The Leib-gvardii 2-oi tsarskosel’skii strelkovyi polk (2nd Life Guard Infantry Regiment) was formed in 1856. This unit participated in the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878, as well as in the First World War. The regiment was disbanded in 1918, but then reformed as part of the Volunteer Army that same year, taking part in the Russian Civil War on the side of the White forces.
These papers consist of select records of the Soiuz leib-gvardii tsarskosel’skikh strelkov, formerly known as the Leib-gvardii 2-oi tsarskosel’skii strelkovyi polk, but liquidated in 1918. These records relate to the fate of the regiment’s members in the emigration, dating from 1929 to 1938. Included among the documents are statutes, lists of members, and reports.
