Гаситель / Gasitel

Надписи на стелле: «Слава речникам и пожарным Волжского бассейна - героям гражданской войны, защитникам Красного Царицына» «Никогда советский народ не забудет мужественных сынов Волги, прославивших себя в боях за Сталинград» Пожарный пароход «Гаситель» был построен на Сормовском судостроительном заводе в 1903 году, до 1926 года носил имя «Царев». В 1918–1919 годах «Гаситель» был непосредственным участником гражданской войны. Самый быстроходный и маневренный, он перевозил части Красной Армии, ходил в разведку, сопровождал корабли с боеприпасами. Открытая рубка была обложена тюками с хлопком, на палубе стояли пушка и пулеметы. «Гаситель» в огне войны Сталинградская эпопея для «Гасителя» началась 27 июля 1942 года, когда в районе Ерзовки враг поджег нефтекараван. Мужественная команда, рискуя жизнью, спасла караван, отвела баржи с нефтью в Шадринский затон. В разгар Сталинградской битвы «Гаситель» работал на переправах. Судно получало многочисленные пробоины, команда ремонтировала его своими силами, не заходя в затон. Постоянно приходилось откачивать воду, поступавшую в судно из пробоин... Такими были все огненные дни навигации 1942 г. За отвагу капитан парохода Петр Васильевич Воробьев был награжден орденом Красного Знамени. В середине октября изрешеченный «Гаситель» затонул. Но уже весной 1943 года судно подняли со дна и отремонтировали. После войны корабль еще более двух лет нес свою нелегкую вахту. Уже после списания и вторичного пребывания на дне реки ге­роический корабль был отреставрирован и стал памятником-музеем.
