I notice a photo taken from a newspaper shown in German as Kaiserliche Fliegertruppe Prinz Abbas Halem Abzeichen Pelzmütze Luftwaffe 1917
Sorry I can't post that photo but its on the net under those details.
I have a officer shown as
Abbas Efendi law officer Airforce shown 2nd Aircraft Company 9-18 Capt Mesopotamia (spelling in Ole Nikoljsen)
Do you think they maybe the same man?
Or are they different men?

Prens Abbas Halim Efendi, later pasha brother of turkish Grand Vezier Mısırlı Sait Halim Paşa the Egyptian grandsons of Kavalalı Mehmet (Mohammed) Ali Paşa of Egypt.
The uniform is not turkish.. Only pashas had red stripes on the throusars. The flying symbol of the kalpak is also wrong. It is out of turkish flying symbol.
