Hi Cristiano,

Good to hear from you again!

Yes, you're right it was the SWB 24th Foot. Yes, that's a great book. The only recent study of the Battle of Tsingtao in English. It's also good to read the mis-communications and lack of trust between the Japanese and British.

OK, Cristiano your question please!

Cheers
Chris

Hi Lugerku

The name of the Imperial German Military Government in Tsingtau was the Reichsmarineamt, because Tsingtau was administered by German Navy.

correct?

Hang on a second, we're still waiting for Cristiano to confirm if Polar Bear got his question correct. The question was-

"What the name of German farmer and Schutztruppe DSWA soldier who tried to move to East Africa after defeat of Schutztruppe in DWSA and lived as outlaws in the north of Namibia and Angola together other two germans and after many adventures and narrow escapes from the English arrived back to germany in 1920 ?"

PB's answer was-

"Mattenklodt and Voswinkel had both been farmers, Feurstein was the third man."

Is that correct Cristiano?

Then it'll be PBs turn to ask a question. Whoever gets a question right gets to ask the next question.

Cheers
Chris
