    Default Grandfather's uniform

    This is my grandfather. I scanned this photo and used Photoshop to clear it up and zoom in on the badges he is wearing. I searched sites that sold these badges to collectors to learn what I could. Can someone confirm or add any information - for example, the shoulder boards have no info? I find it curious he is not wearing his cap. The photo, I believe was taken in 1916 or 1917.
    Belt buckle: Russian Imperial Guard
    Badge on the pocket: Izmaylovsky Regiment
    Badge on his collar: graduate of the Imperial State University in St. Petersburg? We know he graduated with a degree in railroad engineering. Are there lists of graduates anywhere that could confirm this?



    Thank you in advance.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
