Hello,

Recently, I got a bunch of postcards with chinese motives around 1904/5. On the back of these cards is almost always

a stamp:  Ostas(iatische) Bes(atzungs) Brigade. The men (2-3), who send these cards were obviously in the German Schutztruppen in China

I want to show you every card I have, front and back. A small description to every card will be done by me.

There are maybe about 30 cards, so a translation of every card is maybe a bit ignorant, but a few examples would be very nice.

At the end, a value of these cards would be great, because I do know nothing about Postcards in general.

I know, talking about values is always a bit inappropiate, but I would really appreciate it.

By the way, how can I attach 2 pictures in one post? I do not want to post 1 card in 2 posts?

 

 

The title of this card is "Englische Wache" (English Guards).

Tientsin(Tianjin) is a harbor city near Peking(Bejing)

Very nice on several levels  Not only historically significant, but a beautiful example of some of the finest cursive handwriting that I've ever seen! And the photo; did they make the tall gent stand by himself, off to one side, so as not to dwarf the others, edpecailly the CO?

Maybe the photographer told them to stand like this.

That's the CO?  I thought he was the kid bugler.  Not even a side arm...that I could see.
