Koča Popović's (Коча Поповић) Order of People's Hero & Order of Hero of Socialist Labor.

Between them membership card of the Association of Yugoslav Volunteers in the Spanish Republican Army 1936-1939.

Does anyone recognize third decoration on the photo?

Dragomir,

Thank you very much for quick response! I suspected it could be that order as it is listed on wiki page about Koča Popović, unfortunately I wasn't able to find a single photo of it for comparison.

Peko Dapčević's uniform and Order of the People's Hero together with Partizanska spomenica (what would be the best English translation of the name of that decoration? Partisan Commemorative Badge? Medal?)

    • 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.
