When reading about Mayor-General Konstantin Ivanov Bekiarov I encountered this:

Свързочен полк

So what kind of regiment did he become commander of in 1935?

Can any of you Bulgarian wizards help with a translations?

Major-General Stefan Khristov Boyadzhiev held the post of DGPM (Latin letters) in 1940. Does anybody know what that abbreviation stands for?

What exactly are you reading? Does DGPM stands for the Cyrrillic abbreviation ДГПМ?

Hi Dibo,

I have been so lucky that I have got hold of a copy of: Офицерскят Корпус В Бългрия 1878-1944 г. (So far only Vol. 1 but waiting for the rest)

However it is a bit difficult to use it when you are not familiar with all the Bulgarian abbreviations  And yes DGPM stands for the Cyrillic abbreviation ДГПМ. It is just troublesome for me to write the Cyrillic letters. I should have made it clearer.

Do you have any idea what it stands for? It just says: ДГПМ 1940 г.

Kind Regards

As far as I remember correctly there should be a List of the Abbreviations used (probably it should be something like Списък на използваните съкращения), either at the beginning or at the end of the Volume. Check there.
If the answer is not there I'll check myself next time I get to the library. Unfortunately I still do not own a copy of this book.

Regards

Dibo

Yes - there is a small list of abbreviations at the beginning. Unfortunaly ДГПМ is not among them. I thought that is was a common Bulgarian military abbreviation.

Never heard of it. :?
The closest acronym I know is ДГМ - Дирекция на гражданската мобилизация - Civil Mobilisation Directorate. It existed in 1940-1945 to coordinate the efforts of the war economy. It is possible that П may stand for Промишлена (Industrial), however I have never heard of Civil and Industrial Mobilisation Directorate :?
Of course I may be totaly wrong nad the acronym may stand for something entirely different....
