Re: HALEP,BAGHDAD and BASRA circa 1904

OUTSTANDING! Istanbul Thankyou very much for taking the time to answer. A lot more
info than I had hoped to get.

Also, have you found anything on GAZZE?

Respectfully,

HALEP,BAGHDAD and BASRA circa 1904

Hi Everyone,

HALEP was a side paddle steamer built in 1904 by Howaldtswerke for the German company ANADOLU-BAGDAT Railroad Co. Halep had two sister ships, Baghdad and Basra.
Could some member of this great forum provide technical data and ship histories for these three ships?

Respectfully,

Re: Black Sea 1915

Istanbul, Thank you for taking the time to answer. Much obliged. So it appears that both ships survived the war without a scratch or bruise. The "fog of war" is a real curse to history. But moving on. GAZZE a Turk ship was sunk on 5 May 1915. Do you have specifications for that ship? Builder,year bu...

Re: Black Sea 1915

Thanks for that data. Now, how did those two ferries meet their end? Let me take a guess. Both sunk in a collision. Both sunk in a storm. Scuttled at the appearance of German destroyer, Both mined. Sunk because of internal explosions. I'm delighted to see that you're very amenable to sharing the ext...

Re: Black Sea 1915

Moin Urs, DANKE for taking the time to answer my query. I was tickled that a noted scholar on WWII German S Boats from THE German forum would answer me. Unfortunately, it didn't help. I'll rephrase my question. Which one or two Russian ships were responsible for sinking the two Turkish ferry boats? ...

Black Sea 1915

From a Turkish language site on the internet (yes,I know), two ships were sunk by Russian surface vessels on 7 March 1915. The 2 ships were the AZIMET #23 and the SELAMET #25 ferry boats owned by Sirket-i Hariye but requisitioned by the Turkish Navy. Which Russian craft destroyed them, where sunk an...

Re: Printed sources for Turkish merchant shipping losses in WW1?

Istanbul, Thanks for taking the time to find an answer. Wrecksite and Clydeships list the ship, the one that
is not a Turkish word. Must have been lost in translation.

Respectfully,

Re: Printed sources for Turkish merchant shipping losses in WW1?

Are Iskondar and Uskudar the same ship? https://www.clydeships.co.uk/view.php?year_built=&builder=&ref=16351&vessel=CRAIGFORTH and see Istanbul's message from Feb.18. They sure look like identical twins to me Except for how and where "Craigforth" was sunk. Besides Uskudar mentioned above, I could on...

Russian (Cerilic) Turk,no formal language rules pre revolution, and of course English. Also three different calendars lunar, Julian and ...

Thank-you Istanbul for your thorough answer. Small addition, "One Officer and two privates had became martyrs. Thank god, nothing happened to others." source: Binbasi Nazmi Bey -Canakkale Deniz Savaslari Gunlugu s 61-62. It is not clear to me whether the casualties occured on USKUDAR or RESIT PASA w...

Re: unknown steamer

Here are some more possibilities.
Australdale
Australia
Australian-UK
Australian-French
Australier-Belgian
Australind

All, I believe fit the time period 1900-1920

What might help is a stamp collector to decode the
cancellation mark.

Hope this helps and doesn't complicate the matter.
