Alright guys I need help with a trench art translation...on the stock of one of my M70B1 kits there is a carving of the Serbian cross with the letter C's around it and underneath the cross is has "гарда" carved into it. I think I have that translated to mean "guard"? But I don't know...if it did mean "guard" would that have any significant meaning? Thanks a lot!

Yes, that does translate as "Guard." It may reference one of the right-wing Serbian paramilitary units, the Serbian Guard. Could also reference the Arkanovci — The Serbian Volunteer Guard.

Maybe someone else will be able to pin this down.
