Hi there,
I'm Chris from Germany, freshly entered this forum.
During my research for my PhD, I found this forum here, being amazed by these great pictures.

FYI:
I’d like to prepare my PhD about the German Colonel Paul KUHLO, who served in the German “Ostasiatisches Marine Detachement” (OMD) (East Asian Marine Brigade) during the battle of Qingdao/China in 1914.

Paul Kuhlo was born on 27th April 1866 in Hamm/Germany and died on 24th April 1943 in Bielefeld/Germany.
From 1905-1908, Kuhlo served as member of the East Asian Occupation Brigade (“Ostasiatische Besatzungsbrigade”) in Peking/Tientsin and went back to Germany. On 14th July 1912 he commanded to the German Marines in China (Peking and Tientsin) and went to Qingdao on July 1914. After the Battle of Qingdao, Kuhlo was captured by the Japanese Army and became a prisoner of war (firstly in Tokyo-Asakusa, later transferred to Narashino; POW-number 115). He left Japan in December 1919 and went back to Germany.

So I am looking for any information about:
- History of the “OMD” and the forerunner East Asian Occupation Brigade (“Ostasiatische Besatzungsbrigade”)
- Battle of Qingdao
- POW in Japan

BR, Chris

Hello to all :D; as a complement for this great thread:
Ostasiatische Besatzungsbrigade.

The brigade was a command level of the German Reich. It was usually the executive level between division and regiment. The commander was a general. The brigade had one or more regiments or battalions according to the branch of force. It had no brigade troops, comparable to the corps troops of the army corps.

Formation history::
On May 17, 1901, the East Asian Occupation Brigade (Ostasiatische Besatzungsbrigade) was created by dissolution and transformation of the Expeditionary Corps of East Asia. On May 1 and December 11, 1902, the brigade was further reduced and reclassified. On March 6, 1906, the brigade was dissolved and replaced by the predecessor of the East Asian Naval Detachment (Ostasiatischen Marine-Detachements), or the East Asian Detachment with troops from a battalion strenght. Cities where the brigade was deployed: Beijing, Tientsin, Langfang, Yangtsun, Tangku and Schanghaikwan. The commanders were:

From June 1901: Generalmajor Oskar von Rohrscheidt
November 20, 1903 - October 16, 1906: Generalmajor Eugen von Petzel
