Lockstedter Lager was the training area for all Marine Infantry battalions or Seebataillon prior to WW1. The Seebataillon were actually an arm of the Imperial Navy and were established to provide a land-based force capable of defending Germany's ports and colonies. They were a Reich asset and thus did not wear a state or contingent cockade on their Mützen. The I. and II. Seebatallion were based in Germany while the III. Seebatallion was permanently based in Tsingtao in China.
