Prinz Abbas Halem

Post by stevebecker » 04 Jan 2021 00:50


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?

Abbas Halem must be Abbas Halim. There is no turkish flying officer called Abbas Halem or Abbas Halim or Abbas Hilmi. There is one
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.
