The Tsar's army didn't exist after the Bolshevik Revolution (Nov
1917). After that, the army that fought the Red Army (organized in
1918) was called the White Army (1918-1923) in contrast to the Red.
There were relatively few Jews who fought in the White Army because it
was known for its vicious pogroms whereas the Red Army was not. Can't
imagine many army records would exist >from that time period but those
that do would more probably be >from the pre-Revolution portion of the
WWI.
