I really like that M51. I have never seen one of those before. Also, those are some amazing medal bars.

Those Yugoslav M51 submachine guns (cal 7.62mm), also known as Matić-Cvetić prototypes, were made especially for the Day of the Army (22. December) in a very limited number and were given to high officials, Tito's generals. I have read somewhere that the name of the receiver was inscribed on every piece.

Last year I was able to see in person and take a picture of the piece that used to belong to General Koča Popović.

Thanks Paul, even though there are a lot of museums in Serbia most of their websites are unfortunately either obsolete or very poor when it comes to presentation. Whatever I manage to find I'll put here. :)

Greetings Rogi, here are couple of pictures of that decoration from the Military Museum. By the way there is a scarce Medal of Queen Draga on ebay right now, starting price was 0.99$ and it went up to almost 2.000$!

Greetings Paul,

I believe that the medal that was on ebay was genuine. I don't like using pictures from ebay but here goes.

You are welcome Paul. Here is one interesting picture of Đorđe Vajfert (Georg Weifert) with his wife Marija wearing Princess Natalija medal.

Kind regards,

Radmilo

    • 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.
