Found this German officer Lt Ludwig Keiper who has some interesting Ottoman Air units in his history, so far I am unsure what units these are?

observer Ottoman Flying Battalion 1 Dardanelle 1 Nov 1915 to 18 Feb 1916

observer Ottoman Flying Battalion 2 Baghdad 19 Feb 1916 to 15 Oct 1916

Adjt to Chief of Air Affairs Turkey 16 Oct 1916 to 15 Dec 1916

Instructor at Flying School at San Stafano 16 Dec 1916 to Sep 1918

Leader of 15th Flying Battalion Turkey Sept 1918 to Oct 1918

Commander of Flying Ottoman 3rd Army Oct 1918 to Oct 1918

I think the 1st Flying Battalion may refer to the 1st Sqn or Company so the 2nd Flying Bn would be the 2nd Sqn or Company and the 15th Flying Bn would be the 15th Sqn or Company?
