Four Annamese infantrymen from Saigon, with their backpacks and their distinctive salacco headdresses, seemingly waiting to move on.
The first regiments of Annamese infantrymen (in French tirailleurs, meaning literally skirmishers) were created in 1879. These troops belonged to the French naval infantry. They were dismantled in 1945 along with the other Indochinese infantry regiments.
The caption reads in the original French:
Tirailleurs annamites de Saïgon.
