    Advanced Naval Officer Training Courses (VSOK VMF), commemorative badge, circa 1970s-80s.

    Advanced Naval Officer Training Courses (VSOK VMF), commemorative badge, circa 1970s-80s.

    Brass, enamels; 38.3 x 26.1mm. Shows Russian and Soviet naval flags, traditional anchor and chain and the inscription "ВСОК ВМФ" ("VSOK VMF"). Reverse shows raised mint logo "LMD" and is marked in raised letters: "OSN. 1827" ("founded in 1827"). Very nice quality.

    The program started in 1827 as an advanced training course for naval mine specialists in Kronshtadt, the main base of the Russian Baltic Fleet. New officer training programs were started later: for naval artillery in 1878, submarine warfare in 1906 and navigation in 1909. After the revolution, these courses were combined into a single program which still exists. The badge was probably awarded exclusively to its faculty and staff, possibly to commemorate an anniversary of the school.

    Excellent condition. Comes with original mint marked screw plate.
