Can't tell much about the uniforms, I think the period is somewhere between 1935-1940. The two stripes on the sleeve means rank of ”caporal”, and the round patch on the sleeve means ”mechanic”.

The two different cap tallies: "Baza Constanta" and "...a de Submar..." could mean Nava Bază Constanța, see here: http://www.worldwar2.ro/arr/?language=en&article=354 and the other, maybe: ”Școala de Submarine” (U boat School).

On the back is written: Amintire făcută pe gheață în campania 1937, la pupa bricului Mircea/ Cap. R. Cragan(?) Galați; translation: Memory made ​​on the ice in 1937 campaign, at the Micea's boat stern; the boat is the first school ship named „Mircea” 1882 - 1944 ( see photo below), the second school ship named „Mircea” entered service in 1939 and is still in service today.

Portrait of an unknown Comandor while visiting certain German warship.

Nice photos Andrew. :good:

I believe the German is admiral Karl-Georg Schuster, commander of Marinegruppenkommandos Süd, and the Romanian is Comandor Nicolae Bardescu (identified from the photo below). :smile:

Thank you for the identification and welcome to our board! :drinks: 

As for the Romanian officer, do you agree with the opinion posted above?

In the photo - definitely not Karl Georg Schuster.
