German officer at Beersheba 1917

Post by stevebecker » 24 Feb 2018 01:00

Mates,

I am after anyone who can confirm this German officer mentioned by Neate?

A mate sent me this

"This is Neate's letter to The Spectator in response to yet another repeat of Meinertzhagen's tale (or lie?)
see http://archive.spectator.co.uk/article/ ... ertzhagens
In it Neate mentions that the contents of the haversack were passed over to a "German intelligence officer at Beersheba, one Leutnant Schilling"

I can find no officer named Schilling in Palestine and with the Ottoman 3rd Corps?

Can you find who he is and any details about him?

Cheers

S.B

Mates,

I did a check on Intell officers in the Germans sent to the Ottoman Empire and found these men so far on records?

Dienst Lt Yildirim ordusu askeri haberalma biriminde (Yildirim Army military intelligence unit)

Gerlach Capt 1. Istihkam Taburu Komutani 3.Kolordu istihbarat subayi 307. Istihk. Tab. Kom (1st Fortification Bn commander to 3rd Army intelligence officer to 307th Employ. Tab. kom) from Pnr Bn No 15

Hagen von der Capt Ask. Beden egitimi okulu Komutani Istihbarat Subayi Suveys harekatinda (Commander Intelligence Agent Suveys in the school of physical education)

Sube (Istihbarat) Baskani 2. Kolordu Kurmay Baskani (General Staff 2. Sube (Intelligence) President 2. Corps Chief of Staff) 1914-15

Of cause the translation from Turkish to English may in part be incorrect but they do show Intell as part of their service.

I was told that this is the correct forum for this belt buckle-I could use some help with this belt buckle, I picked it up last weekend at a garage sale for 20 bucks , at first I thought that it was an Imperial German officer buckle, but it does not have the large “W” and only the crown. The belt is lighter weight and their no belt attachment. Can anyone help me with what type of buckle it is.

Mate,

Sorry but you should have opened at Question on this?

But without seeing what your talking about its hard to say what you are saying?

Ottoman belt buckles had a half moon
