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.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
