Why such a title? Just because the man who has sent this photograph was named “Peppino (which stands for “Giuseppe”). I think he must be the man on the right. When I bought this picture, I thouht the guy on the left was a civilian (probably a member of his family), but I’ve realized he wears an uniform (and a very strange cap, however).

Here’s a picture of him with the Czar taken in Saint Petersburg.
