Photo dated 15 April 1945. On the back of the photo it is written: "O amintire... Dar numai o amintire?" (A memory... But only a memory?)

Amazing pictures, I'm so glad you put them here. I like the guy who is missing in Combat at Stalingrad. :cry:
Don't sell these pictures to anybody.

I have similar pictures of my grandfather and his unit, - if the house burns down, this collection I would jump to save.
Those who sell such familly treasures on Ebay are traitors.

Keep the 'memory' alive'

These family momentos are priceless, keep them safe for other generations. My great-grandfather was the Colonel of the 14th Virginia Volunteer Infantry, Confederate States of America during our Civil War and I have his sword. There is no amount of money that could buy it from me. My son will receive it when I die! Garry Owen!!

My grandfather, Badescu Aurel, here probably after the graduation of the Artillery Officer School in Timisoara in 1932.

I try to re-post your images, because they cannot be seen in your original post.(IMG:http://romanianmedals.go.ro//poza1.JPG)

P.S. Well, it didn't work for me, either. Something must be wrong with the image host.

Florin, No, he was wounded at Gettysburg, on the third day during "Picketts charge". He returned to duty in 1864, but still had problems , so he was discharged for disability. It is interesting , that while he was an infantry officer, he was trained as a physician before the war. and was a physician after the war. Two other great grand fathers did go on until Appomattox. One , also in "Pickett's Charge" was one of only 73 men left out of 1,800 to be able to surrender at Appomattox.The other an Artillery Sgt also survived to surrender at Appomattox. Garry Owen!
