    For Voyage to England, 1956.

    For Voyage to England, 1956. Scarce badge for participants representing the USSR in '56 naval procession at Spithead.

    Brass, enamels, excellent quality. Obverse is in excellent condition, with intact enamel and nicely preserved fire gilt to the wreath. 35mm wide. Details of the warship are beautifully sharp. On the reverse, the screw post has been replaced with a customized pin back attachment. This is a very old conversion, obviously done by the recipient himself for convenience.

    This is the more rare variation of the 1956 badge. According to Borisov, practically all of the crewmen of the cruiser Ordzhonikidze, the flagship of the 3-vessel Soviet squadron, had their badge modified to include the name of their ship. That indicates the badge presented here was awarded to a member of one of the other two, much smaller, vessels: destroyers Sovershennyi and Smotryaschii.

    /See Borisov's "Badges of the Armed Forces" fig. 147/

    Item# 12732
