G009685 PHOTOGRAPH "German East Africa".

A German Portrait photo from German East Africa. Portrait photo taken outdoors shows a man in parts of a uniform including a pith helmet and what appears to be a Schutztruppe belt buckle. Because resupply to German troops in German East Africa was impossible after the start of WW1, German officers and NCOs usually wore captured uniform items as they could acquire them during four years in the bush from late 1914 to November 1918. German forces in German East Africa were the last German combatants to surrender in WW1 (because news of the German surrender in Europe did not reach Africa for several days). Inscription on reverse in pencil: Deutch Ost Afrika." Approximately 13cm x 17.5cm. Excellent condition.
