Hello Ivan,
I can post few pictures made after liberation of Krk in april 1945., but on them there are no axis soldiers(not even as prisoners), only Yugoslav troops and civilians.
Pozdrav,
Jure

It shows German Panzermänner with chetniks in 1942.
What I find interesting is the chetnik commander in center;
I believe this is Radivoje Keroviæ, a commander from Majevica.
There are only 3 (to me) known photos of him and one of them shows him with commander of SS-Division "Handschar", Desiderius Hampel.

Hello,
I’m kinda new at this forum and my english is very bad so please sorry for my mistakes! Surfing on this forum I noticed that there are some pictures and topics about region where I live. I live in Majevica, in a small town Ugljevik. I’m interested in finding pictures and info about my region in WWII. Please post here, or send to my mail any thing you found about Ugljevik, Majevica or other references like: Semberija, Maleševci, Vukosavci, Djuro Bižiæ, Stevan Leka Damjanoviæ, Jeremija Laziæ, Radivoje Keroviæ, Veljko Lukiæ Kurjak, 17 Majevica brigade, 15 Majevica Brigade, Majevica NOP, Drinski cetnicki, and other names of know and unknown soldiers from wermacht, partizans, chetniks, zeleni kadar, ustaše, domobrani...

On the photo is Piat, partisans and Yugoslav writers usually called this weaphon "John Bull" (that name was more popular than name "Piat", some authors even name it "Đumbul") . In 1944 it was quite common in Yugoslav units.
