Hi Ilieff,

 

I agree with you  You can see the Grand Cross Star of the Order of St Alexander

Possible, it could also be Grand Cross of Austrian St. Joseph order.

You are correct, especially considering that the photo was taken [roughly] in the years of WW1. However, I'd consider this a less likely scenario. I did compare the widths of the Alexander star and the sash, and the ratio suggests it's a 1st class star (not a 2nd class, as some might have suggested).

Can anyone identify this (presumably Finnish) man? Thanks.

I think I may have found the answer: Eduard Hjalmar Palin, Finnish envoy to Romania between 1941 and 1945
