Uniformen der Marine und Schutztruppen
published by Waldorff Astoria Cigarette Factory, Munich 1933 (Artist Unknown)

  This a collection of 96 cigarette cards printed in Germany in the early 1930s showing the uniforms of the Imperial Navy, Schutztruppe and Polizeitruppe before the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. Being cigarette cards, the illustrations are naturally quite small but the uniforms are very well researched. The albums turn up on E-bay quite regularly at reasonable prices. Those cards showing the Schutztruppe, Polizeitruppe and Marine Infantry are shown below.
