Card #2 from Russia

I thank postcrosser Nina from Russia for this card which shows the Russian Cruiser Aurora, currently preserved as a museum ship in St. Petersburg. She battled the Japanese Navy in the Russo-Japanese War. One of the first incidents of the Communist Revolution in Russia happened on the Aurora.

I am delighted to have this postcard of Aurora which carries significant history and played a stellar role and participated in both World Wars.

As far as I know, postage stamps to commemorate Aurora were issued by Bulgaria, Albania, Poland.

Also, there are few ship stamps of Russia on back of card, issued over various years.
