Soldiers funeral, Travnik
'93 James Mason

Soldier's funeral, Travnik

Travnik, Bosnia

A popular young officer had been killed and the whole town turned out for the funeral in Travnik's ancient cemetary. I was there with Jon Jones and was quite terrified. I couldn't believe the Serbs weren't going to shell the funeral, one of their favorite tactics. I think Jon Jones wanted to be in up close to shoot pictures, but I was standing back and shooting with a long lens. Having some kid stick an AK47 in your face is one thing, but standing around waiting for the big artillery shells to start dropping is another.

Do not bother to listen this story of an idiot. Serb cant understand so many thing. but sometimes they will. Shelling the street and funeral is common Serb tactics, they usually shot one and then they wait for 1 or 2 minutes and shell the same location with several artillery round, to make as much damage as possible.

you don't even have an answer to my comment do you? because it is true that these muslims and croats were the ones who started the shit, then when we retaliate it is an outrage....

it seems to me people like you are the only people who continue the hate between our two/three peoples.

and I am not a Cetnik, my Deda was killed in the second world war by chetniks because he was a PARTIZAN, meanwhile these guys' fathers and grandfathers were in the guard towers at Jasenovac....forgotten that have we?

Yes, yes, Serbs are the fascists haha

Always nice to hear from an articulate and well-balanced Chetnik.
