I mentioned yesterday that Adrianople sat on a disputed border (particularly disputed between Turkey and Greece).  For more information on the subject, keepers may want to read the Wikipedia entry on the Greco-Turkish War.

Turkish soldiers in Constantinople after the Greco-Turkish War.
This photo could just as easily be used to represent Turkish soldiers in Adrianople to keep the peace.

Again, slightly out of the scope of this blog, but.... heres a photo of Greek irregular volunteers on the frontier during the earlier 1897 Greco-Turkish War.  Their sons who fought in 1919-1922 looked very similar.
