I just checked. The back of the photo has a note written in the old Turkish script. This was translated (by Demir I believe) as " when I was on board Yavuz" (other name for the Goeben.

Merhaba Demir

Here it is.

"13/12/33 (1333 -1917) Yavuz üzerinde bulundugum esnada"

13.12.1917 while I am on board Yavuz

This officer and the chubby officer on top with his wife (A lieutenant colonel - his uniform is from 1933-47 period - He also has the Medal of Independence. He wears the War Medal on his left breast instead of right) are Turkish. If you can say what is on his collar I may be able to say his class. It looks like medical doctor.
