Bar: Colonial Battle/Campaign: China Boxer Rebellion 1900-19

Rick Research

These splendid little minis are found on a 1935+ ribbon bar.

The combination is highly unlikely:

"Tientsin" was a purely NAVAL bar, for siege of the Allied bridgehead there in 1900.

"Huolo" was the main set-piece battle for ARMY forces in 1901. Perhaps some naval shore personnel from composite sub-units might have been present.

"Peking" is found quite improbably commonly on full sized medal bars-- even though no one but the surviving Embassy guards from the epic 55 day siege of the International Compound were eligible. It seems that any German veteran who passed through decided that he was thereby entitled to this. :rolleyes:

After 35 years, regulations were slackly enforced on such minutiae. :catjava:
