Mates,

 

Quick question about this site

 

An entry shows what looks like

 

Trgef @ Which is an E for England

 

triegsgefangen England oder feinen kolonien

 

Now Google translate gives me something like

 

Caught in a trap England or Five/Fine Colonies

 

The Naval Officer is

 

Zirzow (possibly Otto)    Kor-Kapt (Maj) Marine    Navigation officer SMS Goeben (Yavuz) Seyir subayi (Navigator) 1914    1914-16    (possibly born at Danzig ) triegsgefangen England oder feinen kolonien possibly PoW 1918 awarded EK I 11-15 shown in Klaus Wolf's Book
 

Does this mean he was taken PoW or what?

 

Any ideas

Kriegsgefangen, with a k, not triegsgefangen - so yes, a PoW.
