on the hill 264.9. The total number of partisan survivors seems to be around 200 men. (G.N. Kuprijanov gives the figure of 288 survivors but that seems to be suspiciously high).

At 1500 Pyökki reported having cleared area between point (hill?) 195.1 - Siprajoki (Sidrajoki?). 50 ruskies were killed. Lipponen was at a time personally by Pyökki and platoon was near x=4070, y=8260. Pyökki started immediately to gain new contact with the enemy and perform the pursuit. He was not aware as to what the direction the enemy had moved (had they gone over the river or NW or W?). No radio communication contact had been achieved with Segerstråle on the whole day but according to the earlier order his task is to prevent enemy from advanding due west and force it towards the NW corner of lake Voijärvi. I would subordinate Segerstråle to Arimo if you can arrange the communications. My plan is to achieve a decision (ie. decisive victory over) of the enemy at NW end of lake Voijärvi - Tsiassalmi (Palojärvi) - Siprajoki. Pyökkimies pressures the enemy from the south, Segerstråle from the SW, Airimo will receive at the isthmus Voijärvi and Palojärvi. During the night detachment Remes and ??? will form there. I emphasize on the sharp reconnaisance so that enemy will not be able get through the picket line due north.
Currently departing boat will deliver food + fodder and 5 boxes of rifle ammunition as well as field dressing station for Putkonen. Next shipment will deliver the rest of the rations ordered.
Order for picket duty and for further action arrived at 0450 (something about connection patrol).
All security procedures mentioned in the order were performed by the late evening, in addition short range recon was set to direction 20,00. Complete darkness interrupted most activities. Connection patrol from me was sent in the morning at 0520 in the same direction at two squad strength. Remes will also sent (patrol) connection for Vepsäläinen and combat patrol for recon towards the southern edge of the western shore of lake 197.1.
Tracks on our SE direction towards every direction so it is not practical to immediately depart with the main body.
Wounded reached the main road at late evening without casualties. Own casualties therefore become (??) 2 KIA, 5 WIA.
I have rations until this this evening, i need (food for) 81 men for the following days.
Sege is the eldest, may possibly receive order to take command to clarify the chain of command.
I will relay the order i received to Remes.
Ruskie trail from south due north along the boundary between Putte (Putkonen???) and me treaded possibly already before we even arrived at dawn.
At 1500 Pyökki reported having cleared are between point (hill?) 195.1 - Siprajoki (Sidrajoki?). 50 ruskies were killed.
