|Posted by: dragos June 29, 2004 06:05 pm|
The Autochrome process was created in 1904 by the Lumières. However, at that time the colour pohotgraphy was extremely expensive. This is why most of the colour photographs during the world wars comes from the propaganda companies, not from the particular individuals.

Are you sure these are Russian soldiers? I saw they (some of them) have helmets attached on their knapsacks, apparently the French Adrian type. As I know, the Russian soldiers did not use any helmets during WW 1. Could they have been something like Russian volunteers on the Western front or "White" Russian troops after the Bolshevik revolution (also note the Lebel rifles)?
|Posted by: Ruy Aballe July 11, 2005 09:27 pm|
| The Imperial Russian army used the Adrian helmet during the Great War, mostly among the troops sent to France to fight alongside the French and British allies; the Russian Adrian helmets have an elaborate badge with the Czarist eagle - it was replaced with several national insignias and eventually with the red star after the fall of the Russian monarchy. Eventually, a local, licenced version of the Adrian helmet was made for the Soviet army. It was adopted in the late Twenties.
On the other hand, it should be noted that the Russians also developed an indigenous steel helmet based on the French design, the M. 1917. It was never issued in sizeable numbers to the troops due to the events that took place in Petrograd on the model designation year, but it ended up being used both during the Civil War and afterwards.
The original order called for the manufacture of 600.000 helmets, a task undertaken by two firms based in Finland (still a part of the Russian empire when the helmet was designed...), G.W. Sohlberg and V.W. Holmberg, apparently due to the proximity of the Petsamo nickel ore mines. The political unrest, the bolshevik revolution and the ensuing war prevented it from being issued in quantity, but some were used.
The production was resumed in the early Thirties.
|Posted by: Jeff_S July 13, 2005 04:01 pm|
Resumed by the Soviets (presumably outside of Finland)? Or resumed by the Finns?
|Posted by: Ruy Aballe July 15, 2005 10:19 am|
The production was resumed by the Soviets, outside of Finland. The Finnish army reissued a small number of the so-called Sohlberg helmet from ex-Czarist stocks. In spite of the very limited quantity available(c. 500 pieces), the helmet received a specific Finnish model designation, M. 18. I saw two of these Finnish helmets in Madrid; they were refurbished by the Finns in a rather improvised way - it is difficult to find identical leather work and linners.
The shortage of helmets in the Finnish army prompted the purchase of surplused Austro-Hungarian and German helmets from several sources in 1920 - M 16, M 17 and M 18 (80.000).

I just found this photo of Red Army soldiers wearing Adrian-style helmets:
|Posted by: Kepi December 30, 2005 07:14 am|
| During WW1 France delivered to its allies (Belgium, Serbia, Greece, Romania, Russia) a number of M.1915 Adrian helmets. Russia received a few tens of thousands in 1916, decorated in front with the Romanov double headed eagle. A simplified version of the Adrian helmet, made in one piece of steel, was also ordered in Finland (then a part of the Russian Empire) at Solberg factory. These helmets never equipped the whole Russian army. Some of them were captured by the Romanians when the Russians mutinied on the Moldavian front in 1917-18.
The Russian Adrian helmets were carried during the Civil War especially by some White units as a symbol of their attachment on the Allied cause. During the Communist era, Adrian helmets, now repainted in light khaki and decorated with a big five pointed red star, were carried during the Moscow 1 of May and 7 of November parades, in the 1920s and 1930s, but apparently only the troops of the Moscow garrison received this headgear. From 1936, gradually the Soviet troops were equipped with the M. 1936, and later, M.1940 helmets.

