I´ve recieved this nice photo.

It shows parts of a Kraftwagen-Kolonne in the desert.

The reverse says:


Taurus, Kl. Asien (Klein-Asien = Asia Minor)

Auto-Colonne 507

5.April 1916


Kraftf. Fhr. G. Krüger (Kraftfahrzeugführer = Driver)

K.K.R. Form. 508 (K.K.R. Formation 508)




What does K.K.R. mean?

What does the handwritten words on the right side of the card mean?


The colums 507 belonged to the Kommandeur der Kraftfahrabteilung 8 and 508 belonged to the Kommandeur der Kraftfahrabteilung 6.

Both stood under command of the Heeresgruppe Yildirim in Palestine

Hello Andreas!

Thank you for your help, but I googled Hans-Lloyd. The factory was founded in 1919. That would not fit.


Mußt schon richtig lesen  :D

Die Hansa-Lloyd Werke A.G. entstanden 1914 aus dem Zusammenschluss der Hansa-Automobil GmbH in Varel und der Norddeutschen Automobil und Motoren AG(NAMAG) in Bremen-Hastedt (Föhrenstraße).

Habe ich beim ersten Lesen auch überlesen.


Sorry for posting in German, its the text that the Hansa Lloyd Werke existed before 1919.

    • As a theology student my professor, a much published former Naval chaplain, set us an essay, saying that if we could answer that successfully we would be guaranteed  a good degree "Which of the gospel writers was the biggest liar, discuss."   I got a good mark, but  don't want to be burned for heresy.   P
