Badge of a Veteran of the 1941 Defense of Gangut (Hanko), #614, circa late 1960s - early 70s. The stubborn defense of this isolated Soviet naval base in Finland in the early months of the Barbarossa became legendary. Although a large part of its beleaguered garrison was successfully evacuated in the end, not many of them survived the war and even fewer lived to 1960s to receive the veteran's badge. Unlike the more common unnumbered issues, serial numbered badges were awarded exclusively to the direct participants of the battle and are quite rare.
