The chest pin badge (insignia) of the servicemen of the 3rd Separate Special Purpose Brigade of Belorussian Interior Troops.
The symbol of the Brigade is the lynx – a Belorussian forester. It is a slick, fast, accurate and at the same time cunning and clever beast. Obviously, Belarusian commandos and consider themselves the owners of the same qualities.
The chest pin badge (decoration of skill) is meant for officers and warrant officers of the Soviet Navy who have successfully finished special diving training. The prototype of the pin badge is the diver’s badge of the Russian Imperial Fleet, designed in 1897.
The oxidized pin badge represents a roundish crown in the shape of an anchor chain with the image of a Hall anchor and a big divinghelmet of the “three bolt equipment” inside.
