Yeisk Highest Air Force Pilots Academy (EVVAUL), veteran's badge, 1988 issue.
In brass, enamels and lacquer, 42.5 x 27.1 mm. In excellent condition and includes original mint marked screw plate (Leningrad Mint).
The badge was probably issued exclusively to the faculty and staff of this highly renowned pilots school to commemorate its 70th anniversary, and possibly to some VIP graduates invited to celebrate the occasion. The Order of Lenin at the top of the badge is the award bestowed upon the school for the contribution of its pilots during WW2.
