Hi,

Here are mine. First 3 badges were found together, the badge portraying General Mihailovic is French made (probably for Serbian emigrees), as for the other two I have no idea where they have been produced.

Regarding the last badge I believe it was a cap badge (it has two pin on reverse), but which service ?

Best regards

Bill

Here´s an infantry officer´s parade badge. The background material was made of red plush. This got some wear though. As other badges, the chetniks used what they have been wearing in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia service.

Hello Lightfoot,

Here is the reverse of the badges. Do you know what is the Serbian double headed eagle badge with the double pin on reverse for? I think it could be a cap badge, but I don't know for which service !

Sincerely yours

Bill

Bill I think you are right that it was used on a cap "Shajkaca" traditional serbian cap. You could put a badge like that on the cap that I posted. Sometimes they made their own local badges. Have you seen the enameled cap cockades? They all have 2 pins for the caps.

Not to be blunde,

but the Ravna Gora Chetnik badge ( first one from the left from the lot picture ) it's a copy or reproduction,

take it as you like,I don't mean it's made on purpose to fool someone and buy it for a full price....

The backside pin isn´t a tradionally one if I may say and this piece haven´t got so nice details.

I understand what you are saying,but again not to leave wrong impressions, I really mean that the badge is not the one that was awarded to Chetniks in exile from the King or his representatives.

These are very expensive pieces and well ranked in high demand, so someone really has to pick up the correct reference literature instead of buying suspicious badges that think that are original

FYI, you may willing to trade your Parade Infrantry dagger with this badge, but it's kind of impossible ,as the badge is quite more expensive than the dagger ;)

If it was Air Force Kingdom dagger, then we could talk about it :D

That's a great looking sajkaca Lightfoot. Not many original pieces like that floating around. I have an infantry NCO sajkaca. Will post the pictures

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
