Thanks, Mircea! That would be great of you succeed to get answer with an identification of the third badge)

 

Here's another portrait. I assume here we have a Caporal who visited a photo atelier somewhere at Galaţi. But what about his specialization judging from the sleeve patch? And what is the full title of his cap tally?

Taranu Dumitru. November 25, 1944. Portrait from a photo lot of that Navy officer.

 

Andrew, can you please post the reverse with the date, I ask you this because I just received information from Mr. Mirel Eugen from Asociația Tradiția Militară, and he said that based on the epaulettes weapon insignia both photos are taken after 1948, possibly after 1952 (depending on the tunic colour, black in 1948, little bit lighter shade after 1952.

Thanks, Mircea!

 

Andrew, please disregard my previous message in post #14, Mr. Mirel Eugen from Asociația Tradiția Militară just sent me new information (after studying more documents and after talking with another specialist), turns out the photo could be from the Royal period, so the date of November 25, 1944 is CORRECT. :smile:

Yes, the tunic was worn in 1944, the color should be dark blue. The ”problem” was with the rank and weapon insignia, so it turns out that my source was a bit outdated (book from 1996), Mr. Mirel Eugen from Asociația Tradiția Militară said that he found new documents that prove the use of this types also in the Royal period. :smile:

Солдат и моряк. Судя по монограмме на фуражке моряка - время правления короля Фердинанда? Звание у моряка - сержант? Что можно сказать о его военной специальности? Кажется, на рукаве винтовки перекрещенные. Что это?

 

Soldier and sailor. Based on monogram on the sailor's cap - the reign of King Ferdinand? The rank of a sailor - sergeant? What can be said about his military specialty? It seems, on the sleeve crossed rifles. What is this?

The photo is taken in the first half of the 1920s, on the left we have a ”plutonier major” of infantry, the uniform is the old blue grey M1916, the sword is the M1893.

On the right I believe its a royal navy „maestru principal” (chief warrant officer), the crossed rifles stand for marine infantry.
