Got this old veteran magazine pouch yesterday, wondering if anyone could make out what it says, especially the ink inside the flap. Thanks!

The front says:

Rank:…
Last Name:…
Title:… (as in title or position held within a company). The ink says "security guard".

The ink inside the flap doesn’t make sense – I can make out or guess some of the words, but not the entire phrase. HTH.

Have you tried "Tomovich" he does translations I think.

Best I can make of it is: Asan Kumana from Razgrat from Kvartal (Sch?) K Orel. My translators(wife and daughter) are sleeping so this is the best I can come up with. "Ot" can be translated several ways. Can mean "from" or "of". Tomovich probably has a better handle on this than I do.

Top- Rank, last name, section/unit. Last word is misspelled.

bottom-


Guys name (wife says its Eastern, like Chechnya)

other stuff doesnt really make any sense...

Others already have the name right and the basic gist of it correct. Remember, Bulgarian, while in Cyrillic, is not Russian. That word "Kvartan"?? Might be a derivative of the word Kvartiri (apartment) so maybe like 'Unit', or 'division' or 'squad' or something like that. And name is definitely "Arabic" in nature, like Chechin, Georgian, maybe Azerbijani??? Turkmenistan?? You get the drift...........

Sorry can't do more than that................

The bottom one looks like an address, the last line means "Orel", the name of a City. I believe , my cyrillic is quite rusty

EDIT:

On closer scrutiny, I thought I saw numbers but I don't think they are. The last word still looks like Orel to me, but the rest is not clear enough. Sorry

Dude, Chechnya...and the Kavkaz are down south... not east. :)
But, I know the Russians lump them all into Vostochni Natsionalnosti...
or Eastern Nationalities...
