Unknown Officer and Sailor - Serbian? WW1?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Im having a hard time to identify the nation of those guys. The officer looks like he is wearing a Serbian ww1 officer uniform but the navy guy? Also can anyone read the cap tally?

You could be correct.  The army uniform certainly looks Serbian and so does the naval one.  Here is a picture of Serbian sailors of the River Flotilla on the monitor Bodrog.  Unfortunately, this is the best uniform picture that I can find.  I am unable to translate the cap tally for you.

Regards,

Gordon

These are Kingdom Yugoslavia sailor and soldier(officer???). Cap tally says "Torpiljarka T6" which means "Torpedo boat T6". Torpedo boat T6 is ex Austro-hungarian Tb 93F. It even served in Italian navy during ww2 but crew sank it after capitulation 1943.


  If you are not interested in this photo I would gladly buy it or trade something cause I am collecting Kingdom Yugoslavia navy photos.

This is photo of SMS Bodrog and Austro-Hungarian sailors. SMS Bodrog later became Yugoslav monitor Sava.

just to add that former monitor Bodrog from the first picture still exists and there is a plan to be completely reconstruct at the very place from which he fired first shots in the First War World at Belgrade, Serbia.
