Hello!
I recieved this wonderful photo!

We see a group of german soldiers in Turkey.

In the text a "Türkenbatterie" is mentioned. What about the helmet-band? It seems to be red (that would be cavalry - IF the colours haven´t been changed...)

I´d like to know if the unit was from the german-military-mission or from the asian-corps.

What could the unit stamp be? I only can read "Kospoli" (another name for Konstantinopel)

Thanx a lot!

I´m not sure, Chris, but I think, it might be large letter. It could be an E or an F. To me it seems like an "Fü"ö.

Something with "Führung"???

I still need  a list of all units that served with the military mission. I haven´t found a list until now.

I seem to remember the Reichsarchive volume "Yilderim" had a break down of the units in one of the loose flyers at the back

No, Yildirim only shows the battle order of Pascha I and Pascha II since late 1916/1917.

I try to get the battle orders of the military mission. That was a different unit. Pascha I and II were active combat troops to fight in Palestine.

The military mission supported the ottoman army in engeneer, artillery, medic, forteresses and support matters.
