    Looking at the photo on his Wikipedia page I'd say you're most probably right.
    Just a small remark, to my understanding he was a regular officer - officer on active duty, when he got retired he became a reserve officer.

    Today's flea market finds.

    Two captains. The left one is wearing an Order for Merits for the People (2nd or 3rd class), 2 Orders for Bravery and a Medal for Bravery. The right one is wearing an Order for Merits for the People (2nd or 3rd class) and an Order for Bravery.


    Soldier on the left is most likely wearing a Medal for Bravery. On the right is a Corporal (if I'm not mistaken) wearing a Medal for Merits for the People.


    Lieutenant? (potporučnik) wearing an an Order for Merits for the People (2nd or 3rd class), an Order for Bravery and a Medal for Bravery.


    Captain wearing an Order for Merits for the People (2nd or 3rd class).


    The last one isn't actually wearing medals but ribbons instead. Captain (you can't see his ranks but it writes in the back of the photo) with 2 Orders for Bravery ribbons and another one which I can't determine.

    I've already posted this in the topic below, but I think it also belongs here.


    I bought this photo in an antique shop in Skopje, Macedonia.

    Yugoslav Major-General Svetozar Vukmanović "Tempo", giving a speech in Kumanovo, Macedonia in 1945. He's wearing a Yugoslav Order of the Partisan Star 1st class, Partisan Commemorative award of 1941 and a Soviet Order of Kutuzov 1st class.
