Unknown Serbian (or Yugoslav) badge D S ?


Recommended Posts

Hello Gentlemen,

I am trying to figure out what this small Serbian (or Yugoslav) badge stands for ? :

Any ideas ? Looks like the cyrillic letters D and S, maybe not military but political ?

Badge is 21 x 12 mm, silvered bronze, enameled, no maker, pin back.

Cheers

Bill

Greetings Bill,

Those are definitely Cyrillic letters D and S. First thing that comes to my mind is Democratic Party (Демократска странка).

Although if it really is pin from pre-WW2 Democratic Party it would be more logical to see Yugoslav flag rather than Serbian.

Hello Paja,

Thanks for your opinion. Your probably right this should be the Democratic Party badge, in fact I even suspect this to be a badge from the Democratic Party in exile (that is after WWII, between 1945-48, probably made in Paris) hence the use of the Serbian flag instead of the Yugoslav flag.

Cheers

Bill

There was also Chivalrous Society Dušan the Mighty founded in 1892 which existed until WW1. Although not related to that society Chetnik mentioned they issued couple of medals and the society's fence club had very interesting breast badge similar to academy badge.

    • 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.
