Serbia - Photographs and postcards of Serbian soldiers

Recommended Posts

Not my field but could be Czechoslovakian Avia BH-33E.

According to some sources we bought 20 airplanes in 1929 together with a licence to produce 24 more. I think that they were made by Ikarus.

Very nice pictures: lot of detail. Are the squarish caps on the rankers are typical of the Serbian Army for this period?

Very much so. Makes a Serbian ranker instantly identifiable from pre-WW1 through WWII. But in fact the pattern came from Austria in the 1880s or '90s.

Kingdom of Yugoslavia, 1930-ies.

Interesting photo, thanks for sharing.

That type of Air Force uniform was introduced with regulation from 1937.

Interesting photo, should be from before December 1932 as the factory was completely relocated to Zemun at that time.
Novi Sad factory was producing seaplanes while the fighters were being made in Zemun.

Hydroplane Šimika, made by Ikarus. Picture taken in Kumbor, probably in 1925.

By the way it was reintroduced in 2006 and Serbian Air Force uses it today. The adopted solution was criticized because of the color pattern.
