POSTCARD OF BATTLESHIP S. M. S. RHEINLAND

SKU: 44-185

$20.00

This is a postcard of the Battleship S. M. S. Rheinland. She was commissioned in 1910. Along with her three sister ships of the Nassau Klasse, she formed the I Battleship Squadron. She fought at the Battle of Jutland (Skagerrakschlacht) and suffered one hit from British gunfire. Interestingly, she had four turrets: one in the center afore-ships and one in the center astern, then two off-center on the port side, an interesting arrangement. She is seen steaming in profile from the port side. The postcard was never mailed, but the technical details are printed in the upper left corner.
