Yes. Any chance he could be Malama?
I believe the soldier with the wounded leg could be Malama. His eyes and browline look strikingly similar to Malama's. Hard to tell for sure, though, since he's holding his head in a slightly unnatural position.  :-\

At livadia.org you can find three photographs featuring a "Mitya".

In my opinion he does not look like the person in the previously posted pictures, but it might just be the light and angle.

I'm kind of late here. But the officer on those photos- isn't he Dimitri Pavlovich?

In memory of Grand Duke Dimitri! The man had style.

Yes, that's exactly right, as Helene said about a month ago.  ;)

  This note may be quite old news by now, but quite convincing evidence has appeared on the Forum that Olga N.'s Dimitry (Mitia) was a different man than Tatiana's Dmitry Malama. Check out "Olga Nicholaievna and Mitia" on the Olga board to see that her Mitia was probably Dmitry Shahk-Bagov, also a wounded officer at the lazaretz.Much credit goes to those resourceful posters who have done some fine research about Mitia".

I am watching a documentry Nicolas and Alexandra and they say the last name of Dmitri is NOT Malama but Malamar with an R at the end.  Which is correct? ???

His name is consistently spelled in Royal Sisters of Mercy as "Malama." I'm inclined to believe that's correct, as the bulk of the text was taken directly from the grand duchesses' diaries and letters.

You are correct.

Another point about names - Russia uses the Cyrillic alphabet so all names rendered in English are translated to the best approximation of the Russian name in English. For example, the English "Nicholas" is actually "Nikolai" in Russian, "Michael" is actually "Mikhail", etc.

The point is - I would not be concerned about differing letters in the same name in such circumstances.

GD Olga wanted to all non Russian names to be pronouncated in Russian, OTMA had discussion about it (or invertedly, not sure). -- from Count V.N. Voeikov memories.

I think you have to buy them as a printed book. As far as I know, they're only available in Russian. More info here.
