(Cruiser # 3) Ship's Marines in heavy marching order, on board the cruiser during her Asiatic Fleet deployment, circa 1904-1906. These Marines are equipped for winter expeditionary party duty, with horseshoe rolls containing their blankets rolled in rubber ponchos. They are armed with Krag rifles (M1898) and bayonets, and are wearing woven double loop cartridge belts. Two of the Marines in the back row appear to be of oriental extraction.
