Does anyone recognize the sash being worn by the third man ? Looks like the WW1 cross ribbon with colors green and black. I have not seen this sash before.

The national tri-color - IMO these are the colors on the sash.

If you enlarge the photo, it appears that the sash is only 2 colors and not 3 and has an outer thin boarder just like a medal ribbon. I have seen the tri-colored sash and it does not have an outer border.

IMHO, there are three colours on the sash, something like 1-2-3-2-1, with the thin stripes on the edge again colour 2. Whatever that means... :ph34r:

I like this photo because I have a black male Great Dane with gray on his nose identical to the one in this photo. My Dane is slightly larger than one pictured at 85kg. When standing, He can put his paws on my shoulders. His name is "Rockford".

They don't smoke (I see no smoke)! They just put the pipe and cigarette in their mouths to dramatise the picture... :P

Students at the Engineer Officer School at Cotroceni, Bucharest, early 1943, taking advantage of the snow. Who knows how many of them actually made it to the end of the war (they most likely graduated that year). The guy to the far right, in the background, looks a little like Robert de Niro :)

That's a very humane and eco-friendly way to decimate your enemy. :D

:D :D :D

In ww1 from the romanian side this might have been a good idea, as they were not very well equiped. Do you know the device romanian troopers improvised to sound like a machinegun fire? :D It was a wooden box whith some mecanism inside and when enemy atacked, romanians started to work on this device, trying to fool the enemy that they pouring machinegun fire :D

Also, in one case, I readed some many years ago about a romanian pilot who spoted a enemy cannon batery, went back to his lines and asked for bombs or grenades to destroy the enemy batery. He got the answer that there are no bombs or grenades available, so he filled his airplane with so many bricks as he could. He then droped this bricks on enemy artilerymen, who, at least for the moment, took shelter. :ph34r:
