re: Red Banner,Baltic Fleet,121559

Here's the landing location from the citation:

Jõepera, Meeksi, 62505 Tartumaa, Estonia - Google Maps

From Soviet military announcements of the period (in Russian):

18 августа 1944
Юго-восточнее города Тарту наши войска заняли более 80 населенных пунктов, среди которых крупные населенные пункты Таммисту, Разина, Ахья, Валгеметса, Кротузе, Карсте. Наши войска, форсировав пролив между Чудским и Псковским озерами, захватили плацдарм на западном берегу пролива и соединились с частями, наступающими вдоль западного побережья Псковского озера; заняты при этом населенные пункты Лане, Иыпера, Мехикорма, Хаваметса, Рихтеметса, Араву, Кюка, Мекси, Сикакурму, Кастмекода.
