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.

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.

His military career took him to many different destinations. He served in Poland as a sub-lieutenant of the Finnish Guard and goes to Spain to fight in the war of Morocco, where he participates in the clashes of Spanish troops against the Moroccan rebels in 1859-1860.
For his bravery on the battlefield Becker gets the Cross of San Fernando
He collaborates in Mexico's civil war. In Greece's campaign against the Turks. In Egypt in favor of Ismael Pacha, who names Bey and in Serbia reaches the rank of Major Staff Colonel
There are pictures of him in the Serbian uniform, where he can see, among other decorations, the spanish Cross of San Fernando and the Medal of Africa of 1860

Does anyone know if it is possible to obtain more information in Serbian files about this person?

    • 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
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
