Greetings Igor,

According to those tables Stevan Jankovich was a private in Šumadijski korpus (Shumadija corps), II division, Kragujevacka brigada (Kragujevac brigade).

You have mentioned Silver Bravery Medal in the post #3, is it Serbian. Are there complete lists of all of the people that were decorated during the war in

that book? And do you maybe have complete scans of it?

Regards,

Radmilo

Yes, you are right, it is 2nd artillery regiment. My apologies, for some reason I completely overlooked the last column.

So Stevan Jankovic was a private in 2nd artillery regiment of the Kragujevac brigade of the 2nd division of the Shumadija corps.
