Recommended Posts

Thanks for photo, here's one more from some of the auctions sites, obviously lower quality, sample, different producer, fake even?

Aye,they are indeed lower quality but I do not wish to believe they are copies, maybe other makers?

 

From the other hand, as you can see from the original website Serbian Armed Forces photo that you post, the General Stab badge of mine has the "french flowers" next to the Eagles legs, while the one you post from it doesn't, but lets keep it as an aside mark and not say they are copies.....

I really don't know what to think about those two. Details are very poor, they have that "cheap" look, quality of the wreath and eagle are nowhere near yours,"enamel" is different, take a look at the handles of the sabers...

Order of the White Eagle with Swords 1st class awarded to chief of the general staff Ljubiša Diković (Љубиша Диковић).

I believe he is the first recipient of 1st class order.

Paul, these are Republika Srpska [independent entity within Bosnia and Herzegovina] awards, if that's what you are asking.   Sash with badge = Order of Nemanjic  while other is Karageorge Star.  These well designed awards reprize elements of Kingdom of Serbia awards.  see also GMIC thread 'Medals from the Republika Srpska'.  Image from a Republika Srpska site shows a display of some awards in cases.

Greetings Paul,

Those are actually Republika Srpska decorations. The one with the sash is Order of Njegoš 1st class (it comes togehter with breast star). The other one is Order of the Star of Karađorđe, it could be part of a 1st class (badge worn on sash + golden breast star) or 2nd class set (badge worn on neck ribbon + silver breast star).
There were more information in Republika Srpska topic, unfortunately as you said photos are still not available...

    • 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.
