Colonelgeneral Fahrettin Altay writes in his Gallipoli memories "The first unit which was actually the first real support of Central powers to Gallipoli battle area come on Nov 15th. This was a 24cm motorized Austrian_Hungarian Battary. This battery was given to the order of left wing of the Anafartalar (Suvla) group. They soon made affective fire on Mestantepe. In december another KuK 15 cm batte...ry come to Gallipoli. This was given to the order of South Group. Till the embarquement of peninsula by the British no other force was send to Gallipoli. The number of germans men, NCO and COs only reached to highest level of 500. We were thinking a great attack to the British on Nov. 5th...... "

TS's note: men of the two artillery battery were all Hungarians.

Carl Mühlman also gives the sameinformation in his book: " On the middle of nov. and at the beginning of dec. the first non-Turkish reinforcement units reached to Gallipoli. They were units of Ausrian-Hungary. A 24 cm motorised mörser battery and a 15 cm obüs (howitzer) battery. The first one was given toAnafartalar (Suvla) Group, the other opposite to sedülbahir. Al the batteries coused much trouble to the enemy"

Who knows the names of the commanders of these 2 battalions?

Danke Schön Christian
We learn from von Sanders that 15 cm Haubitz-Batterie Nr. 36 des k.u.k. Festungsartillerieregimentes Nr. 7: Hptm Karl Manouschek was taken to İzmir and took part at the re-occupying of Kösten island from the british.

What happened to 24 cm Motor-Mörserbatterie Nr. 9 (türkisch):

Was Hauptmann Barber KIA? and after a short time: Hptm Kodar von Thurnwerth What happened?

Hi,

I just could read that Barber became sick after a short time and was replaced by Kodar.
