ranks of OKNE as early as 1932 and was one of the most active and beloved
youths in the village. In 1934 he became a member of the Kostur regional
committee of OKNE and distinguished himself with his readiness to carry
out his work. At the time of the Metaxas dictatorship and later during

against fascism for the liberation of his homeland. In DAG he was among
the first to join and thanks to his talents and capabilities he rose
to the rank of company commissar.
