    Badge for Long Distance Voyage on a Surface Ship, to a participant of the Naval Exercise Okean, 1970.

    Badge for Long Distance Voyage on a Surface Ship, to a participant of the Naval Exercise Okean, 1970.

    Brass, enamels, lacquer; measures 26.4 mm in height (not including the pendant, between the bottom of the wreath and the top point of the flag); 28.9 mm in width (measured near the bottom, between the lower edge of the red plaque and the rightmost point of the wreath). Unlike the regular issue Long Distance Voyage badge for surface ship crews, this badge features a lacquered pendant with the name of the exercise Okean ("Ocean"). The reverse of the badge has raised logos of the Pobeda Factory in Moscow marked in two spots above and below the pin.

    In excellent condition. The enamel shows only a couple of tiny contact marks that are barely noticeable, completely free of the usual hairlines and chips. The lacquer on the pendant is intact. Details and fire gilt finish are beautifully preserved.

    The badge was issued to the crewmen of the surface ships and some personnel of the Soviet Land Forces who had participated in the naval exercise Okean ("Ocean"). These Warsaw Pact war games were unprecedented in their scale, numbering hundreds of warships simultaneously deployed in all four oceans.

    /"Avers 8", p. 449, fig. 2104.a; also, Borisov, "Badges of the Soviet Armed Forces", fig. 153/.
