Yes, probably. The Russian types of "spomenica" were later changed for Yugoslavian types after the war.

Some more pictures of the partisan related items.

Super nice collection!!!!! I don't focus on Partisan so much but I am a BIG fan of Yugoslav Orders and medals.
For example here's an image of a display I made late last year featuring the Order of Military Merit and the Order of the People's Army. The background of this display consists of photocopies of the original documents. The original docs are safely stored away from sunlight/UV rays in binder with all my other paperwork..

So here we go.

The first is a quite rare partisan šajkača. The šajkača is a traditional Serbian hat, worn in the countryside, but also by the Serbian military during WWI. Again, it became the standard hat of Serbian chetniks during WWII, though its traditional peasant roots led also Serbian partisans to adopt it during the war years, before and along the titovka.

The hand-metal star is in brass. The hammer and sickle imply that the owner was either a member of a proletarian brigade, or a political commissar.




The second is a classic partisan titovka made of recovered material (probably British canvas) and red fabric star. Marked inside with a "10" and another non-readable stamp.




The third comes from a Belgrade home. Titovka in what seems to be German feldgrau wool fabric and hand-made brass red star. No lining.





Finally, a few partisan badges. On top, a badge issued in the summer of 1945 to blood donors on the Syrmian Front, the last German defense line on Yugoslav territory, bloodily fought until April '45. The inscription reads "Blood for heroic blood". Next, a small pin with Tito's silhouette, worn in war years by political commissioners, probably Soviet-made. Below, a few partisan "eggs", both Soviet and Yugoslav made, for officers and soldiers. On the right, a KNOJ badge, not in the best shape...



Hope you like it.

Best,
Drugo

Interesting indeed! Unfortunately the pics are way too big which makes this thread now a pain to watch.
