Jul-15-14  zanzibar: Curious as to source for dob.

NIC gives ca 1910 (ca = circa):

(NIC also gives circa 1910 for his brother(?), Zarko)

Jul-15-14  zanzibar: Is this the same Vojislav Popovic?

<Vojislav Popović 1900-1993 (administrative stuff and librarian 1946-1963)>

And did he perhaps author this book?

Jul-15-14  zanzibar: And what to make of this?

<Kingdom of Yugoslavia edit Edit

On 6 April 1941, the first day of the German invasion of Yugoslavia, 36th group of the 5th fighter regiment of the Yugoslav Royal Air Force, equipped with obsolete Hawker Fury biplanes, scrambled to defend their airfield, Režanovačka Kosa, from a strafing attack by approximately 30 Messerschmitt Bf 109s and Bf 110s. In the ensuing uneven dogfight at least three Yugoslav pilots—Captain Konstantin Jermakov, <<*>Captain Vojislav Popović<*>>; and Lieutenant Milorad Tanasić—each rammed a German fighter with fatal results on both sides.[14]>
