This group of Germans arrived at Motuihe Island from Samoa just before war’s end in 1918. Reinhold Hofmann grabbed them shortly after arrival and got them to pose on the wharf road. Unfortunately, we know only a few of their identities but viewers may recognise a relative or forbear. If you do, please comment below. Some identities appear to be as follows: man sitting on fence at left, Hans Korner (?) ex-DH & PG; man 5th from left in dark jersey Wilhelm ‘Mumu’ Arp; man in middle (in front) in dark jacket and hat Karl F.W.Nickel; man 4th from right at back Kurt Meyer; man second from right Wilhelm Nusshaer (also Nuzshaer); man at far right, Dr Max Bartel. Other men believed to be in this group include Johannes Wesche, J. Graf, J.Kroger, R. Maiern. Docke, Suhren, Wulf, Maas, Olms, Winkelmann.
