Re: Numbering generals

HI T.J.,

In the Russian army, there were often several officers with same last names serving in the army and the numbers were used to differentiate them. For example, there were twelve Ilovaiskys, eighteen Grekovs, four Tuchkovs and etc. Numbers were assigned by rank seniority.
