Гражданские лица с наградами / Civilians with decorations

Recommended Posts

CDV writing in the corner is difficult to read but I give it a try: ?Fotografului Mar???.../ Cujbă Alexandru/ Comand.(antul) Pieței/ P. Capitan ... (followed by his signature in purple ink) translation: For the photographer Mar???.../ Cujbă Alexandru/ Market Commander/ P. Captain ... (followed by his signature in purple ink); not sure what to think bout this text besides his name was Cujbă Alexandru!


Medal is not military, maybe civilian, maybe is only something that looks like a medal, cant see what's on it. :scratch_one-s_head:

Nice photo Andrew, I've seen the photo described as a photo of a former Romanian K.u.K. soldier taken prisoner on the Italian front and then volunteer in the Romanian Legion in Italy. I believe its a rare photo. Congrats!


On the back: Nicolăescu Ionești. Domnului Florea Ionescu Golești?. Nicolae ...?

Translation: Nicolăescu Ionești (the mai in the foto). for Mr. Florea Ionescu Golești?. Nicolae ...?.

Many thanks, Mircea! Could you please provide any additional details on this badge?


Mr. Mirel Eugen, from traditia-militara.ro, just informed me that he found at the archives the correct name of the organisation that issued the ”U.O.R.” badge: ”UNIUNEA OFIȚERILOR de REZERVĂ și în retragere” (Reserve and retired Officers Union). No further info about the year it was introduced, sorry!
