Romanian army WW1

(1/2) > >>


I'm a romanian reenactor belonging to the 3rd transylvanian volunteers Regiment "Avram Iancu" who joined romanian army in 1917.

Romania entered WW1 in 1916 on Allied side, the purpose being to liberate Transylvania from AH monarchy. Romanians from Transylvania, being AH subjects, were drafted in AH army, but they fought for a foreign cause. Their dream was for centuries to unite with Romania. So, being on russian front, romanians from AH army deserted or gave themselves prisoniers to the russians with ease. Ariving to russian POW camps, they ofered themselves volunteers and joined Romanian army beging with year 1917.

Last transylvanian volunteers came home from Siberia where they fought against bolshevics in 1921 on a route including Singapore-Calcutta-Port Said-Constantinopol-Constanţa.

Here is my uniform as sergeant of transylvanian volunteers:

Nice photos.  WWI Bulgarians and'd never see that on this side of the Pond.


Hello 21inf, glad you made it to the forum. The guys in Romania are doing will in getting the hobby going. I congradulate them on doing such a fine job over there. The gentleman who made their uniforms is also very reliable so there are sources for getting the impression together. For WWI here in the US would only have the Germans and Austrian-Hungarians to go against anyone who does Romanian. Post the pics in the photo gallery also so more people can see them.
