Ethnic Albanian Forces in Kosovo, Serbia and Macedonia
Volunteer of Presevo, Medvedja and Bujanovac Liberation Army

The UQPMB wore the same sleeve and beret badges as the Kosovo UQK, but with the inscription ‘USHTRIA QLIRIMT ARE E PRESHEVES, MEDVEGJES DHE BUJANOCIT’ and the initials ‘UQPMB’. This fighter is wearing an obsolete 1960s JNA camouflage uniform, and has pulled on a woollen face mask to avoid recognition by the Serbian Police.

Military Policeman, National Liberation Army (Black Mountains and Tetovo) Macedonia

The UQK (NMET) wore the same uniforms as the Kosovo UQK, with similar red cloth sleeve and beret badges showing a black two-headed eagle, the black inscription ‘USHTRIA QLIRIMT ARE KOMBET ARE’ and the initials ‘UQK’. This man wears black civilian clothing, and on the left upper sleeve a white-edged black brassard with a beret badge and the white initials 'PU' for Policia Ushtarake - Military Police; there was also a plain black armband with larger white letters. The Albanian National Army probably wore similar beret and sleeve badges, with the inscription ‘ARMATA KOMBETARE SHQIPTARE’ and the initials ‘AKSH’.

Officer, Kosovo Liberation Army


Ethnic Albanian guerrillas in Kosovo, southern Serbia and Macedonia used any camouflage uniforms they could find, capture or smuggle, often combined with civilian - particularly black - items; this officer wears a German Army M94 camouflage uniform. On the left upper sleeve the UQK wore a red cloth straight-sided shield with a black two-headed Albanian eagle, gold piping, the inscription ‘USHTRIA QLIRIMTARE E KOSOVES’ and the initials ‘UQK’. A smaller round cloth badge was worn on a black or red beret or peaked camouflage field cap. No rank insignia were worn.
