Booklet of sixteen photographs documenting the funerary procession and dignitaries, following the arrival and burial of the remains of General Petr Vrangel' (1878–1928), the former commander of the Russian White Army in Southern Russia. He died and was buried in Brussels, but following his wishes, his body was laid to rest at the Russian Church in Belgarde, Church of the Holy Trinity. Earlier in the 1920s, Vrangel' had lived and worked in Serbia, where he had sought to create a worldwide organization of Russian military men in exile, to prepare for a future struggle against the Bolshevik rulers.
