History


This Order was created for naval officers. It was named after the Russian Admiral Pavel Stepanovich Nakhimov, who defended Sevastopol from 1854 to 1855.

The II Class medal was awarded to naval officers for personal leadership in the defence of coastline, communications, bases, and the accompanying destruction of enemy forces; for audacious operations conduct in mining enemy coastlines; for successfully completing a mission while demonstrating personal bravery, and also resulting in the significant destruction of enemy ships; for subordinate leadership that contributed to victory; or for support of operations that allowed for combat success.

Serial numbers range from roughly 20-300.

The obverse Russian inscription translates to: "Admiral Nakhimov."
