Chronicle of 1915
In times of "great European war"
In memory of sad separation in this bright and warm May we decided to take a picture of ourselves;
before long this short-term friendship died away.
Ivan Vasilievich Roshko, Peter Timofeevich Vishievsky and M.M.Golovetz

Thank you for the translation. Too bad you could not read the town or the addresses. M. M. Glovetz lived in Romania after the 1918 union of Bessarabia and Bukovina with the country and used the name Mihail Glavatzchi. It would have been interesting to see whether he was a native of Bessarabia or of another place.

Name of the location in post #3 reads

Хот. г.

I think it stands for Khotinskiy county (Хотинский уезд)

Khotinskiy county was in Bessarabia province (Бессарабская губерния)

Some small place Efshtsy (Ефшцы) in Khotinskiy county.

Thanks. I know where Khotyn is. In Romanian is known as Hotin and it has an old fortress of the Principality of Moldavia.

Two more photos surfaced from the Bessarabian branch of the family. I would appreciate if you can help with a translation of the written legend on the back of one of them.

P.S. I am a rather disconcerted by how quickly the time passes. I thought I posted the previous pictures only a couple of years ago, only to discover that almost 5 years have passed.

Thanks a lot Egorka! It seems that Mihail Glavatzchi's sister, Liza, worked as a nurse in the Ryshkovka (army?) hospital during the war.
