German Armoured Cars at Aleppo October 1918

In David Fletcher's book War Cars on page 43, and in several other books, reference is made to a running fight between Rolls Royce and Model T's of the Light Car Patrols encountering German Armoured Cars and Machine Gun armed lorries, and fighting a high speed chase. The Rolls reaching as much as 50 mph at some points in the battle.

David Fletcher says these German armoured cars were probably Ehrhardts or Daimlers. Has anybody ever seen photos of the aftermath of this battle, or of German Armoured Cars in the Ottoman Empire?
