And one and only photo that I could find...This one is from region of Dalmatia as well.As previously stated MVAC in Montenegro-south of Dalmatia should be the same.Some historians claim that Chetniks where MVAC in all of Italian occupying zone. That is a contraversial issue.

In any case, you can find plenty of data on Chetniks on the net.
