The Jubilee Medal "30 Years of the Soviet Army and Navy" (Russian: Юбилейная медаль «30 лет Советской Армии и Флота») was a state military commemorative medal of the Soviet Union established on February 22, 1948 by decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR[1] to denote the thirtieth anniversary of the creation of the Soviet Armed Forces. Its statute was later amended by decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR of July 18, 1980.[2]

Medal statute[edit]

The Jubilee Medal "30 Years of the Soviet Army and Navy" was awarded to all the generals, admirals, officers, warrant officers, sergeants, petty officers, soldiers and sailors, who were members of the Armed Forces of the USSR, of the troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs or of the Ministry for State Security on 23 February 1948.[1][2]

The medal was awarded on behalf of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR by commanders of military units and institutions.[1]

The Jubilee Medal "30 Years of the Soviet Army and Navy" was worn on the left side of the chest and when in the presence of other medals of the USSR, it was located immediately after the Jubilee Medal "XX Years of the Workers' and Peasants' Red Army".[1][2] If worn in the presence or Orders or medals of the Russian Federation, the latter have precedence.[3]

On the obverse, the right profile busts of Lenin and Stalin (nearer); at the bottom, the relief Roman numeral "XXX". On the reverse, the circular relief inscription along the entire medal's circumference "TO COMMEMORATE THE THIRTIETH ANNIVERSARY" (Russian: «В ОЗНАМЕНОВАНИЕ ТРИДЦАТОЙ ГОДОВЩИНЫ») separated at the very bottom by a relief five pointed star; in the center, the relief inscription in two rows "SOVIET ARMY AND NAVY" (Russian: «СОВЕТСКОЙ АРМИИ И ФЛОТА») with just below the dates "1918-1948".[1]

The Jubilee Medal "30 Years of the Soviet Army and Navy" was secured by a ring through the medal suspension loop to a standard Soviet pentagonal mount covered by a 24mm wide silk moiré grey ribbon with two 2mm red edge stripes and a central 8mm red stripe.[1]
