Would just like to say a huge thanks to all those who helped and contributed to such a special few days in Israel. The purpose of the trip was to see the Scotland national team play Israel at football (the less said about the match the better), however to take in so many WW1 sites was really the pinnacle of the trip. Special thanks goes to  Assaf who conducted a fantastic tour of Nebi Samwill. A tour packed with such information and he really does know that site like the back of his hand. An amazing few days and thanks again to all who helped.

Great photos. I wonder the story behind that statue of Ottoman officer POW(?) and Australian LH soldier.

 

Thanks for sharing.

Mate,

 

I was wondering about the Grave of the Ottoman officer (Youbashi Shedid Efendi) or Yuzbashi (captain) .

 

What cemetery is this?

 

If he died 2 Oct 1918 then he must have been a PoW some where, as the Ottoman Army was in retreat passed Damascus heading for the Border.

 

Cheers

Steve,

 

Yes, there's a whole line of Ottoman and German graves at Mt. Scopus (Jerusalem War Cemetery). 

These people died as POW's in Military medical facilities from wounds or disease. As far as I know

- enemy's dead were not brought from battlefields to British Commonwealth cemeteries.

i was stunned to see the Ottoman grave as this was the first time I had seen this. (missed them last time I was there) In total there are three at Jerusalem cemetery. As Eran highlighted they are in a row along with around 15 German graves. Just one of a number of things that I never expected to see. 

 

Assaf i really am so thankful for the tour. It was excellent. Alistair also passes on his thanks and best wishes.

Mates,

 

I just tried to see who the Germans were buried at German graves at Mt. Scopus, but no luck?

 

Do you have any details on these men buried here?

 

Cheers

i think there are three Italian graves in there also. We couldn't find them and unsure as to how they ended up there.
