I was wondering about a question asked somewhere else about what language was spoken in signal units during the Otoman peroid.

There was some talk about German or French being spoken over the radio's instead of Turkish.

How well trainned were the radio operators and Signal officers during WWI.

Cheers

S.B
Col. Kannengiesser, commander of 9th Division wrote in his book "Gallipoli" published in Beriln im 1927 that his CoS Hulusi Bey spoke german fluent and translated all his orders into Turkish. He had also an aid officer called Ziya Bey who could speak german very good. Ziya Bey was also a translater at the division.
