Trip to Macedonia (museums and antique shop finds)

Recommended Posts

I'd like to share some of the stuff I've seen in Macedonia and some of the stuff which I've bought in some of the local antique shops.

NI Institute and Museum Bitola. There's a part of the museum which is dedicated to Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. Firstly here are some of his uniforms. I doubt that those are actually his uniforms but still nice to see. I'd appreciate more knowledgeable members for futher information because I don't know much about them.

Other stuff from the Great War. Rifle, revolver, sabres, shells etc. Unfortunately I don't know names since it's not my area.

The last but not least, bought in an antique shop in Skopje.

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.

I'm really glad, I've found this gem!

Thank you very much for the input! 

The museum is actually located in the same building where the Military Academy of Monastir was situated.

I've actually forgot another thing I've bought in another antique shop in Skopje so here it is.

Member's card of the People's Front of Macedonia. Now I have three of those cards, another two being that of the People's Front of Croatia.

I am quite sure these are not postal stamps. These were used to mark that the membership fee has been payed. Like a receipt.

You're absolutely right. I wrote postal stamps in a hurry because I didn't know the proper word in English for it. Thank you for the input!
