Is that an Iron Cross on his left side? How would a Russian soldier have an Iron Cross?
My grandfather knew how to play a horn. Is it possible he was a bugler for his company having the musician patches on his shoulders?
Was there any wars going on during Imperial Russia?
Would someone in the Imperial Army have ended up in the Russian Army for WW1 or maybe gone to the German Army?
