Hi Peter H - photos are amazing, and the website great. I'm now living in the UK for the time being so should be able to access better information for my family researches, and hopefully eventually visit Istanbul. Exciting stuff, has taken me a while to organise it all. Do you know where these photos were taken?

Dear Viviane;
As a newcomer to the site; I just became aware of your quest about your family's antecedents. The following might be old hat to you by now but here it goes;
1) Your late Mother was born on the night of 3 / 4 May Monday, 1915 at 6.00 hours in the morning.
2) Your Grand Father and undoubtedly his family were amongst the 2,000 odd conscripts and 64 officers who left "Abkhah" on the 1st of February, 1919 in direction of "ash Shouqaiq" Landing on the Red Sea to be embarked on British steamers en route to Cairo.
Best Regards and Good Luck
Osman Levend

Hello Osman Levend,

Very interesting information.

I found some additional entries with dates in the british War Diary of the General Staff Officer
from Aden, about the evacuation of the 21. Inf.-Division from "ash Shouqaiq" (Shukaik) to
Kamaran Island in the Red Sea. It seem to be that the evacuation could closed on 1st March 1919.

The photos are from Sina Palestine not from Yemen. In one of the photos we see von Sanders Pasha with Turkish doctors. The building is Austria-Hungarian Hospital at Jerusalem.

I would be very surprised, if there are any photos from the Turkish Garrison in Asir aviable.

The only photos, I have seen are here, and show some fighters from the Sejjid al-Idrísi in Asir.

Hi all, Tosun Saral, Tanzania, and Osman Levent, The photo of Abha is great, Tanzania, and looks like one or two my grandfather took on Abha. Thanks for the information Osman, and also the war diary excerpts Tanzania - I'm now living in London with good access to the Imperial War Museum & national Archives, so will be looking for the war diaries of those units. Am just getting back to the Turkish side and my grandfather after some work on the British lot. As well as all the moving around etc. Have recently found one of my British connections as a Gallipoli. Regards to all, Viviane

Hi Viviane
glad you are still hunting and having success-your family has a fascinating background. A useful guide on uniforms has been produced by Chris Flaherty , who post sometimes in this forum.
Link to the medical services is here:

Good luck on your research.
best wishes
Dominic

Hi Dominic

Many thanks for the link - really informative, will check against some of the photos taken in
Asir of my Grandfather & groups of Turkish troops & medical personnel. Some of these I may not have posted here, but will
try to identify some of their other uniforms.

Hunting is a good word for this - its very addictive...

Regards, Viviane
