Badge for Long Distance Voyage, to a participant of the Yug ("South") Naval Exercises, 1971.

Brass, enamels; measures 29.0 mm in width (between the lower edge of the red plaque and the leftmost point of the wreath); 26.2 mm in height (not including the pendant, between the bottom of the wreath and the top point of the flag). Unlike the regular issue Long Distance Voyage badge for surface ship crews, this badge features an enameled pendant with the name of the exercises. The reverse of the badge has raised logo of the Pobeda Factory in Moscow.

In excellent condition. The enamel shows only very light surface wear, no chips or flaking. Details and fire gilt

Brass, enamels; measures 29.0 mm in width (between the lower edge of the red plaque and the leftmost point of the wreath); 26.2 mm in height (not including the pendant, between the bottom of the wreath and the top point of the flag). Unlike the regular issue Long Distance Voyage badge for surface ship crews, this badge features an enameled pendant with the name of the exercises. The reverse of the badge has raised logo of the Pobeda Factory in Moscow.

In excellent condition. The enamel shows only very light surface wear, no chips or flaking. 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 Yug ("South") naval exercises. These war games were held on a relatively modest scale compared with the massive Okean Exercises a year earlier. Subsequently, the Yug badges are much more scarce than the awards for the former war games. Unlike the two Okean badges, there was only a single type of the Yug badge, without the differentiation between surface ships and submarines.
