| As I have several such photos, which don't really have a place on the website, I thought that a topic to display them would not be a bad idea.
Here is a photo taken in 1928 in Cernauti at the ceremony of taking the military oath. Mountain troops and infantry units are visible.

|Victor, my book with general Mocanu is almost ready. He was in Military Secondary School in Cernauti. Do you have pictures with Liceul Militar ,,Stefan cel Mare'' or with its leader, colonel Eugen Dragulanescu?|

|No, but if you can use this photo I can provide you with a publishable scan.|

Just an advice: post smaller photos. This way they cannot be "poached". Or mark them somehow.

|Thank you Victor! I will try to post smaller pictures.|

|What's in the pot?|

|I don't really now! This is one of the mystery of 1929 manoeuvre ! I hope is boiled wine ! Apropos: before entering in a battle the soldiers received a some forme of encouragement ? Like "o suta de tuica"... just for my curiosity...|

| A photo, from my collection, showing a military parade, dated June 1936.

Is it possible that the much decorated high ranking oficer taking the salute is actually Ion Antonescu? To my eyes there is a seems to be a similarity.
I believe that in 1936 Antonescu was commanding the 3rd Infantry Division in Pitesti.

| Cannot be Antonescu IMO - too chubby faced. Antonescu was indeed a short man, but he was very skinny.

That is a mountain troops unit the officer is saluting. In fact one can notice the "VM" [vanatori de munte] badge just above the waist on the right (his right)

Thanks for the clarification Alexei
Thanks also to the eagle eyed Victor for spotting the VM badge.

| Another photo from my collection.
This one is inscribed on the reverse "25 October 1923, memories of Cetatea Alba".
A Naval officer flanked by two Infantry (Vanatori?) officers. The officer on the right wears the Semnul Distinctiv Pentru Schiori, also known as the Insignia de bun schior.

| Here is a lt. of vanatori wearing the Crown of Romania Order in the 1920s. Probably one the Guard regiments.

One of the soldiers is my grandfather.

The second from left is Mihai Gheorghiu, Lieutenant Colonel after a while
Ceremony at Sinaia Monastery, in the thirties.
Can you recognize someone?
