romanian navel officer? Rank? Identification?

Post by Melax » 18 Jun 2022 11:38

Hi,

I THINK the naval officer on the left is in romanian uniform - is that correct?

does anybody know his rank? Or maybe even can identify him?

The german naval officer on the right should be Konteradmiral Wurmbach, so the picture should take place at the Black Sea Coast, most likly summer 1942.

Any help would be great :)

thanks a lot,
alexander

OK, seems that the romanian officer is a "Comandor" - if the same insignias were used as today...

any idea who he might be?

Hi,

He looks to me like comandor Alexandru Stoianovici.

Hi ArisGr,

yes it seems you are right!! :)

great, thanks a lot :)

sadly the romanian Wiki has only infos from 1943 and later -.-

the picture should be from 1942 - does anybody know his function in summer 1942?

thanks again,

Alexander

EDIT: ok, found some additional infos: https://www.dhmfn.ro/ro/comandanti.shtml
