Кто изображен на фото? / Please help to identify photo


Recommended Posts

Подписей нет, но есть маркировка фотобумаги, очень интересная, в виде аббревиатуры. Не считая этого фото, такую маркировку встречал только однажды, на снимке также были солдаты в похожей неизвестной униформе.

Вечером отпишу в теме, какая именно аббревиатура.

Whom do we have here?

This CDV from late XIX century was discussed before and it was assumed that this officer is a Capitan de rangul III of the Romanian Navy. But please note decorative buttons on his boots worn by cavalry personnel. Maybe he is a cavalry officer then?

Well, that's the problem, the epaulettes are strange, like I have never seen. I think he wears a M1876 Artillery Sword and the chevrons on his sleeve can suggest he is an „furier” (administrative duties) but I cant tell more on the subject right now.

Andrew, can you scan the photo at 1200 dpi and post the detail photos on the epaulettes, medals, uniform collar and buttons, sword and boots?, because I want to ask on the Romanian forum.

I asked on the Romanian forum and the answer is that judging by the epaulettes and the chevrons on the sleeves he can't be a Romanian officer, also the buttons on his tunic don't resemble a Romanian artillery tunic. All this elements together suggest a Russian, Bulgarian or Serbian cavalry officer, but most likely Serbian. If I will receive new info I will post it. :d_book:

I am surprised too!, and because you didn't recognize it as a Russian officer, I also thought he is Romanian. I guess many Russian officers and soldiers made photos in Bucharest as souvenirs because Russia and Romania were allies at the time (1877-1878). :good:

This is the source of the photo: http://www.geh.org/ar/strip03/htmlsrc/m197501120541_ful.html and here is the same person in civilian clothes: http://www.geh.org/ar/strip08/htmlsrc/m197501110564_ful.html which is described as ”Roumanie Prince Ghika” and ”prime minister / Ghyka, Prince” problem is there was no prime minister Ghica between 1890 and 1920 and I wasn't been able to find a Prince Ghica that looks like him.

 

Now about the uniform, the epaulettes and the tunic without buttons don't look Romanian, his collar and his cuff ranks look Romanian and the cuff embodying is for ”General de Divizie”. I have no idea, maybe a diplomat uniform or an irregular uniform? ... :scratch_one-s_head:

Indeed! Maybe he created this uniform... who knows why... Thank you, Mircea!

Andrew, sorry for the delay, I just saw this post. I think its an school uniform, but just to be sure I will ask on the Romanian forum. I believe its from the 1927-30 period of the little King Michael reign, maybe someone knows what DAH means!

Mr. Kepi (the specialist from the Military Museum), said the uniform is a bit strange, it could be an civilian school one but it also be an public guardian uniform because of the elements like the King Mihai monogram on the cap and the stars on the collar tabs, the letters ”DAH” are unknown but the public guardians were organised in „detașamente” (detachments) and the letter ”D” could be derived from this.

 

Someone else suggested the uniform and the DAH letters could have something to do with the German ethnics because the town of Mediaș was heavily populated by germans at that time, it is highly unlikely this is the case because on the back of the photo is written in Romanian.

 

At this moment the uniform can't be identified with certainty! :scratch_one-s_head:
