| These photos were posted on the site some time ago. Since then I was wondering what type are the mororcycles, and if they saw a wider use in the Romanian army. Were they in use with the motor recon group (squads) of the army divisions?

| Thank you very much for your answer, IonIonescu! So, the machines are BMW R 12. You know more about uniforms then me, but aren't the soldiers rather members of the border-guards regiments, which then formed the 2nd Guards Division?
The MG's seems to be ZB 30, I'm not aware of other LMG model in use by that time. Other oppinions?

| The border guards had helmets wit a crest and the gendarmes helmets had spikes, this look like gendarmes.
Difficult to identify the LMGs, I need a better photo for that.
