Ottoman officers with Ahmed Izzet Pasha

Post by stevebecker » 06 Mar 2022 23:19

Mates,

Do you have any details on these Ottoman officers on staff to Ahmed Izzet Pasha in Yemen 1903 or 1911 and what they did during WWI and WofI

Seyfi Düzgören

Saffet Arikan

Salih Omurtak

Nazim Bey

They are possibly graduated from the Military Academy 1903 or 1907 with a number of others that Izzet took to Yemen either 1903 or 1911, like

Fuad Bey (Erden)

Mustafa Ismet (Inönü)

Tosun,
teşekkür ederim
I am sorry, but the photo shows is the named officer as Nazim Bey
I have many officers by that name
I though there maybe Ottoman Graduation lists showing what officers were in that class (P. 1323(1907)
And if Nazim may have been one of them?
Of cause he is the only man named as Bey, while all the others have second names (possibly named under the Ataturk peroid)
Stay safe
