I recently visited the WW2 war cemeteries just outside Sinaia in Romania. I noticed that some of the Russian soldiers were recorded on their headstones as having died in 1947. What could be the reason for this?

Just a guess... Thay stationed in Romania as a occupation force until 1958 (thay were virtually an occupation force!) so maybe they die during their military duty here, probably from injuries received in WW2?

The Red Army remained in Romania until 1958, I don't think they transported corpses to Russia, they just buried them here.

Also in the Red Army area of the Constantsa Central Cemetery, all those military people have died over 1945, peacetime.

Thanks guys. My knowledge of Romanian history is pretty thin. As I am now visiting regularly I hope to improve it. It certainly is a beautiful and interesting country.

Most of the personnel buried at Sinaia, Galati , Constanza were not all
WWII casualties in Rumania, some were even brought from Hungaria while the
fights were still ragging overthere...and rest were killed during the
many accidents and incidents of the post war Soviets in Rumania .
Inbetween them many airmen and ground stuff killed on air and ground
accidents, disputes with local population and own forces, alchool related
accidents and even suicides related to a wide variety of reasons.

If you underestand Russian, OBD Memorillia has all the details of most
the Soviets buried in Rumania. Till 1946 Sinaia served as intermediate
grave for Allied airmen in addition to Ploesti, Campina and Bucharest
