The last living People's Hero of Yugoslavia turns 100

Recommended Posts

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".

My best compliments for the living yugoslav Hero!

The last Albanian hero was General Rahman Parllaku. He died in 2019, a few months after reaching the age of 100.

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian
