Could someone please help me identify some of the ranks and/or names of the officers in the picture? Thanks in advance.

I don't believe anyone can identify the ranks, or even the faces, form a photo measuring 640px × 452px, its just too little, no details can bee seen. I believe you must post a 600 dpi or 1200 dpi scan, I posted below an 1200 dpi scan, measuring 4.418px × 6.774px, just as an example. Regards!

Thanks for your advice, but I am a little cautious about posting high-resolution photos from my family album since I have seen many images belonging to other users appear on various facebook pages and web sites, with their watermarks cropped off.


Best regards. See larger (500kb) image below, and thanks to everyone for their help. If you save to your desktop and zoom in, faces and ranks are clearly visible.

Yes, I understand that, but if you put a solid watermark in the middle (like you did), the photo can't be cropped any more, optionally you can use three lines of watermark: top, middle, bottom.

Photo is taken after 1934 because their caps are M1934, I believe first form left wears an M1939 cap (bigger calotte and smaller band), judging by the cap visor, they are all with the rank of ”Maior” to ”Colonel” for infantry or ”Locotenent-comandor” to ”Comandor” for air-force. Form left: no. 1, 3 and 5 has an infantry cap emblem, from left no. 2, 4 and 6 has an air-force cap emblem. That's about it! :)

@Agarici: I believe the aircraft its a Potez 25, if I'm not mistaking it was also built under license by IAR Brașov.

I’ll try a better photo.
Until then, I can say the first on the left, on the upper step, is Adj. Stanescu. The fourth, from right to left, is Lt. Nicolae Ticulescu (with a colleague's arm on his left shoulder) and the next to the left, with the face slightly covered, is Lt. Dimitriu. They were part of the Fighting Squadron 2, Pipera Flotilla.

That's all I did, I hope to help :)
Unfortunately, the picture has small format 8/6 cm.
