By October 16, 1941, in just a couple of days, there were about 10 thousand people in the 4th Moscow Division of the People’s Militia, and since it included many workers, this grouping began to be called a working one. In total, on November 15, there were about 24 thousand people in the group. During the days of greatest danger in the Moscow defence zone, fighter and communist battalions were created 4 divisions, the majority of which were party members, therefore they received the name of the Moscow Communist.

The order to form the division was given on October 28 1941, the place of its deployment was the Kuntsevo district, Kutuzovskaya Sloboda. At the Moscow defence lines, individual divisions of the division received their baptism of fire, and the soldiers showed courage and bravery in the battle with the enemy. After the defeat of the Nazi troops near Moscow, the division was sent to the North-Western Front. On the way, an order was received from the Headquarters of the Supreme High Command on February 25, 1942 to rename it the 155th Rifle Division, which then became part of the 22nd Army of the Kalinin Front. The division, its regiments and units were awarded military awards and honorary titles for their steadfastness and courage in defeating the Nazi invaders.
