Photos of the Ottomans and Allies decorated with the TWM


Recommended Posts

Selam Demir!

Of course, you can! But please do me one favour. Don´t mention my name, because I don´t want to have my name in common with facebook. I hate each social network...

You know my photo of the officer with the 5 upon the helmet cover. You posted it too in your first thread... ;)

Selam Andreas,

Nice to get in touch with you again.

Thanks for the photos. I will not mention your name. Sorry about the "helmet" one. Time to time I forgot to name the photos I saved. :banger:

Best wishes

Res.Jg.Btl._11_(Lederbesatz,_Eiserner_HaNice photos Demir!!!!!

I´ve got a new one too.

Res.Jg.Btl.11

Note the ribbon to the TWM and the trousers with leather trimmings (used by mountain- and storm-troops)

That picture ist interesting. That bataillon came in 1918 to Palestine and it the photo was taken in Neuhammer (Silesia), the training ground for all troops sent to Asia.Res.Jg.Btl._11_(Lederbesatz,_Eiserner_Ha

Nice photo.

I have a question: The photo has to be taken after the Palestine tour in order to be awarded with the TWM, but you say it was taken in the training camp. 

Can you open this abb. :Res.Jg.Btl.11

Thanks

Hello Demir!

The abb. is Reserve-Jäger-Bataillon 11 (Jäger=Riflemen)

The man must have been served in Turkey before, and then came back to the Training-ground. The Bataillon was in Palestine during Mid-January and Mid-September 1918

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
