Very good condition, unposted.In November 1911, the 15th Infantry's 2nd Battalion of the US Army departed for Tientsin, China. In China it joined the international peacekeeping forces assigned to protect American and other foreign nations' interests. The battalion arrived in December 1911 with the 3rd Battalion and regimental headquarters following in early 1912. The 1st Battalion was retained in the Philippines and not posted to China. During the interminable revolutions, rebellions and civil wars following the 1911 Revolution in China the regiment performed its mission of protecting Tientsin from encroachment by marauding bandits and disaffected soldiery with skill and honor.
