Order of Suvorov (recipients from Yugoslavia)

Recommended Posts

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!

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
