Do you have original serbian / royal yugoslav chetnik items from WWII ? Let us see your badges, cockades, patches and daggers or other items.

Now that you have mentioned daggers, I also noticed big amount of them being offered and sold. They are mostly coming from the same sellers some of them are of pretty good quality others not, but that doesn't mean that they are fake. Also there couple of "types" of these daggers looking pretty much the same with sometimes different details for example different type of material used from the handle.

Do you perhaps have some photos of those fake chetnik daggers? I'm really interested to see how they look like and compare them with others from ebay.

Now this is an original of lieutenant colonel Sinisha "Pazarac" Ocokoljic that was one of the closest officer´s of General Mihailovich. He was the organizator of the withdrawal to Slovenia. He managed to escape to Austria, but there he was kidnapped by Tito´s agents after the war and brought to Belgrade at a show trial. He was tortured and executed.

3rd, skull with crossed bones on scabbard looks pretty much the same as the one used on M24ČK knife worn by the members of četnik (assault) units within regular army.

What about this type? Good or fake? I've seen three examples just like that in short period of time.

First.

One of the most beautiful daggers I have ever seen! Could you perhaps post just a little bit larger photos? :)

    • 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.
