Welcome to the Forum and thanks for that question. I didn't know Carl was von Klewitz's first name, so thank you for that.
All the information I have on these two is that they were regular army officers on secondment to New Guinea. Mayer was from the Königliches Bayerisches Schweres Reiter Regt. Franz Ferdinand von Österreich-Este Nr.2. and replaced Oberleutnant Prey sometime in 1914. Prey was from the 3. Posensches Infanterie-Regt. Nr.58 and had been in New Guinea since 1911 (although Baumann lists this as 1906- does anyone know the correct date?). Von Klewitz was also sent out in 1914, he was from the Dragoner-Regt. Königin Olga (1. Württembergisches) Nr.25. This information was supplied to me by Bruce Swanton, another of our members.
Does anyone else know any more about these men, or have a photo of any of them?
Thank you very much for your information. All that about them I know is, in principle here:
