Here you have an M1916 officer's blue-grey uniform, medal appears to be ”Crucea comemorativă a Războiului 1916-1918” instituted in 1918, July 8th. Although the khaki uniform was introduced to some units in 1921 and in 1923 to others, the blue-grey colour was tolerated until 1927, thus this photo could be taken somewhere between end of 1918 and 1927. Personally I would date it somewhere between 1919 and 1923.

When requesting an identification of a uniform and medal, you should post a high resolution scan, preferably at 1200 dpi. I don't know how you people expect one to see all the details form a small low resolution 72 dpi scan, measuring 800 x 503 pixels. <_<

PS. here is an 1200 dpi scan, measuring 6774 x 4418 pixels, see the difference. --- Click on the photo (photo will open in new window), click again on the photo, click View all sizes: Original (6774 x 4418).

I forgot to add that he seems to be an „sublocotenent”, his black pants suggests he served with the artillery or cavalry troops, I would bet on the latter. Regards!

Thanks VERY Much.
You're absolutely right on the photo date.
Here's what's on the back of the card:
"15 IV 1922.
Cu toate dragostea
De La Sylvica si Costel
Bucuresti"

This is a photo from the family archive of Grigory Andronikovich Mamulat, Electrotechnics Professor, Food Industry Institute of Technology, Tiraspol, MSSR.
The two individuals are his Romaina relatives on his aunt's side. He is originally from satul Coşniţa, Moldova. His multiple relatives still reside there, in fact.

Sorry, the low-res scans is all I got at the moment. Will try to re-scan ASAP.

Other Mamulat family Romaina military photos coming up.

Special thanks to Ronnie for creating this theme for me. Thanks Ronnie, much appreciated.

Kind Regs,

Ilse

Kind Regs,

You welcome Ilse!
For high resolution scans I would recommend to host hour photos on http://www.flickr.com, its free and you get 1 terabyte (1000 GB) space, this is enough space to upload thousands upon thousands of high resolution photos.

At a first look, yes, it seems austro-hungarian, but the epaulettes tell another story, this is a Romanian police M1903 uniform, they were called „sergenți de oraș” (in 1930 they were transformed in „Corpul Gardienilor Publici”, unfortunately I cant tell you his rank because I don't find that information right now (I believe I have it somewhere).

The one in the dark uniform, second from right, wears a Romanian M1895 artillery uniform, if you post a high quality photo I can tell you his rank. The other tree are German officers, I believe the Romanian officer is following a artillery specialization course in Germany. I would date this photo somewhere between 1900/05 and 1912.

Hi and Thanks a lot. Is there any chance you could give me his rank--if it's not too time-consuming for you, that is...
Best Regards

Ilse

PS. Just in case you're curious: here's what I have on the back of the card:

Fotografia
M. Losacov
Str Torgovaia 154
Orhei

And to the right of the Romanian-language inscription there's the same inscription only in Russian:

Фотография
М Лошакова
Торговая 154

Let me get you the scan of the reverse side. There's a text in Romanian there.
And you're right again: the photo is dated 29 VIII 1906 and was sent by the Romanian officer from Calau, Germany.

Best Regs and Thanks,

Ilse

I asked Mr. Emil Boboescu from „Asociația Tradiția Militară” about the rank and he was so kind to solve the matter: here we have a polițai clasa III-a or clasa II-a, the ”polițai” was a police chief from the smaller towns who did not have a police chief with the rank of ”prefect”.

If the photo is taken in the town of Orhei, than the photo is taken after 1918, because this territory joined the motherland after this date. I would appreciate that this photo was taken between 1919 and 1928, maybe in the first half, 1919 to 1923/24.

For posting photos I would recommend http://www.flickr.com or http://postimg.org/, both are free and you can post high quality photos.
