A member of the Korps Mariniers or Dutch Marine Corps who formed part of the small Dutch contingent of legation guards at
Peking China c. 1905. He is probably armed with the Dutch M.95 Mannlicher rifle and is wearing a straw hat very similar to
those worn by British Royal Navy ratings when on shore duty. An interesting if unintentional part of this photograph is the
shadow of the photographer and his tripod mounted camera which can be seen extending up from the lower left bottom edge of
the image.
