I would like to have some more information about the regimental badges that were in use during Carol IIís reign. I have to admit that I know almost nothing about them except that they were introduced by Carol II for the officers that served a number of years (7 or more) in a particular regiment. I think I read somewhere that he thus tried to introduce a tradition similar to that of the French regiments, but the use of regimental badges did not seem to last long in the Romanian army. Do you know when they were introduced and how did their use come to an end? Was it an official decision to discontinue their use? Were there any other badges used in the Romanian army except the pilot and observer badges as well as the badges of the graduates of the Military Academy?

I think I have somewhere photos of two regimental badges. I will post the images as soon as I will find them. But I will appreciate if you would post any image of the regimental badges in your collections.

This is not a Romanian regimental badge, but it is somehow related to Romania.
It belongs to the Russian 18th Infantry Regiment "King of Romania".

This unit was also called 18th Infantry Regiment "Wologda".

A reference book supposedly exists written in Romanian. I have seen a copy of a page from it. Maybe someone in the Forum knows of it. I have several of the badges and will try to post them for you. I gave up trying to collect them because of the sheer number and lack of information.

Thanks a lot for the information and for the offer to post your images (may I help you somehow?).

I am not into collecting regimental badges, but when I stumbled upon some images I have also found that there is very little information about them.

What's the story behind this regiment? How they got this name? I presume that was during WW I, isn't it?

Sorry, I do not know the history of this regiment. But I guess that it got the "King of Romania" name during the visit of King Carol I to Russia sometime in the end of the 19th century. It was common practice to give a regiment the name of a visiting sovereign and to the sovereign an honorary commission in that regiment.

According to Andolenko Carol I was the honorary commander of the Vologda (as opposed to Wologda) Infantry Regiment from 1898 to 1917. Vologda is a Russian province north of Moscow.
I don't know anything else about the regiment.

Do you know what was the Romanian regiment entitled "Czar of Russia"? What has happened to its name after the Russian revolution of 1917?

I can't find any regiment by that name in my reference books-any additional information?

I just thought that if a regiment entitled "King of Romania" existed in the Russian army, one entitled "Czar of Russia" or something similarly should have existed in the Romanian army.
