G012881 IMPERIAL GERMAN "Kaiserliche Marinekorps" PHOTOGRAPH. (Photographie)

A WW1 era, 14cm x 9cm, portrait photo of a Marinekorps Sailor in Imperial Navy enlisted dress uniform with the rare cap tally Kaiserliche Marinekorps. He wears the  ribbon for the Iron Cross Second Class in his buttonhole and wears the Turkish War Medal (The “Gallipoli Star” or Harp Madalyası in Turkish) on his left chest. A very rare Image, as he would have had to serve in combat both in the Turkish theater to earn the Turkish War Medal, and also the Western European theater of the war, as the Kaiserliche Marinekorps served only in Flanders. The Kaiserliche Marinekorps was instituted under the leadership of Admiral von Schröder on September 3, 1914, and played a part in the taking of Antwerp on October 10, 1914. The General Command had its headquarters at Bruges. The infantry of the Naval Corps consisted of six regiments of able seamen and the marines. The latter in particular had played a distinguished part in the great battles in Flanders in 1916 and 1917. RARE!
