Yugoslav 1938/39 gendarmerie uniform regulations ?

Recommended Posts

The Branko Bogdanovic book "Two centuries of police in Serbia" mentioned the gendarmerie were due to get an updated uniform and insignia by 1941, but  it was only partially done.

  Anyone know what the 1938/39 insignia/ uniform were to be used ?

Army style collar patches replacing the narrow pointed patches, removal of piping on cuffs/ trousers?

Soft crowned officers style caps for all ranks.

Hello, Probably the changes in the uniform included the replacement of the Serbian cap by a peaked cap of the type used by Police officers , but in olive khaki or grey green . Milenko Brakovic was a member of the Serbian Gendarmerie mantained by the German occupants .He and other gendarm were the first deads of the Partisan Uprising in occupied Yugoslavia. In Bela Cerkva . if you enter  his name and Bela Crkva to search . it will appear a photo of Brakovic wearing the 1941 uniform

Hello dave123, after the desintegration of Yugoslavia in March April 1941, the Serbian nation remained . under the administration of General Nedic who formed a puppet government. Serbia got reduced to her 1914 borders. Nedic government controlled the Police and the Gendarmerie remaining. both ex Yugoslavians . surely both weared the uniforms in use until 1941 and in the case of the Gendarmerie thats means the modified one
