Two German privates of the 1st Ostasiatische Infanterie, Ostasiatische Expeditionskorps or possibly the
Occupation Brigade. Both men wear what is probably the German medal for the Boxer Rebellion (1900). Both men
are armed with the Mauser K-98 rifle and wear the
tropenhelm (tropical helmet) introduced in 1900 along with the
Drillichrock
tunic, which was replaced in early 1901
