  1. Milutin Morača (on the left) wearing his Kutuzov 2nd class. He is general-major on this photo unlike the quoted one when he was a pukovnik (colonel).
  2. Here's another photo of Peko Dapčević (on the right) wearing his Suvorov 2nd class.
  3. I'd like to update the list of recipients since I've found more names as well as dates and ranks for most of them at the time they got the award. Order of Kutuzov 1st class: 1. Bakarić Vladimir (15.10.1945.) 2. Čolaković Rodoljub (15.10.1945.) 3. general-lajtnant Dapčević Peko (15.10.1945.) 4. general-lajtnant Đilas Milovan (5.9.1944.) 5. Hebrang Andrija (15.10.1945.) 6. general-lajtnant Jovanović Arso (5.9.1944.) 7. Jovanović Blažo (15.10.1945.) 8. Kidrič Boris (15.10.1945.) 9. Kovačević Sava (posthumously) 10. general-lajtnant Milutinovi
  4. After some time, I'd like to update the list since I've found two more names and dates for the second class, plus an additional nine recipients of the third class. I've changed the format of the list which includes the recipients rank at the time he got the award. Order of Suvorov 1st class: 1. maršal Broz Josip (5.9.1944.) 2. general armije Gošnjak Ivan (20.6.1956.) 3. general-lajtnant Jovanović Arso (15.10.1945.) 4. general-lajtnant Popović Koča (15.10.1945.) general-lajtnant Ranković Aleksandar (15.10.1945.) Order of Suvorov 2nd class: 1. general-majo
  5. Wasn't this cross established in 1916? Karl became the emperor in November 1916. EDIT: Seems like we've replied at the same time. @GdC26
  6. What an amazing mapcase and a very amazing project! I have my grandpa's leather mapcase (Yugoslav People's Army) and it still has a lot of pencils, erasers, rulers and other stuff that he used. Not as cool as your piece though since it's much more common.
  7. Thank you for sharing these amazing pieces from your collection!
  8. Thank you for your quick response! The spying industry was blooming at the time so no wonder it had its representatives in the fair.
  9. Can someone help me identify this Czechoslovak badge with a year 1946 on it? It has a maker mark KARNET KYSELY on the back.
  10. Very nice badge! It's a youth railway 1947 shock worker badge. These are rarer than the regular shock worker badges with a year only. I've seen them go for as much as 20€.
  11. We're talking about some very expensive bananas here. 😂
  12. WOW, the details on this fruit bowl are out of this world!
  13. The road Čačak-Titovo Užice 1960 badge. It's interesting that the road was built the same year as parts of the Highway Brotherhood and Unity as shown in one of the previous posts. Other than that, I don't know much about the badge nor the labour action for which it was issued.
  14. These are amazing. I love the fact that so many of these are numbered and made of silver. Thank you very much for sharing them with us!
  15. Great! Please let me know when you open the thread in case I miss it.
