Two uniform identifications req'd

Two uniform identifications req'd

I am in possession of the photographs belonging to a widower who my grandmother married late in life. He passed away three years later leaving no children and so the identities and stories behind those in the attached photos are unanswered.

I would like to know what nationality, rank, dating, etc. can be attributed to these photos based on the military garb. I have provided enlarged detail pics to assist in these id's.

The only clues I can offer is that this gentleman was born in 1893 in Bukovina, Roumania, and his first wife in Austria. The photos may also be of her relatives.

Thanks in advance for any assistance received.

The first two pictures look Austro-Hungarian judging from the hat shape. The last two photos, the zig zag pattern on the collar of his uniform looks to be a polish pattern.
