I am after any details on the German 60th FAR sent to Turkey during the the war. These are what I have so far;
60th FAR Capt Apfel
1Bty 60th FAR - (2x 105mm guns) Lt Schmude
2/Bty/60th FAR - (4x 150mm How) Capt Petri
3Bty/60th FAR - (2x 21cm How (Mörsers) (not seen in Palestine) Capt Naumann
4Bty 60th FAR - (2x 21cm How (Mörsers) (not seen in Palestine) Capt Hartung
THe Orbat for this Bn shows the four Batteries, but it appears only two of whom were sent to Palestine, the others possibly remained around the Gallipoli Area to cover the Dardenells.
Reports give this unit in Palestine around 1917 but it disappears later that year, either disbanded or sent back to Germany?
Can anyone help with its history and movement during the war?
