Order of Suvorov (recipients from Yugoslavia)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've been doing some research on Yugoslav recipients of Soviet awards and I've decided to share the information I've gathered. I'll do the first class first and post some photos I've found online.

There are five Yugoslav recipients of the first class.

1. Josip Broz Tito - awarded on October 4th 1944

2. Ivan Gošnjak -  awarded on June 20th 1956 (also awarded with the second class)

3. Arso Jovanović - awarded on October 15th 1945

4. Koča Popović - awarded on October 15th 1945 (also awarded with the second class)

5. Aleksandar Ranković - awarded on October 15th 1945

Koča Popović's Suvorov 2nd class. The photo of the order is from the same exhibition as his 1st class I've posted previously. The photo was taken by our forum member Paja and he posted it in the topic below, so many thanks to him!
