Greetings to everyone! I'm looking for info about Romanian army interwar OOB.
I couldn't find much information about this on the net.

According to Soviet guidebook "Foreign armies" (1934) total strength of Romanian army by 1933 year was 262 320 man. There were 7 army corpses and 1 mountain corps of 2 mountain divisions, 1 Guards division, 4 cavalry divisions. Each army corps consisted of HQ, heavy artillery regiment, engineer regiment and 3 infantry divisions.
Land forces included 75 infantry regiments (233 battalions), 29 cavalry regiments (22 of them are roșiori), 4 light infantry battalions, 44 light artillery regiments, 7 heavy artillery regiments, 2 AA regiments, 4 armored regiments and 29 engineer battalions. Total strength is about 210 000.
Border guard consisted of 4 brigades of 2 regiments. There were also 11 regiments and 8 battalions of the gendarmerie, totally 42025 man.

But there is not information about division OOB, commanders, garrisontowns etc.

I will be very grateful for help.
