The K-141 "Kursk" - 13th Anniversary

Recommended Posts

Monday, August 12th, will mark the loss of the Russian submarine K-141 - the "Kursk" - with all hands. This would be one of the worst submarine disasters in history. In memory of the loss of the Kursk, I thought I would post some pictures I have of commemorative badges and awards relating to the Kursk, and the recovery efforts. Please feel free to post any mementos, pictures, awards, etc. you may have relating to this proud submarine.

To start off, here is a picture of a small grouping of awards and badges I have.

I am told this medal was awarded to those who participated in the search and recovery efforts.

Thank you, Nick! I wasn't 100% positive about which medal was for what. Thanks for clearing that up for me :)
