Guessing from ther size of the projectile I'd say it was a ballistic rocket, maybe like the old Congreve?

Thanks for more great photos, Peter.

That might be the first Askari I have seen armed with a Gewehr 88 rifle. Fantastic photo. I have seen a few armed with Karabiner 88, but rifles usually in the photos I have seen were Gew 71 or Gew 71/84 rifles.

Remarkable.

Hello to all :D; a little more...........................................

Ostasiatisches Expeditionskorps.

On July 3, 1900, the Expeditionary Corps of East Asia was established in Germany with a force of about 19,000 men as volunteers with 861 guns commanded by Generalleutnant Emil von Lessel. On August 12, 1900, Generalfeldmarschall Alfred von Waldersee was appointed Commander in Chief of the High Command of the East Asian Army (Armeeoberkommando in Ostasien). He assumed his command on September 27, 1900. This expeditionary force was deployed in the Chinese cities of Peking, Tientsin, Langfang, Yangtsun, Tangku and Schanghaikwan.................
