Erinnerung an die "Emden"

Recommended Posts

I would like to share this picture of the "Emden" with you.

It says "In memory of the 9th foreign travel. Christmas 1938"

Hi, very nice pieces!

When the former captain of the 1st Emden, von Restorff  (23rd November 1911 - 24th May 1913), got his training as Seekadett he served under the former 1st officer and now retired Kontre-Admiral Sarnow on SMS Deutschland. I can offer a handwritten birthday-card from von Restorff to Sarnow on the occassion of the latter´s 80th birthday in 1930, on which he recalls "the good old days" together with another Seekadett by the name of Behncke, who also signed the card. In 1930 v. Restorff was himself a retired Kontre-Admiral.

Find attached a photo with two ships with famous names. On the left EMDEN III passing the Deschimag ship-yard on the river Weser in Bremen at the moment of the launch of the BREMEN IV on 16th August 1928.
