Regimental Photos...?
« on: November 09, 2005, 08:15:13 PM »
Hi everyone--

Does anyone have any photographs of Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna in her regimental uniform? Her regiment was the 15th Cavalry Division of the Ukraine Hussars. I know there had to have been photos taken of her in uniform, and I believe I've seen one somewhere, maybe in a book or something. I just think the photos of them in their uniforms are really neat.

Please feel free to post photos of other members in their regimental uniforms. I'd also like to find some of Olga Alexandrovna, and the ones of Alix in her uniform, if anyone has them to post. Thanks!! :D

Here's Olga A. I don't think I've ever seen Xenia in uniform.

I've seen Olga, Tatiana, & Marie  and even Alexandra in Regimental photos, but never one of Anastasia. Anyone know why not?

I think this has been talked about before somewhere. Anastasia had a regiment but was too young. I'll try to find the thread for you.

Thanks!!!!
I also wonder why I've seen pics of Olga (daugther of AIII) in regimental photo but not of Xenia, when Xenia was the elder of the two  ???

I've never seen either! I skipped once more through my Russian books and found out... nothing.

Thanks so much for that charming and beautiful picture of Olga A. in uniform. I've never seen one of her in uniform, either.  ;D

Still hope for a photo of Ksenia in uniform to be uncovered--I'm sure one exists somewhere. Thank you all for your replies and contributions to my quest. :)
