Marina Raskova stamp from Russia
The Russian Post has issued a stamp commemorating the centennial of birth of Marina Raskova.
Marina Raskova (March 28, 1912 – January 4, 1943) was a famous Soviet navigator. She later became one of over 800,000 women in the military service, founding three female air regiments which would eventually fly over 30,000 sorties in World War II. Raskova was among the first women awarded with the title Hero of the Soviet Union.
The stamp features a portrait of Raskova against route of fly, compass, slide rule, and navigation protractor.
