I wonder if anyone has a picture of this man?

He was an Anglo-German who served in the Ottoman Army in 1877-78 and eventually wrote a book entitled "The Siege of Plevna, 1877."

As a Captain with the 4th Bn. Cheshire Regt. he served in South Africa from 25 Feb 1900 to 12 Jun 1901 and, again, from 16 Aug 1901 to 21 Apr 1902. According to the medal rolls, he earned a QSA with CC and OFS clasps and a KSA with both clasps.

He married in England in 1884 and lived on the Isle of Wight for many years where he described himself as an "Author and Teacher."

Any information gratefully received.
