Names of soldiers in Africa

Post by stevebecker » 07 Oct 2019 01:10

Mates,

I was going throw the Verlustlisten 1. Weltkrieg chasing names of German soldiers in Palestine/Turkey and found this with many names of soldiers in Africa.

If you enter Deutsch-Ostafrika, Deutsch-Südwestafrika and Schutztruppe für Deutsch-Südwestafrika

You get around Es wurden 6744 Einträge gefunden.

To many for me to go threw but as that's your area you maybe interested.

Cheers

S.B

Mates,

Found some of interest?

Austauschgefangene Schutztruppen aus der Schweiz 8 Togo and or

Schutztruppen 17 Togo and or

Internierte Schutztruppen in der Schweiz 4 Landesverteidigungstruppe Togo

All these units are shown under a soldier named

Maske Günther

But there are a number of men shown in this unit?

S.B

Chris,

Sorry mate been away


Yes the site was given to me as

Verlustlisten 1. Weltkrieg

Its also shown as;

http://des.genealogy.net/eingabe-verlus ... arch/index

Its the casualty returns for the German Army during the war.

Clearly not all are given but officers and soldiers killed wounded or injuried and possibly prisoners or missing are listed.

My translation of the old German used in these documents is limited but most can be understood.

Cheers
