Tosun,

What do you have on the wounding of Staff Col. Suleyman Fethi Bey (Istanbul 1877- Izmir May 15th 1919)

Records show he commanded the 47th Div around and Amman area in Sept 1918 and the last commander/

British records place the 47th Div;

shown Jan 1918 Allied reports (12th Regt 147th Regt and 148th Regt (4330 men) -

shown July 1918 Allied reports 12th Regt 147th Regt 148th Regt (8500 men)

shown July 1918 Allied reports 24th FAR (1Bn & 2Bn (24x 75mm guns)

shown Aug 1918 Allied reports 12th Regt 147th Regt 148th Regt -

shown Sept 1918 Allied reports 147th Regt (1000 men 18 MG's) + Div Cav (150 men) around Deraa & Jenin

He must have been wounded some time around Sept to Nov 1918?

Any idea

S.B

Tosun,

Thank you.

So he was evacuated due to illness not wounding.

and he returned after his cure to again command the 47th Div for the last battles in 1918.

Cheers

I once knew that he was wounded. But recently I learned that he was vacuated due to illness. On the other hand 47th div was transported to İzmir in July 1917.
