PORTRAIT OF THE COMMANDANT : ARMED WITH A RIFLE AND HAND GRENADES : WEARING AN AMMO BELT

This vintage postcard features a well armed soldier ready for battle. He is wearing an ammunition belt and at least a couple of hand grenades. He also has a rifle although only the barrel of the gun is visible. What nation is this warrior fighting for? Who is he fighting against? I wish I had answers. An inscription on the reverse of the photo indicates that the soldier is the Commandant (Commander) of his unit. The year that this photo was taken, according to the inscription is 1942. I believe, though not very confidently, that the language on the reverse of the photo is Greek. Perhaps this is a Greek or Turkish officer. This photograph was trimmed from a postcard. It measures about 2″ x 3″ and is in very good condition.

  1. Hello,
    I believe the text is in Cyrillic (serbian) and not Greek. Furthermore, could we have a better resolution of the insignia on the cap? The guy could be a Partisan and a member of the National Liberation Army from Yugoslavia. Does anybody have some Cyrillic knowledge?
    Have a nice day.
    Jacques
