Russian Cadet Corps Badge

Recommended Posts

I just noticed this badge among finished auctions on ebey, is it original?
Information about the Russian Cadet Corps (Русский кадетский корпус) can be found on Russian Wiki page LINK. It was located in the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes/Kingdom of Yugoslavia and according to Wiki it was the first foreign and the last remaining Russian cadet corps.

It looks quite nice, although I`ve never seen this variation before.

Thanks for that, Nick!

RCC was based in Serbian town of Bela Crkva. Couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon Serbian documentary about Wrangel on Youtube, that's when I heard for the first time that more than 2500 Russians lived there in the interwar period. It is estimated that around 75.000 Russians found their new home in the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.

There's a small museum called the Russian room in Bela Crkva today and a Russian church built in I think 1930. Some 650 Russians found their final resting place in that town, 19 generals among them.

Above-mentioned documentary "Јего благородије барон Врангел" in case someone's interested. It is in Serbian, unfortunately no subtitles but still one can see many interesting photos and films.

Hello paja, everyone,

just now on serbian auction is published another one, here is the link 


Seller of course states that is original, but as i checked on several russian forums obviousely this is newly made copy, known as Belgrade copy. I think that this copy is coming from the same kitchen where serbian and kingdom of yugoslavia cockades are made

    • 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.
