Remembered Today:

What German unit?


Recommended Posts



This grave shows


Mendelsohn Gerhard     Kanonier    Schallmesstr. 44    1917-18    (1893 at Eisleben DoD 21-10-18) died at Feld Lazarett 218 near Derat-Nazareth buried German military cemetery Dar'a Syria 

I did wonder if it was like this officer 


Pösentrup    Capt    EBSK 44/48 (Eisenbahnsonderkommando) special railroad service command - Eisenbahnbau- Sonder-Kompagnie 44/48 used on the Hedschasbahn (Hedjaz Railway) (not identified)?




Wegscheider Hans Anton     Capt    L.Feldhaub.lehrb. 10.bayr. Feld.-Art.-Rgt.    1916-17    (1882 at Augsburg DoD 13-5-17) Fleckfieber (typhus) Krankheit (illness) listed on Memorial at Evangelischer Cemetery Damascus

Any ideas?

Thanks mate its an area to check.


The Germans had a few units in Palestine, but sound ranging I've not seen before?


Units like


Gebirgs-Blinker-Züge 27 and 28 (Lichtsignalzug 27 and 28)


Lichtmeßtrupp 170 - Lichtsignalzug 


Divisions-Funker-Abteilung 1724 Light Funkstation No 9


Blinker-Zug 1730
