Hi,

Here's a very nice portrait of Aleksandrs Plensners as a Colonel in the Latvian Army.

Hi,

This is the only one I've seen of Plensners in the uniform of a Staf.

Hi Phil

I have this pic too but some have doubts about the identity of the Staf on the right. I know the book said PLENSNERS but some are thinking (and me) as Arvīds KRĪPENS. The hairs are totlly differents for example.

Regards

Phil D.

In the last photo it appears that one officer is wearing the national armshield on his right sleeve, and the other on his left sleeve, so that both armshields are facing the photographer. Very odd. 8O

Hi,

Phil D. is absolutely correct - the pic shows Staf. Arvīds KRĪPENS with Staf. Janums.

Best regards,
