Romanian Independence War documents


Recommended Posts

It is quite a lot to translate, but in essence this is a collection of legal copies of documents regarding the participation of a Jewish sergeant, David Senfeld/Seinfeld from Roman, to the Independence War. Apparently, he had received the Silver Military Medal and the Defenders of the Independence Medal in 1878, the Russian Commemorative Medal in 1881 and the second class of the Faithful Service Medal in 1883. He was naturalised as a Romanian citizen in 1879.

In one document the name is spelled as "Şeinfeld" with the first letter being read /ʃ/.

Given that one of them referred to the naturalisation of David Seinfeld in 1878, I guess they were documents supporting the Romanian citizenship of one of his descendants.

    • 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 .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
