An individual posted on GB two pictures of native troops on German New Guinea, dated 1890 and 1899. I have not seen these pictures before.

Thanks for posting, They're nice pics, yes that's the old German New Guinea Company Police Force in their brown kepis with the Kar71. Notice in the second photo they have the New Guinea Company flag behind them.
