Your right, the only evidence that this flag is what the AWM said it is, was Daley and his coments in the 9th LHR war diary, that say this flag came from the 46th Regt?
No other war diary mentions this flag, either Bde, Div or Corps?
Clearly the ID is incorrect, either Daley made a mistake or he was incorrectly informed by the Turkish soldiers to hide their correct unit?
There is enough evidence to put the Daley and the AWM ID of this flag into dought, what happens form here?
Sadly not much as the AWM will not change what is written or will it?
I am coming the concussion that the flag while it could be a Bn or Company flag for any Regt could possibly come from a unit of the 46th Infantry Division and not from the 146th Turkish Regt we asume.
The 46th Div by the end of the war was a mixture of units with;
17th Composite Regt (3Bn/17th, 2Bn/74, 4Bn/73rd, 3Bn/75th Regts with 73rd MG Co + 178th MG Co
These mixed Bn's came from the Arab 25th Div (73, 74 and 75 Regts) formed in Palestine in 1914, and after it was disbanded in mid 1918 having serving on the Rumanian Front.
The 73rd and 75th Regt's were placed into the new 62nd Div (shown as the Amman Div) formed in July 1918 at Amman and served with the II Corps (4th Army)
While the 46th Div was part of the 8th Army Troops and was involved in the withdrawal to Damascus and was captured or destroyed near there?
All are possible units for the flag?
