    Default Hoping for more info on this uniform - Russian (?) 1891

    I hope I'm in the right thread for this - I've been trying to research these family photos and keep getting stuck. I think it's the same person a few years older and with a higher ranking uniform? I've been told it's likely Russian due to the double headed eagle emblem and cockade. The word at the bottom of the one photo is apparently the name of a city in Warsaw and I don't know what the 12 refers to... unless it could mean December 1891?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!! (the actual photos are about 1 x 1 and I had to photo them, no scanner)

    Although not my main field of study, I agree that these are photos of the same man in Imperial Russian uniform...and quite possibly taken in said suburb of Warsaw as this was part of the Russian Empire...Basically I'm confirming your assessment with my limited knowledge, lol...
    thanks for showing,
    cheers, Glenn

    The guy in those photos is definitely in RIA private soldier uniform, no difference in ranks.

    Private, infantry. 'Ribbon of merit' (associated with his unit) at the top of the cap badge.

    Both pictures are post 1907 as per the uniform pattern. Therefore ..891 is not a year.

    ''Chlodna 12'' is a street name/block number in either Warsaw (most probably) or any other city in Poland.
