Need translation and derivation of Yiddish? words from "Sefer Serock" Yizkor Book #poland


Howard Orenstein
 

Hi All,
There's a sentence in the Serock Yizkor book that reads:

The military recruits (prizivnikes) in the military were called
"Losovnikes." (lamed alef samekh alef vav vav nun yud kuf ayin samekh)

I've seen prizivnikes refer to military recruits, although I'm not sure
of its derivation. Also, I've never seen the term Losovnikes and am not
sure of the reference in the sentence.

Please send me your thoughts on these 2 words.
Gratefully.
