The upper photo shows Pod'yesaul [captain in Cossack troops] Baron Mikhail Leonardovich Ungern von Shternberg, of His Majesty's Own Convoy. By 1917, he was promoted to Colonel and appointed the Convoy commander's deputy for logistics.

Bonjour Frimousse!

The second officer isn’t General ADC Dedulin (Palace Commandant 1906-1913) but General ADC Baron Vladimir Borisovich Fredericksz, Minister of the Imperial Court (1898-1917). He served in The Horse Guards (Garde à cheval) and is wearing their uniform on this photo, along with the order of St. Andrew (light blue sash), which very few general officers received.

A photo of General Dedulin can be found in General Spiridovich’s memoirs “Les dernières années de la Cour de Tzarskoié-Sélo” (part. 2).

More about your other interesting photos later.

This gentleman is a civil servant. His rank is nadvornyi sovetnik (7th class, roughly equivalent to lieutenant-colonel). The emblem isn't visible enough to say to which ministry he belongs.

Are we sure that this lady is his wife? Could you please tell me the source of this infomation? As far as knew, this man was not married, but I believe the woman could be his sister.
