    SERBIAN patch & badge collection

    Post by bond007a1 on Tue Mar 03, 2009 2:07 pm

    Unfortunately my patch collection is rather small from Serbia...with most of these coming from a guy in Serbia that sold me "a lot of Serbian patches" and unfortunately there was not an explanation of them...

    ARKAN TIGERS PATCHES
    The Serb Volunteer Guard - SDG (Serbian: Српска добровољачка гарда/Srpska dobrovoljačka garda) was a volunteer paramilitary unit founded and led by Željko Ražnatović, widely known as Arkan, during the Yugoslav wars.

    The unit members, nicknamed The Tigers or Arkan's Tigers (Serbian: Арканови Тигрови, Arkanovi Tigrovi), fought in Croatia (1991-1992); Bosnia and Herzegovina (1992-1995) and Kosovo and Metohija (1998-1999)(taken from Wikipedia).

    Here is what their flag looked like:

    Army of Republic Srpska-Vojska Republike Srpske(V.R.S.) Special Brigade of Military police sleeve patch. This unit was tasked with a special mission....protection of Radovan Karadzic, leader of Serbia at that time...patch was used during war in Bosnia (1992-1995)(This is the story that I received with this patch-so apparently it is a Presidential Guard type patch)

    Cool patches. The first pin with the 63 is identified in another post by NorBn as the 63rd Parachute Brigade.

    That’s a very nice 63 Parachute Bde badge, looks great. Here are some info on the patches in the first thread: I suspect the first round patch below the Militia/ Police arc has something to do with the Serb Republic in Krajina (in Croatia), but I have never seen this one before. The next two ones are Chetnik patches, the plastic on felt patch reads “S vjerom u Boga” or “In God we trust” and "Sloboda ili smrt" or "Freedom or death". Not sure about the last one, but I’ll se what I can find out.

    This was a police unit, formed in 1992 from 34 police officers (Serb nationality) who leave Bosnia and Herzegovina Ministry of Interior base Krtelji, in vicinity of Sarajevo. They took equipment, vehicles and weapons with them. Unit was reformed in 1998 under name SPECIJALNA JEDINICA MUPA RS (special unit of Ministry of interior of Republic of Srpska).
