This order is something to expect.Yugoslav decorations are after those from countries from Eastern block, but before the ones from U.K., and especially USA, which stands at the very last place...

I believe the order goes as follows:
-USSR
-Mongolia
-North Korea
-Bulgaria
-East Germany
-Poland
-Czechoslovakia
-Yugoslavia
-United Kingdom
-France
-USA

You have great sense for details, and good eye. Just to add that Legion of honour is incomplete...

Any clue which model is Yugoslav Order of national liberation?

Thanks :) Looks like type 3, the most common one. Depends how you count, first type - Soviet, second type - unusual Yugo type, only a few known examples, and this one, type three.

Nice photo, it's a bit curious to see a general and a people's hero without a single first class order.
Order of Merits for the People might be 1st class but I think lower class is more likely.

That's indeed strange. I agree that the Order of Merits for the People is most likely lower class, the 2nd class considering him being a People's Hero, "prvoborac" (I don't know how to translate this properly :)) and 2 classes of Partisan Star.

I think that I've found him. It should be general-major in reserve Milancic Miljevic for BiH, but there's no data about his other decorations...

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.

Found this photo on the local flea market. Quite an impressive group including a Spomenica, two Orders for Bravery and a Medal for Bravery. Too bad there isn't a name on the back.
