Re: Turk Town

Thanks for the interesting story and photos Christella.

My father was in the Turkish Navy, he had to stay at Tyne dock for a few months (where he meet my mam) waiting to get his ship repaired/refurbished, a lot of that time was spent travelling back and forth from Tyne Dock to Portsmouth. Of course that was in the 1950's not 1850's

Re: Turk Town

Just done a quick google search, aparently the cemetery is looked after by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, but could well be wrong.

According to many they were orginally buried in a local cemetery but were later moved to the Haslar Royal Naval Cemetery. Looking at the photos there seems to be a few older looking gravestones so wonder if there were from the orginal burial??

Heres a slighly detailed artical I managed to find:

Quote:
a folklore expert J.E. MANN says he knows this issue from early ages but the only thing he has found is an unsigned handwriting document. it is said in this document that the relationship between gosport and Turks goes to crusades; the English crusades brought the Turkish captives to gosport and keep them in the area now used as '' Gosport police centre''..This areafirst is used as captive camp later as captive graveyard...But there is no official documents about that and never an archeological excavation is performed there.. on the other hand the Haslar hospital thats used since 1745 has a clear relationship between Turks.. Since 1996 this hospital was belong to english royal navy and a part of the graveyard of this hospital was seperated for Turks.. The first Turks buried there were the Ottoman navy sailors who has visited Gosport ..They were the victims of cholera epidemic..But there is also another claim that a Turkish colony has really lived there...
the gravestones thats in Clayhall Royal Navy graveyard proves this claim ..because the 23 of the gravestones were belong to the years 1850 and 1851... the first place of graveyard was not its last place...while building another structure to the hospital the graves carried to their new place,near Alver Lake in 1902 and in 1985 Turkish General Staff restored the gravestones and graveyard .. The visit of Ottoman ships to Gosport attracted lots of attention and the gosportians liked the sailors ..the news in the local newspaper proves this...The sailors went shopping and stayed there for six and a half month...there are also some more Trukish marks in this area; in Fort Nelson Castle one of the most important piece of Royal Navy weapon museum is a Turkish cannon which is made in 1464...This connon is sent to England in 1857 and in 1708 another cannon is sent by mistake and stands in this museum...

this article is published in september 2004 in the weekly magazine named ''TOPLUMSAL TARİH'' and prepared by Dr. Zeynep Aygen tutor of Porstmouth university ...
Shame how much Ottoman history has been lost/forgotten.
