This unique document - the autograph of Nikolai Nikolaevich Ogloblinsky was sent to me by Andrey Vladimirovich Khvalsky. He sought him out in the archive of his uncle, Mikhail Stepanovich Baadzhi, a naval sailor who served in the Pacific Fleet as navigator of a ship connection, a specialist in deviation, during the war. After the war, he graduated from the Academy of the General Staff. The last years of his life spent in Pushkin, worked in a military research institute.
