Different types of Yugoslav Order of Bravery


Recommended Posts

Hello Gents,

I'm in need of a translation of both a document and the reverse inscription on a suspension plate of an Order for Bravery I recently acquired :

Thank you and best regards,

Hendrik

Another example I got recently with its number and a name of the recipient written on the bottom of the box. The suspension of the order is of Soviet production. Unfortunately, the document is missing

Document summary: 

Recipient is sergeant Milan Ž. Mijatov

He was awarded with an Order of Bravery number 50,587 on 11th of August 1947.

 

Suspension translation:

First row: Mijatović Milan (seems like an extended name of the name on the document, or should I say, the name on the document is shortened)

Second row: Perica Lalić (another name, although I don't know why is there another, different name here)

Third row: "p.poručnik rođ." (short for "potporučnik rođen" which means "2nd lieutenant born")

Fourth row: 1st August 1925 Melenci (his date of birth and Melenci being his birth place)

Melenci is a village located in Serbia, region of Vojvodina to be more precise. 

 

Hendrik, nice set by the way! Can you post a photo of the medal including reverse? We don't see many medals with it's original document and matching serial numbers.

By the way, I've never seen an engraved suspension before. It kinda adds a spice to the item and gives more information on a recipient. All in all, I really like it!

Thank you very much BalkanCollector for your quick reaction to my question. The suspension inscription with its two names remains a bit of a mystery then ! Some pictures of the medal itself :

A very nice set I got in the beginning of this year. It was awarded to rezervni zastavnik (reserve sergeant) in 1949. During the war he was a fighter of the First Lika Partisan Deatchment "Velebit" and later in the 6th Lika Division. 

Both his name and the number of the order are written on the top of the box, plus there's also a number of the order written on the bottom of the box.

Another example I got recently with its number and a name of the recipient written on the bottom of the box. The suspension of the order is of Soviet production. Unfortunately, the document is missing. The recipient was a very elite diverzant (saboteur) who became a general-major after the war.

    • 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.
