boxer rebellion legate forces

 British marines defending the legate
 British Imperial troops ready to march on the capital.  To be honest I dont like the uniforms much, we should have worn red.

 Indian troops supporting the British march on the capital.  Indian troops made to the balance of the british empire contingent.

 Americans, well at least they turned up.  In actual fact the american troops fought very well during the rebellion but it dosent defent the tarrible atrocaties carried out by them after the rebellion in china.  Although I should point out that most of the occupation troops were infact not the same marines who defended the legate or fougfht in the rebellion, they were new arrivals after the rebellion.  Mark Twain wrote quite alot about the subject.
