I am interested to know more about Dan Zaharia. In WW1 he worked together with Major Ion Antonescu in the Bureau of Operations. Nominally he was attached to the Black Sea Division. He retired immediately after WW1. He collected all Antonescu's speeches and put them in a book during WW2. That's all I know on him. Biography and pictures will be very useful.
Thank you.

In 1915, cpt. eng. Dan Zaharia worked for the Romanian High General HQ as a specialist tapping spies , as per this link.

In luna ianuarie 1915, īn cadrul unei consfatuiri la care au luat parte secretarul general al Ministerului de Interne, Dumitriu, directorul Sigurantei, Panaitescu, specialistul Marelui Cartier General, capitan inginer D. Zaharia, si C. Minescu s-a pus problema unei descinderi pentru a-l prinde īn flagrant pe Kunitz. .....

Convocare peste doi ani

In timpul demontarii aparaturii, s-a constatat ca pe circuitele telefonice se auzeau grupele de cifre si de litere transmise de radiotelegrafist. Supravegherea liniilor telefonice īn perioada 17-21 februarie 1915 a aratat ca radiotelegrafistul lucra fara a fi legat la antena, pentru ca se stia urmarit. Il trada telefonul pe care īl avea īn camera: postul sau de emisie producea fenomenul de inductie asupra bobinei postului telefonic, semnalele transmitāndu-se pe linie. A fost convocata o noua sedinta, la care au participat C. Minescu, D. Zaharia, colonelul Sterea, mare pretor pe lānga Marele Cartier General, Pompiliu C. Ionescu din serviciul goniometric de la Misiunea franceza ....


The author or the editor make a gross mistake: title says summoning after 2 years and paragraphs mentions 17-21 february 1915, instead of 1917 as the French Military Mission came to Romania not in 1915 !
Very interesting, the French mission included specialists in goniometry !

I hope that someone finds somewhere official records of Zaharia's career. Maybe someone more or less familiarized with organigram of "Marele Cartier General". Thanks.
