Locotenent-Colonel Ioan G. Trofin, General Staff Officer, 7th Vanatori Regiment. Died 28 August, 1941 in the Ukraine.

Awarded the Order of Michael the Brave 3rd Class, Post-Mortum on 7 January, 1942 by Royal Decree No. 40, Brevet 173. He was also awarded Post- Mortum by Royal Decree No. 329, Brevet 467 the Order of the Crown with swords for "Virtute Militara".

I am happy to have aquired this new addition to my collection. My third Michael the Brave uniform. This one came with lots of documents, photos, medals and matching Brevets.

Close up of left side. Note the wound stripe on the left sleeve. It is sewn on Horizon Blue material for Injuries sustained in World War One. I think possibly at Blaskovitz, 1919.

Close up of ribbon bar and Order of Michael the Brave 3rd Class, Model 1941. Now, being that it was awarded Post-Mortum, this order was never originally worn on the uniform. It came in the original issued box stamped National Mint. However, it is most appropriate place the original order and add it to the uniform for the very first time.

Close up of General Staff Academy badge, General Staff Adjutants aguilettes and collar patches. Note the insignia for General Staff Adjutant. All adjutants wore this type of bullion wire insignia. It is sewn on light blue material. The color of the material is different depending on what branch of the Army a person served in.
