    Thanks but this is not in my interest, now are just ghosts from the past ... ( gone to right collector hands who is interested in it ). I have still some things for memory like small assault backpack that is with me almost 30 years and another earlier type of backpack used before using of transport bags... ( using it for woods missions Wink )
    JNA things are not rare but soon it will be because lot of them are cleaned from army warehouses ( ending in trash or destroyed ). From time to time I get a large quantity of new M70 bayonets ( last was about 150 cause I couldn't store 400 of them in my house ) and some other army things to sell.
    I'll put pictures of backpacks later...

    Good to see some JNA field equipment. I'm searching and searching for the fiberglass para helmet and boots from the 1960s/1970s. They don't turn up often.

    It's really rare helmet even here and I'm looking every day our auction sites where sometimes is possible to find rare JNA things ( some good things are sold only localy and on ebay is poor offer ). Have you tried to contact someone from Serbia ? I think there are better chances to find it ...


    ..lets continue

    Assault backpack
    +"tent wing" in camo pattern ( older type was green and first type "white" )


    Standard soldier backpack
    ( early type later replaced with transport bag )

    This is quite popular and still in use, there is also a Croatian type from 90s with darker green color but plastic quality is bad


    M-1(M59) Gas mask, PAP M59 rifle cleaning kit + stripper clips

    Keep those pictures and descriptions coming! JNA equipment is not a common topic, so it is good to see some examples.

    I have few things left but friend has more on his attic, so one day we must go to his parents house to see what is left.
    ( there people had buried cannons near houses ). Ten years ago it was still common to see all kinds of JNA mines, hand grenades, explosives, ammo etc. in someone's room ( 1992-2000 I had all kind of before mentioned stuff ).
    Remember that in former Yugoslavia every holiday related to celebrating JNA army or victory in WW2 our school were visiting local base ( near school and 20m from my house later in 90s become Croatian army base ) and there was presented all kind of equip, weapons etc. , so it was normal for example that you know assemble/disassemble M70 rifle... Now just memories of nice times since we all local kids grown playing in that base ( our little playground ).

    If anyone interested i have some materials about JNA like sabotage manual, cookbook ...

    Box of primer for 120mm


    Pouch for scorpion magazines
    Mint condition found in warehouse but someone used shoe cream to paint it in black ( original color is standard lite brown like soldier shoulder straps on picture )


    Map and older type of canteen


    Canten was thrown in sea while JNA was leaving my town so it lost original SMB (GOC grey-olive-color) and patch is student opštenarodne odbrane ( Student of nation wide defence )

    ...just for orientation


    My town is rich with war history from ww1 and ww2 and lot of military stuff you could find even now not far from town center.
    Some of them are quite dangerous like old italian OTO hand grenades from ww2 and there are lot of them like mushrooms..
