The Explorers' Club, № DCCIV

Operation AXIOM: After the World War—The Russian Civil War, Part VI
18 August 1919: British Royal Navy Coastal Motor Boats based in the Björkö Islands in the Gulf of Finland & aeroplanes from the aircraft carrier H.M.S. Vindictive—part of the halfhearted Entente intervention against the Reds—raided the Soviet naval base at Kronstadt, which guarded the approach to Petrograd; the Soviet battleships Petropavlovsk & Andrei Pervozvanny were damaged.

Lest we forget.
