German Railway gun captured at the Battle of Amiens - WW1

A huge German Railway gun captured at the Battle of Amiens on 8th August 1918 became a source of some Allied controversy. The Australian 31st Battalion effected its capture, but, in the wake of the continued Allied advance, the gun received a large painted inscription stating that the gun had been captured by the British 4th Army (see picture) of which the ANZAC Corps was a component. A thorough investigation was made of the circumstances of the gun's capture - an insightful example of the contested nature of war material involving notions of identity and ownership - before it was finally transported to Australia for public display (AWM Archive). The gun was originally intended for naval use, mounted in the battleship SMS Hessen. Date: 1918

Greek General Trikoupis being taken to Prison at Ala Chehir

Captured Greek General Trikoupis being taken to Prison at Ala Chehir (Alasehir). Nikolaos Trikoupis (18681956) was a Greek general and politician, most notable for his service in the Greco-Turkish War of 19191922, where he was taken as a prisoner of war (as shown here!). He also participated in the 1896 Summer Olympics, where he came third at the military rifle. In almost the final action of the war on 29 August, 1922 while at Karaja Hisar, also known as Ali Veran (modern Allioren, Turkey) near Kutahya, he was attacked by Turkish cavalry and surrendered along with slightly more than 5,000 men and 300 officers. Trikoupis and General Digenis (CO of II Corps) were taken to Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, who informed him that he had (without his knowledge!) been appointed as commander-in-chief of the Greek Army in Asia Minor, an episode highlighting the level of confusion in the Greek command! Date: 1922
