Rural police , Serbian State Guard ?

Post by druid12 » 10 Sep 2019 17:48

Just found these photos recently, are they of the rural police , Serbian state guard ?
No idea of the uniform or collar patch colours.
Perhaps using the 1920s-mid 30s dark blue police uniform and red patches.

Hello,

These photos were copied from Bojan Dimitrijević's "Vojska Nedićeve Srbije 1941-1945".

The first two photos show members of the Serbian Border Guard (Srpska granična straža, SGS).
The second two photos show members of the Serbian State Guard (Srpska državna straža, SDS).

If you're interested in the subject, I recommend you to find a copy of the book.
The author also often commented the colour/type of pictured uniforms.

Cheers,
Ivan
