Very true. Grand Duke Dmitri was also a decorated for his bravery on the battlefield in WWI. There were Romanovs who did take their military service seriously and performed their tasks admirably.

Dimitri was indeed decorated, but he was only in the front line very briefly - during the East Prussian campaign.

Kyrill:

"After graduating from the Sea Cadet Corps and Nikolaev Naval Academy, on January 1, 1904, Cyril was promoted to Chief of Staff to the Russian Pacific Fleet in the Imperial Russian Navy. With the start of the Russo-Japanese War, he was assigned to serve as First Officer on the battleship Petropavlovsk, but the ship was blown up by a Japanese mine at Port Arthur in April 1904. Cyril barely escaped with his life, and was invalided out of the service suffering from burns, back injuries and shell shock."

"From 1909-1912, he served on the cruiser Oleg and was its captain in 1912. In 1913, he joined the Maritime Division of the Imperial Guards and was made Commander of the Naval Guards in 1915."

What division he served in the War ? Don't think he served with his two brothers.

Thanks. I do wonder if he told his family before he went over to the rebels. What did his family felt about him breaking his oath to the Tsar ?

You can ask your question in the topic about Kyrill and his family.

This link is about his family meaning his parents and brothers and sister. The other one is his own family. So I think is the right link.
