Remembered Today:

Photo Identification from a captured film in East Africa

Holger Kotthaus

Recommended Posts

When I reread an old book, I noticed the following in some photos:

`Captured film´. Based on the motifs, I suspect it was a British film.

I have attached some photos that should actually be helpful for identification.


Um Ostafrika”, Erinnerungen von Charlotte und Ludwig Deppe, Dresden 1925


Can anyone identify the first four photos from a British film?

Are there any other background information about this film?



(First photo is particularly interesting. It shows one of the four German guns,

10,5-cm light Field-howitzer L/16 Modell 98/08 Krupp, which arrived on 16.

March 1916 with the blockade runner “Marie” the GEA coast.)
