Decorations from the collections of the Serbian museums


Recommended Posts

Hmm.... any Japanese orders awarded to Serbians? :D:)

Somehow I completely overlooked your question, unfortunately so far I don't remember seeing Japanese orders.

If I dig something up I will post it here :) Or perhaps it would be better to start a new topic, Serbs with foreign decorations, so that I don't overcrowd this one...

Diplomatic uniform according to regulation from I believe 1931, II class: Counselor and Consul General.

Thank you for posting this photo of a diplomatic uniform, Paja. I am fascinated by them and am always interested to see examples from different parts of the world. Do you know of an online source which would set out, in visual form, the specifications followed by Serbian diplomats at this time - or, at least, shows more images of them?

Don't mention it, my pleasure.

Unfortunately I can't think of any online source like that but if you wish I can post more photos of our diplomats from pre-WW2 era.

Here is a link to an article about Serbian and Yugoslav diplomatic uniforms on the website of the Serbian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It lists all the uniform ranks at the end with specifications.

This seemed like the best place to post couple of pictures from the exhibition held in Australia two years ago I recently stumbled upon online.

"On Sunday, 15th July 2012, the parish of St Sava Mona Vale, commemorated the 100th Anniversary of the Liberation of Kosovo and Metohija (First Balkan War 1912-1913). At the St. Sava Pro-Cathedral the day began with the celebration of the Holy Liturgy by Very Rev. Stavrophor Fr. Saša Radoičić and deacons Nemanja Mrđenovic and Želimir Milović.
In the Parish hall an exhibition was prepared of royal orders, decorations, medals and cocardes of the period 1859 to 1941. The collection is substantial and represents one of the best examples of Serbian militaria and royal orders in the southern hemisphere. Keen collectors and enthusiasts are Very Rev Fr Saša and Mr Slavko Marinkov."

Artillery captain first class mundir according to the regulations from 1935 most easily recognized by the single row of buttons (before 1935 and from 1939 onward buttons were in two rows).

M1939 dagger.

    • 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.
