Turkish Uniforms-shoulder strap in the chest???

Hi for all members.

I found these two photos that show turkish soldiers wearing a badge.

That means a shoulder strap in the chest of uniform.

This is a shoulder strap?

Would the item on there uniform be like a German torch issued to NCO's in the Turkish Army?

Dear Turcos, Nice that you returned. Sorry I couldnt find any other NCO pictures and information for you. I know the first pix since my childhood..It is from Gallipoli. I always asked myself what that badge could be? one has it on left the other on right.
