It was to be expected that they were also under military surveillance, so the landing was soft and armed, and carried 4 machine guns. So we went ashore, the man woke everyone up. People who could be found there were asked to gather in one place during landing. Anything that might have any military significance was destroyed. This station was important in that there was a cable from Australia to Europe through this island atoll. the telegraph pole was also important as a radio bridge what was not known was that at the same time a troop transport was en route from australia to europe which led to the withdrawal from the near distance of islands of death to along the head of the allied convoy one has received a radio message from kiel in iceland the sudden demolition sos sos the australian armored cruiser sydney is sent for reconnaissance on the horizon a cloud of smoke was felt which was initially addressed as the tender from emden coal emder had observed this but initially made no assumption that it is ours the ship aster is coming then the rocker came closer however at considerable speed and that made the ducks suspicious and one had to assume that It was not the coal trader finally recognizing the extremes would rush into said cruiser at the sight of the latest design with superior weaponry, sydney immed he immediately opened the battle with his long range defenders wanted to protect the ends at a distance and covered them with grenades at the ends can hardly co

All the more tempting the prospect of a happy homecoming and any moment the victorious Australian cruiser may be here arriving in full rest heading straight over the reef and you have no time to waste you have to traverse the sharp coral shoals of the island in the high seas you finally reach the open sea the three confiscated masters are named after the woman uhr mez aisha still has an idea how prophetic this name will be, it is estimated that the next box will be more than 1000 miles away, you know that his plan is insane but he has decided to take his men home even if they have to circumnavigate the world to do so still make a strong northwest watercourse let's hope the longitude is correct the chronometer found is unreliable it's two or three weeks to sumatra if the wind blows again today dead calm there was enough to eat so you had enough canned food from the kieling islands of course there was no nothing fresh the man was worried you might have to suffer from scurvy you also don't have m medication so if someone was sick he couldn't have helped much and sadly it was so he couldn't conjure up the fresh water tanks of beforehand and three of the four tanks were dirty, so you only have very little drinking water. strictly assigned to you basically only a week's worth of water left for the crew rainwater caught tonight is moderately drinkable in the absence of tobacco smoke crew t tries in vain to catch fish no prospect of will is beginning to have doubts if they are a escape plan not too naive on the rotten sailing ship you will never be able to reach germany you would have to change to a steamer but where do you come from after three weeks you finally make it to sumatra this is under dutch colonial administration but how will the neutrals behave in a war?
I hope you believe us that we are in trouble. They can't tell us anything. I decline them I must somehow organize our onward journey in sumatra my father had succeeded in padang despite being guarded by the dutch, as a neutral state we went to great lengths not to give the germans any significant help by slipping a note in the rendezvous point was agreed with a german steamer after 24 hours they have to set sail again in the hope that the german consul manages to arrange a suitable freighter as the rendezvous point they had agreed three degrees 20 minutes wide 99 degrees 19 minutes long nothing more than a point in the immeasurable expanse of the indian ocean your position is correct far and wide there is no steamer in sight finally a freighter hell straight towards you is the crossing under the happy german flag you can translate but there is a drop of bitterness without port you have to sink the ashtray of the railing of the jazz thing to see how it slowly sinks If the loss is deep in our hearts, it is only to her that we owe our freedom on the German freighter.
Scattered Imperial landing score can rest for the first time. Until then, actually, I still wasn't quite sure where we were going and then my father saw an ad in the newspaper that there was talk of fighting between Turkish and English troops in Arabia, so one could conclude that Turkey was on the side of the Germans. England and France had also intervened in the war and from there the idea arose to find the way back home via Turkey on the night of January 8, 1915 older freighters on the coast of Yemen to the southern tip of the great turkey. empire the forward journey across the red sea is by allied warships but mücke almost blocked an ingenious plan he discovered in the library that a new railway line is now supposed to lead directly to slingshot in yemen so everything what we have to do is buy a ticket to get in and go home the supply brought the landing source the act to the roughrider waterfront and you could see a string of lights there you could call a stealth landing played until you noticed that this pier has two masts and four funnels offered a French armored cruiser was indeed but also the blessed crooked and did not realizethat then a few kilometers further up with rowboats from the show they sing on land as soon as they are landed by armed men biological lines threatened mücke tries to clarify to him that they are not enemies but German brothers in arms of the Turks without success a German if he can recognize a German coin with the image of emperor al bani but actually it works confidently the dispersed landing pulls the train in the direction of hurghada the first mate often after a short stay to reach the railway each state one german sailors arrive as if they came from another place they are taken to the turkish fortress which is the garrison of their ally he cannot resist the impression that the turkish officers like hello he wants to keep as a reinforcement you have landed in the far south of the turkish empire near the far north of the peninsula Arabian is the seat of the Turkish sultan fairly constant but his empire is trembling in the occupied provinces it is boiling or violently want independence so far the superior Turkish army was still able to put down all the uprisings but that was enough. to arabia construction work on the arabian peninsula is in silted up political turmoil the last section to yemen was never completed the return home of the german landing course was therefore a long way off mücke dejectedly noted in his diary to our regret I had to realize that the railway here is a fata morgana it just won't admit it sorry ing it's useless you have to keep going you have to try to get to the terminus somewhere in the north in the vineyards of yemen unknown food and weather make things difficult on landing hit the first cases of malaria calm and diphtheria appear no lack of treatment drugs as a result the lifeline will soon be reached the first men lose only one from the landing stage szücs speaks arabic and can ask the locals for directions the sailor he pees the former foreign legionnaire writes it in his diary we have to make a sana according to the turks the city behind the mountains country advice not available going over hills and valleys bringing up the rear with our sick bins progressing slowly through the cooler mountain air is at least a little better on the sixth day we reach the mountain village of menacher, our destination of the stage, of course, is not prepared for us, although they also assured us of this. st is the turks lying next to the truth about yemen seems to have lost control long ago from the locals i hear that in the north the bellicose voices are already in revolt against the turks we have to move on as soon as possible now the country road to theirs is before us winding like a snake through the mountains finds out it's around five when the city is suddenly in front of us it's like a thousand and one nights after they've moved to your rooms binkert will play cooking for his comrades everything you need for that you will find in the market where a great offer is the first thank you it was like a kitchen emaciated sick people get on their feet quickly after two weeks men like him are possible in the march who want to continue but the Turkish military governor blocks their exit, they have to wait to see what their superiors order to eliminate the Constantinople plant, wait to two months day after day week after week lost useless I believe that difficulties die There are completely different reasons for my departure.
The Governor wants to keep my troops here to use against the approaching insurgents. I will never bring my men home with or without the Turks. The mosquito is the Turkish governor. do sana so nice turns out to be a dead end you have to go to the railway possible patience is exhausted he doesn't want me to discourage him anymore i have not received any news yet that constantinople i have been waiting here for two weeks put yours under the men refused my request from the turkish side support was not expected at first then came the opportunity to help my father he met a retired turkish general who was a bit worried about his cash assets after all i don't rule out that insurgents will soon besiege the summer again and could take and after he lost his assets, so he was willing to provide money to the jetty as a loan that would later be repaid by the German empire, so my father gladly accepted this loan and now he had a chance
