Very good condition. Most of the margins are slightly irregular due to trimming. The bottom edge of both pages is very slightly crumpled. None of this affects the Admiral's signature.

Oktyabrsky commanded Black Sea Fleet in 1941-43 and in 1944- 48. He was highly credited for preparing the naval forces for the impending German attack in 1941. Later he was in charge of defense of Odessa and Sevastopol, and organized amphibious landings at Kerch and Feodosia. For his outstanding leadership he was awarded Order of Ushakov 1st cl. and Nakhimov 1st cl., as well as Order of Suvorov 2nd cl. In 1944, Oktyabrsky was promoted to full Admiral and in 1958, made Hero of the Soviet Union.
