Pier of Yokohama postcard dated April 18, 1901, used from on board the SMS Kaiserin Elizabeth, in China to support the Alliance of 8 Country's troops in suppressing the Boxer Rebellion. This is a scarce card from the small contingent of the Austrian Kriegsmarine in the Far East at this period. Austria had a relatively small Navy which became landlocked after WWI. With POLA 1 (their main naval base) receiver. Slightly worn, small tear at right margin. Sharp strike of the SM SCHIFF cachet. Rare!
