Description

Scope and content

Orders, financial records, subject files, lists and service records of the Russian Expeditionary Forces. The collection pertains almost entirely to World War I, and there are limited materials on the Civil War in Russia and the emigration in Europe. The bulk of the collection consists of service records (posluzhnye spiski) and lists of soldiers from the 1st and 2nd Special Infantry (Osobye Pekhotnye) divisions. There are reports, plans, orders and financial records concerning these units in 1916-1919, chiefly in France. Files in the Civil War largely concern the northwestern front. Other files concern courts of honor (sud chesti) both in World War I and in the 1920s. Also in the collection is a book, I︠U︡.N. Danilov"Russkie Otri︠a︡dy na Frant︠s︡uzskom i Makedonskom Frontakh, 1916-18 g.".
