KLEINER KREUZER DANZIG WITH TORPEDOBOOT COLOR POSTCARD

SKU: 44-317

$20.00

This is a color postcard that was produced as a painting. It shows the small cruiser S. M. S. Danzig in company with a Torpedoboot. She was one of seven ships of the “Bremen” Class of small cruisers. She was commissioned in 1907 and saw action at the Battle of Heligoland. She also saw extensive fleet service in the Baltic. It is interesting to note that her final commander was Korvettenkapitän Prinz Adalbert von Preußen. Adalbert was the only one of Kaiser Wilhelm II’s sons to serve in the Kaiserliche Marine. He held that command from May 1917 through March 1918. After the war, the S. M. S. Danzig was delivered to England and scrapped. The postcard was never mailed.
