JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Viewmate: Uniform identification #general
I've posted a picture on Viewmate at the following link:
Could you help me identify the uniform this young man is wearing ?
The picture belonged to my great grandparents: Fiszel and Mechalina
They were both born in Warsaw in 1877 and 1884.
The photographer who took this picture was in activity >from 1893 till 1909.
The number 3 appears on the cap the man is wearing.
My question: Is it be a soldier's uniform (military service or
Russo-Japanese war) or a policeman's uniform ?
There was a rumor in my family that my grandfather's brother (born in 1873)
was a policeman in Warsaw.
Not sure if it's true. And not sure it is him in this picture.
You can either answer me directly or on the Viewmate form.
