Turkish Demonstration Battalion

The German Kaiser is said to have reviewed this battalion when he visited Turkey in November 1917.

Did such a unit exist?

I think this unit was equivalent to the German pre war Garde Lehr Battalion,given the role of demonstrating new weapons,equipment and uniforms.
