Начальник Генштаба Александру Лупеску / General de divizie Alexandru Lupescu


Recommended Posts

Here's a fantastic portrait of an unknown highly decorated general dated 1923 :flag_ro:

It's really huge - as big as A3 size, and it's seems it was taken out of a frame.

Unfortunately its edges are broken but overall photo is really great! :yes:

 

Is it possible to identify General?

I knew I saw this general somewhere, and after a lot of search I found the photo I taught I saw him, the photo comes from the Newsletter Magazine of Romanian State Archives named ”Document”, 2008 nr. 2(40) page.96.

The photo was taken in 14 May 1923 at the official ceremony for the designation of the Unknown Soldier. You can see that your photo was taken same day because he wears the same uniform and awards. Unfortunately I wasn't able to identify him, I will ask on the Romanian forum.

Andrew, I just got answer on the Romanian forum, the general from your photo is: General de divizie Alexandru Lupescu, Sef al Marelui Stat Major*, 01.10.1923-21.06.1927. Here is a photo of him: http://www.mapn.ro/f...stat-major/30_G

 

*Sef al Marelui Stat Major = Chief of the Army General Staff
