Kingdom of Yugoslavia cap badge?


Recommended Posts

Hello Emanuel, thanks for your confirmation!

Yep it is ground dug, from a war end retreat area where also croatian stuff was found and POW crossed too. It is then most likely a discarded badge from a chetnik, I guess. Kind regards

If its a ground find from that area, then its most likely a badge that was on wear from Chetnik warriors that made a breakthrough and retreat from Croatia and Slovenia to Italy.

Battles occur during that retreat,so your guess is right.

I had a complete one in perfect condition with red cloth (infantry) on a NCO field green cap,but I pass it to a friend.

Hope in time ,you will share more of your finds ;)

Good day, I could use some help here in correctly ID this fragment of badge found.

I believe it's from the kingdom of Yugoslavia, but I would like to know if anyone would have used also till the war end.

Many thanks

Hi Lightfoot, the picture you attached is a different model of the NCO cap badge. It can be seen by how close the eagles beak is to the wing tip (I have the same badge). The book "Oznake jugoslovenske vojske u otazbini" by Branko Jeftic is an excellent reference for the topic.

Got that book but it´s a shame that the writer didn´t write explanations under the pictures in the book.

The difference in style is because these were produced in different work shops. Emblem without the background and cloth in colour of arms of service, is not a type, it is a badge with missing part.

    • 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.
