Tashov Jani

Jani Tashov was born in the village of Marina, Voden region in 1919. He took part in the national liberation struggle against the German occupiers and because of that was followed by the reactionary forces. Jani was forced along with other national fighters who were being followed to escape to the mountains. When DAG was formed he joined its ranks and served in a range of areas - Vermion, Kajmachkalan, Vich and others. He took part in many battles and in the fire of battle he rose to the rank of leading commissar. So that he could add to his military knowledge he was sent to officer school at the Headquarters of DAG.

Jani fell on Vich at the locality "Glavata" on 17 October 1948. At the suggestion of the 103 brigade where he served, he was promoted to lieutenant, posthumous hero.
