An interesting item for anyone with a collecting interest in Military and naval Postcards.
The postcard shows the Russian Soviet Cruiser Aurora.
The cruiser, built in St. Petersburg between 1897 and 1900, took an active part in the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-05 and participated in the Tsusima battle, in which most of Russia's Pacific fleet was destroyed. After the war the ship was used for personnel training and during the October revolution of 1917 gave the signal, by firing a blank shot, to storm of the Winter Palace, which was being used as a residence by the democratic, but largely ineffective Provisional Government.
During World War II and the 900-day Siege of Leningrad the guns of the ship were taken down and used on the front line of the city's defenses. After the war the ship was carefully restored and used as a free museum and training ship for cadets from the nearby Nakhimov Navy School.
Postcard printed in 1963 is not in Good Condition, but shows a preprinted 3 Kopiyok Stamps and two Soviet Postal Cancellations from 1966.
