Lightfoot thank you for your contribution to this subject!

Nice looking shoulder boards, well preserved.

Here is the table with colours of branches in army and navy according to the regulations from '22 and '24.

[Everything is in Serbo-Croatian language]

Signs of branches on the shoulder boards of the army according to the regulation from '32.

Artillery 1st captain shoulder boards, these are interesting because they are not made regular. They seems to be "shortened". Maybe the officer was not so broad shouldered :). The metal is also kind of made in a different pattern, that wasn´t so important.

Thanks for pictures, are all of these items in your possession, including artillery shoulder boards? I've seen those captain's shoulder boards somewhere before, maybe on some other forum...

Until '24 field marshals, army generals and division generals were using dark blue colour. After '24 they were using light blue colour, while the brigade generals were wearing colours of their branches.

All pictures that I´m showing is a part of my collection :). These artillery shoulder boards are bought on an auction and the picture is originally taken from the auction. Here´s another generals shoulder boards, it´s brigades general as you said with the infantry colour red on the back. Maybe it´s hard to see the colour.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
