ODLOMAK IZ LITERATURE:
“In Falanovo Brdo and later in Lizoperce, the Battalion stayed for a full six days. We held meetings, sorted out our clothes and shoes, rid ourselves of lice, and bathed, truly resting. Our only obligation was to control the gases on the Neretva River, which was done through patrols, organized by platoons. One evening, as they were returning from a meeting in the village, MUSTAFA ALIKALFIĆ BRKO, a student, ĐORĐE BOROZAN, a worker, MUSTAFA LAKIŠIĆ, a worker, and SABRIJA PUZIĆ, the platoon commissar, a student, all from Mostar, encountered a Chetnik ambush. The Chetniks crossed the Neretva using a boat and killed our comrades who were moving in a group. There was sporadic gunfire throughout the night, especially from the Chetniks on the other side of the Neretva, dispelling their own fear. And none of us paid attention to the gunfire from the railway. At dawn, the patrol discovered the dead comrades, from whom the Chetniks had taken off their clothes and shoes. A great sorrow fell over the Battalion due to the loss of these old fighters who had been with us since the beginning of the uprising.”
