Please don't thank me. Thank the late Captain O'Keefe USV for the wonderful photographic record he left us. His collection of the China Relief Expedition is pricleless! The "German" photographs are just a small example of the hundreds of photos he took.

I would be very interested to know how the kit was held together.

Said to be Navy officers landing,1900.

But I think it could be Prinz Heinrich visiting Tsingtao much earlier.
