    Molokai,I do not know,what you are refering to.
    Far from having any deep knowledge,I just had a look at the
    listing of the german battleships.
    The last one,put into service in World War I,was the Hindenburg in 1917.
    All later built or projected ships were never completed.
    In September (!) 1918,the emperor signed an order to build a very big
    battleship of 48.000 tons.The project was named L 20 e.But it did not
    even see the end of the pojecting,bevor the war ended (very unexpected) in November.
    After the war the german fleet was put into internment in Scapa Flow,
    Orkneys.
    When it became clear that Germany would have to sign the Versailles
    Peace Treaty,what ordered the hand-over of all ships to the enemies,
    the commanding officer ordered and performed on June 21st,1919 the sinking of the fleet.
    When you google "Scapa Flow",you may find the (very long) listing
    of the sinked ships.The "Friederich der Große" was one of them.

    As far as I know the Tirpitz and the Bismarck were excellent ships.
    But lacking the necessary air-defence,they were not of much use.
    The US Iowa-class and the japanese Yamato-class were rather similar.

    Großlinienschiff (battleship) "Prinzregent Luitpold",sistership of
    the earliar shown "Friederich der Große" was put into service in 1912.
    Albin Köbis was the other sailor,who received the death-penalty for the
    1917 mutiny.
    The "Princeregent Luitpold" and all other four battleships of the
    "Kaiserclass" were amongst those ships,what were sinked at the
    Orkneys by their crews in 1919,to avoid a handover to the enemies.

    The Armored Cruiser "Aurora",built in 1901,played a legendary part in the
    October-Revolution of 1917,when it gave the signal to the storm on the
    Winter-Palais in St.Petersburg.
    Today it is a museum-ship,laying in St.Petersburg.
    issued Sept.20th,1977; (from a set of 2)

    Hi Werner, I find it such a coincidence that your stamp of the SMS Emden from Tristan da Cunha is the same ship as shown in my post, when the Australian ship HMAS Sydney fired on the Emden, and beached it... I wonder why the TdaC islands put it on their stamp?

    Hallo Betty,
    I was a little bit confused by your mentioning of Tristan da Cunha.
    The stamps in question are from the British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT).
    I guess the reason for this issue of the BIOT,is the harbouring of the
    Emden at Diego Garcia in 1914,the british base,what is still today reason
    for the existence of the colony B.I.O.T.The Emden met a friendly welcome there,although Britain was at war with Germany already for more than
    one and a half months.But the news of the war had not reached yet
    Diego Garcia !
