G012981 IMPERIAL GERMAN ‘Seebatallion’ PHOTOGRAPH. (Photographie)

A WW1 era, 14cm x 9cm portrait of a Seebataillon (Marine Infantry) Officer in full-dress uniform.  Rare image of an officer in a seated pose. Crisp focus with excellent uniform details of the officer shoulder straps with Kaiserliche crown and cap with white band, leather chinstrap and single Cockade. Bayonet with Portapee in clear focus. 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. Seebataillon were based in Germany while the III. Seebataillon was permanently based in Tsingtao in China. Photography studio stamp on reverse. Excellent condition.
