I received this some years ago but am aware it is celebrating a Serbian resistance against Axis-occupied Yugoslavia. Since it is in English, assuming it derives from an English speaking country. Any help on its origin would be appreciated.

Is it possible you show a scan or photo?
Sorry, too hasty!

Interesting item!

I've never seen a picture of Mihailovic without a beard.

He was the leader of the Yugoslav Chetniks which were founded at Ravna Gora in 1941.

In 1946 he was captured, tried and executed by the Yugoslav communist government.

I guess this label was issued by royalist/nationalist exiles.

Mihailovic was eventually rehabilitated by the Serbian High Court in 2015.

Here is Draza Mihailovic (without a beard) as a comics hero.

(from "Real Heroes Comics",1942)

Thank you Nigelic and vayolene for your insights. If it was issued by exiled royalist/nationalist exiles, I still wonder where it originated.

Britain withdrew its support from Mihailovic when it became clear that Tito's partisans were doing most of the fighting against the Germans.
