Dear Edward, it is amazing to know that you find a grave of Croatian soldiers from First World War. I know that many of Croatian soldiers were in Russia and Ukraina in First World War in the army of Austrian Empire, but I never saw their graves. Thank you for this picture, greetings from Croatia, Marin

It should be the grave of Croatian soldiers from the 42nd Home Guard Infantry Division of the Triune Kingdom of Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia. It is known as the Devil's Division. Its warriors were incredibly brave, so the enemy armies (Serbs, Montenegrins, Russians, Cossacks, Italians) were horrified fighting with them. They were mainly from the area of Zagreb and Osijek. The inscription on a burial board is not complete, but it could be the 25th Home Guard Infantry Regiment from Zagreb ("Zagreb" and "25") as part of the Devil's Division. Yugoslav President Josip Broz was a sergeant of the 25th Regiment.

Properly it should be written on the gravestone:

BOG I HRVATI (it means: God and the Croats). SLAVA IM means GLORY TO THEM. The shield on the bottom should be with white and red fields, not yellow and green.

thx for this pic, best wishes

It's unusual that it survived all these years! Many croatian soldiers were fighting in Galicia and Bucovina in WW1, especially from area around Zagreb where I live. My great grandfather was fighting there and he fortunately survived the war and returned home when it ended!

Greetings from Croatia, Marcel

I read with interest comments posted under the photos, thank you. It was an interesting format of the monarchy. I wonder if the EU or the monarchy' life will be longer. About Tito! You know that Marshal Tito's brother - Broz Márton - lived in Sopron? Here is the National Geographic article.


Best regards,