At least 3 of the officers of this picture from Romanian Generals are french... First the General in the center with only one arm and 2 officers in the second and last row. Note the collars are different and alsio the kepi. The one in the second row wears a black armband typical of french officers late in the war.
|Posted by: New Connaught Ranger July 13, 2007 01:02 pm|
The printed writing on the card says:
A Literal translation:
Rumanian Funeral. II.
"Before the coffin is placed in the grave and buried, the body lies on white linen, with wine and oil annointed / provided for the journey into the next world. Also into the deceased hand is placed some small money. We have observed that in the clothing of the deceased there is no knots to prevent keeping his spirit earthbound and prevent his passing onwards."
These postcards were sent by soldiers a a "tourist" style card showing the different traditions of the lands they were in. As Brothels were (as even today in Austria, Germany & France etc..etc..) legal, there would be no reason
There are many picture cards on the net showing troops visiting the official brothels which were well regulated and kept seperate there being Officers Brothels & Other Ranks Brothels.
As the postcards have been hand-tinted and are so small to define facial expressions I dont know how you can claim:
This is the funeral of a local person in the area where the Germans are based, possibly they were attending as guests or out of curiosity, they appear to be carrying no weapons so its reasonable to assume its not "Front-line", and there is no reason to presume the deceased was an enemy.
As some of the women are in the same style and colour dresses in both cards, the pictures show the same funeral.
Postcards such as these are not overtly "Propaganda" as such, but, are an interesting record of times gone by. And of immense interest to military historians.

| That photo was published on page 106 of the book "Armata Romana 1941 - 1945" by Cornel Scafes et al. The caption mentions that the photo was taken in Slovakia in March 1945. The contrast between the uniforms and the "Haiduc"-like appearance of the Romanian soldier is mentioned in the caption with the explanation that it was the result of the poor-quality materials used in manufacturing the uniforms and the very poor supplies available to the front line echelons.

|Never seen before in the romanian ww1 archive I have.|

|The first one is from http://net.lib.byu.edu/estu/wwi/dose/03-Romania-02.htm, the second one from http://www.kieselbach.hu/cgi-bin/kieselbach.cgi?MENUID=HIREK&HIRID=2023&ARCHIV=&KATID=1&SHOWPICS=T and the third one from http://stahlgewitter.com/16_10_08.htm. I am interested in the building appearing in the first 2 pics and the track in the third one. I was not successful in contacting the owners and I thought maybe someone here knows them.|

|The first pic isn't it the famous "transeea mortii" from Brasov, but taken from another angle? The legend on the bottom of it made me supose is about this place, unapropiatelly called "transee", because such never exist on that spot, romanian soldiers being machine guned near the railway.|

|Yes it is. All three are from 1916, close to that event. Old pictures from this part of Brasov are quite rare and the building I'm interested in was a tramway depot. The third picture shows the pavement model around the tramway track.|

|The second picture is taken on "Melcilor" hill in Brasov.|

no no...it's the hill in Bartolomeu area corner with Lunga street. You can see in the picture the curch on Lunga street(from there the hungarian soldiers open fire on romanian troops)

| The sepia image (2nd) is from http://www.kieselbach.hu/cgi-bin/kieselbach.cgi?MENUID=HIREK&HIRID=2022&ARCHIV=&KATID=921&&LANG=EN:
"I have discovered a photo album of the First World War in the Ecseri Flee Market, which is supposed to be prepared by László Vitályos, a military engineer who was later appointed captain. The album offers a glimpse of the campaign in Transylvania, Slovakia, Ukraine and in Montenegro.
There are more than 180 photos depicting landscapes of Brasov, Făgăraş, Predeal, Iwangorod, Kissel, Prużany, Kattaro, Castelnuovo, Tyrana and Scutari, civilians and soldiers from Hungary, Rumania, Slovakia, Russia, and Montenegro, catching snapshots of bloody battles and quiet weekdays. We can witness László Mednyánszky playing chess in his quarters in Gorodiste, King Karl of Austria on the streets of Brasov, and Archduke Friedrich in Predeal. The following compilation shows all the photos appearing in the album."
Does anybody know him or how could I contact him?

| Any chance we can identify any of the individuals, military units or weapon? Unfortunately the photo is glued on a support board, I doubt that we can recover what it says on the back, without destroying it.

|Almost all of them wear the romanian grey-blue M.1916 officer's tunic, one of them (last row, standing, 3rd from right) wears the romanian grey-blue M.1916 troops and NCO's tunic, the ones that wear the more dark uniforms wear the khaki M.1921 officer's tunic, they served with different weapons, but the ones that have the ”two crossed cannons” emblem on their ”capelă” served with the artillery troops. If the photo is yours post some close-ups maybe is there more to see ...|

| A large colection of photos, made by french war corespondents on the Romanian Front WW1 (1917). I found some 17 web pages here. Just surf with patience to the right (right arrow). Nice.
