The regimental doctor Captain Dimitroyati. This doctor was originally one of the Istanbul Greeks in the 57th Regiment. (Remember that nobody lived from this Regiment). He said "Please do not send me to a different cemetery because I'm non-Muslim. I want to be side by side with you, because I will die for this country".
Captain Dimitroyati loved his country and went to fight for her. He also loved his country's men and died with them. When he was mortally wounded and was taken to a field hospital, his last words to a sergent from his regiment were the following:
"Do not! Sergent Ali, you would tell that I'm non-muslim, you would burry me to a different place. Do not seperate me from you!". Before leaving for the battle, Sergent Ali had the attending soldier promise to pass Cpt. Dimitroyati's last words to the higher officers. Today Captain Dimitroyati's name lies side by side with his comrades at 57th Regiment Memorial.
