The last living recipient of the Order of People's Hero of Yugoslavia, Colonel-General Petar Matić "Dule" turns 100 years old today. His medals and orders were stolen during the 90's and Serbia decided to give him a replacement Order of the People's Hero today. On this article they claim that the order was acquired on the "market of antiques".

I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
