Alexei in brace
The quality is crummy, but that's how it is in the book... :-/

There's a colorized photo of Maria in her uniform at the top of this thread:
Olga's Regimental Picture

I know I've seen at least 2 other photos on the boards of Maria in her uniform (on horseback, I think), but I don't believe either of them showed her with her regiment.

Isn't the dancing one from a video? Or am I thinking of a different occasion?

There's definitely film footage of the IF dancing on a yacht (though it may have been the Polar Star), in 1912, I think. If it's the clip where the officers & IF are dancing in a circle, and OTMA are wearing white dresses with wide-brimmed hats decorated with flowers, you can find it on the Last of the Czars video that the Discovery Channel did.  When I get home, I'll check and see if it's one of the film clips I've downloaded onto my laptop.
