 Re Reply # 29:    No.  A ranking, aristocratic officer of the Belgian armed forces, if I remember correctly.  You will note that the Baron and the Heir have swapped caps for the camera.  It is a well-known photo.   AP

No. Actually it is the Belgian General Baron de Ryckl.

Yes. Alexei called him 'Papa de Ryckel'. It's interesting that Alexei referred to the many officers/counts by their nicknames given by himself.

I read somewhere that they threw bread pellets at each other at Mogeliv, or was that someone else?
