The Kiautschou Bay Leased Territory was a German leased territory in Imperial and Early Republican China from 1898 to 1914. These cap tallies were worn by personnel serving in the Kiautschou government. Unlike other overseas possessions, the German territory of Kiautschou in China (including the port of Tsingtao) was directly governed by the German Imperial navy. From 1900 other ranking personnel of the naval government wore these cap tallies. Gold was 'above decks' and silver 'below decks' - generic terms.
