If anybody can translate them, is welcome. Romanian researchers have never seen these documents, I have some more of them, but all in russian or czech.

All images are sent to me by a czech guy I know, because I reenact romanian transylvanian volunteer (actually 1st Romanian Transylvanian Volunteer Corp, 3rd Romanian Transylvanian Volunteer Regiment "Avram Iancu") as a hobby (see photo bellow).

Also for your delice, Romanian transylvian volunteers, 1st Corp, ww1, taking the oath, 1917 most probably. Notice that due to lack of raw materials, they dont have waist belts and ammo pouches. The ammo clips were put inside the material which covered their waist. Same source of photo as above.

About this subject, see
Cruciati, tirani si banditi, by Elie Bufnea, the one who had the photos and documents presented by Kevin in that album above, editura Marist, 2009.
Elie Bufnea participated in that campaign, and those are his memories.
Luptele romanilor cu bolsevicii in Siberia, by Simion Ghisa, editura Marist 2009, memories of another participant at this campaign.
More about Romanian volunteers in Siberia, Italy, French and United States, by the same Elie Bufnea:

All those names are foundation members of one association of volunteers, association made few years after the war, Casa Voluntarilor Români din Siberia (CVRS). The list don't include reserve battalion (Irkutsk) and all the volunteers, just the members who founded CVRS.

Not sure I follow your meaning,

do you mean the names listed in the recently published book :-

"CORPUL VOLUNTARILOR ROMANI DIN SIBERIA (1918-1920)"

because the list of names, along with age, occupation and location where from

to my eyes equate to the members of the Legion who served in Siberia,

particularly as it gives a rank first.

Yes, Kevin, those listed in the book are former veterans who served in Siberia and made after they returned home an association called Casa Voluntarilor Romani in Siberia, and Elie Bufnea was one of the directors. This list is made by him.
The total number of volunteers in Siberia is over 5000 men, up to 10000 men.

What I do find strange is that the men listed in the book as coming from

the locations of:- Cugir, Vinereia, & Almasu Mare

are NOT on the local War memorials erected in those locations. :blink:

I have personally checked the 3 monuments for the names.

It is normal, because those men aren't dyng in battle, they survived the war, come back home from Siberia, and do their lives. From time to time, like other veterans, they meet each other in some places to commemorate the ones who don't survived. Those meetings were organised by CVRS, a kind of War Veterans Association. The names in the book is the list of members who founded CVRS (Casa Voluntarilor Romani din Siberia).
