This German Reiter was a member of the Kaiser's Schutztruppen for German South-West Africa - Schutztruppe
für Deutsch Südwest Afrika. The reverse of the photograph originally had this soldier's full name and address
written on it but the photographer pasted his label on top of the pertinent information. All that can be determined is
the soldier's last name of Finke and that he may have lived in Wilhelmshaven. He wears the 1896 pattern Kord
Waffenrock tunic and is armed with a K98 Mauser rifle,
