DESCRIPTION

This is a scarce example of the 'Remembrance of Service Time' flask for a member of the Naval Artillery Detachment stationed in China. The Imperial German colonial artillery section was not a large body so there were not many of these canteens made nor sold at the time. The enameled decorations on one side feature an image of an Imperial German Battleship with the legend 'From China's shores to Homeland'. The other side portrays a Naval Artillery Colonial troop member with his sweetheart with the unit and Klautschou-Tsingtau, China location. The piece is complete with its original black/white/red cord and the shot cup with eagle finial. The steel frame shows minimal spotting, retaining 99% of its original finish. I've never seen another from this unit.
