  1. OK Tasmaniensis. That sounds great. Very intriguing. Kind Regards Ian
  2. Many thanks tasmaniensis. That's some very diligent research you've done there. Most interesting of course are his dates. (1892-1941). I wonder how he died? Ian
  3. Thanks tasmaniensis. That's very useful. Much appreciated Ian
  4. That's great Lukasz. It sounds very much like he could be the Colonel Ferdinand Silvester who was the Cof S. Well done and thanks very much.. Regards Ian
  5. Hi Lukasz, Thanks for that. Do you know his first name? Looks a bit like Ferdnand or Ferdinand. Is Silvester the correct spelling of his surname and do you happen to have any further biographical info on him? Regards Ian
  6. Lukasz Thank you very much. I am most grateful for the identification. If you find any biographical info that would be fantastic. Many thanks Ian
  7. OK FRank. Well thanks very much for trying. Best Ian
  8. Hi Elmar OK thanks very much. You could be right. You're the second person to put that up as a possibility. Best wishes Ian
  9. Hi Lukasz Many thanks for the information and identifying this Polish officer. I am most grateful . I wonder what happened to him. Maybe he was one of those executed at Katyn? Which particular photos would you like to see. I have posted photos from this group in the French Section and Italian Section plus others in Sweden, Estonia, Latvia and Czechslovakia. Have you seen them Lukasz Regards Ian
  10. Hi Frank Well thanks very much for trying. I really appreciate it. The second one looks a bit like Papillon but the third one!! The third one seems to have been a Captain (in the army?) and Assistant Military Attache to Warsaw in 1934. The second one looks like a Naval officer and he may have been the Military Attache in 1934. The first one -Captain of Frigate seems to have been the French Naval Attache to Poland and/or Warsaw in 1937 so perhaps the larger countries like France had army, navy and air force military attaches. Regards Ian
  11. That's very helpful Daniel. Thank you very much. Your assistance is most appreciated. Regards Ian
  12. OK Noor. Thanks very much for the additional information. Regards Ian
  13. HI Ostuf, Many thanks. I'm sure the frirst name is Liciano but the second name is more difficult. I think he may have been one of the staff at the Italian Embassy in Warsaw because most of the photos in this collection were inscribed to the Italian Military Attache in Warsaw Mario Marazzaniwho served in that capacity from 1933 to 1937. Regards Ian
  14. Hi Frank Here are enlargements of the three signatures. Regards Ian
  15. Hi Noor, That's fantastic. Thanks for identifying Colonel Raud. Greatly appreciated. Any idea when or where he was captured by the Russians? Best Ian
  16. Thank you Kim. There is a Carl Yngve Schroder who was born in 1901 and died in 1985. It seems that this is the same man. I really appreciate your help. If anyone has any additional biographical information I would appreciate it. Thanks again. Regards Ian
  17. Hi Rick. Thank you very much. There were about 30 photos altogether and I managed to identify some myself and others through similar forums but those I have posted here are mainly ones that I cannot decipher the signatures properly or lack any biographical information. I will repost the signatures of some of them so they are easier to read. Regards Ian
  18. Can anyone please help to identify any of these three unidentified French military and assisant military attaches to Poland and/or Warsaw during the mid to late 1930s. Any help much appreciated> Many thanks
  19. I'm not an expert on uniforms but this photo might, I repeat might, be of a Swedish military attache to Warsaw in 1937. I'm hoping that some of you uniform and medal experts will be able to advise me on just whose army this unidentified officer was serving in. Many thanks
  20. Hi Chris I bought a batch at an auction last year. You're absolutely right. They are great photos aren't they? Some of them went on to become quite important people in the war. Best Ian
  21. This photograph of an unidentified Italian who seems to have been some sort of liason officer or military attache in Warsaw in the late 1930s. There is also a photo of a lady who may be his wife. Can anyone help to identify either of these people please. Many thanks.
