Carmania spotted Cap Trafalgar's smoke early in the morning and some hours later was able to surprise the German ship with two colliers in the island's only harbour. By ironic coincidence the Cap Trafalgar was disguised as the Carmania while the "Carmania" was not disguised as the "Cap Trafalgar", some accounts were confused.

Both the captains of the Cap Trafalgar and the Carmania had realized that to fight a successful action their vessels had required plenty of room; so, the captains had separately steamed several miles from the outcrop of the Island of Trindade in order to gain the space required. The Cap Trafalgar also sent out encoded German messages, announcing the engagement with the Carmania, and the position as 35 degrees west, 26 degrees south, with a NNW heading.

Then the two ships turned towards each other and began to fight, the Carmania firing too early and thus allowing the Cap Trafalgar the first blow.

Carmania suffered much the worse of the engagement in the ensuing two hours, being hit 79 times, was holed below the waterline, and had her bridge totally destroyed by shellfire.

However, as the range closed her own guns began to tell, and fires broke out on both ships, sailors lining the rails and firing machine guns at their opposite numbers as the ships came within a few hundred yards of each other, in a style of fighting more akin with the Napoleonic Wars than the First World War.

Just as it seemed that the fires on Carmania would burn out of control, Cap Trafalgar veered away, lowering lifeboats as she heeled over to port. A shell below the waterline had ruptured several compartments, and the ship was rapidly sinking, although the colliers were able to pull sailors from the wreck before she sank. Carmania was equally shattered, listing severely, heavily flooded and burning, with nine men dead and many more wounded.

It was at this point that Cap Trafalgar's contemporary, the armed merchant cruiser SMS Kronprinz Wilhelm arrived, seemingly to provide the coup de grace for the shattered ship. However, the Kronprinz Wilhelm's captain feared a trap, since many ships both German and Allied in the area had doubtless been listening to the SOS calls of the Cap Trafalgar, which, though in German code, had been supplemented by messages from the Carmania with the British code.

Since multiple warships were on their way to the location, and the Cap Trafalgar had presumably already sunk, the captain of the Kronprinz Wilhelm turned his ship about and sailed away without firing a shot. The following day the Carmania was rescued and brought into Pernambuco by other units of the Royal Navy, whilst the survivors of the Cap Trafalgar were rescued by the collier Eleonore Woermann and taken to Buenos Aires. Thanks to Roy Johnson for providing me with this scan from his father's photo collection.

Roy's father Albert was amongst these crew members. See this photo of him later in a POW camp: The Port Wellington was carrying 4, tons of frozen meat, butter, eggs, and cheese and 1, tons of steel, 1, tons of wheat. She had a crew of eighty-two and seven passengers. Eighty-one of the crewmen including the wounded captain who would later die from his injuries on board the Pinguin and the seven passengers, all of who were women, were picked up by the Pinguin.

The Port Wellington was then scuttled. Originally a luxury passenger steamer the SS Berlin was commissioned for war purposes by the GermanNavy in , the ship's first mission was laying a mine field off the north-west coast of Ireland against British trade. She escaped to neutral Norway and claimed harbour of refuge. Having outstayed her 24 hours grace and unfit to leave port she was interned by the Norwegians on 18 November Due to unforeseen cost overruns, the vessel was not completed until May In July her accommodation was altered to cabin, tourist and 3rd class, and in March to cabin and 3rd class.

On 24 August , she was taken into naval service and converted into an Armed Merchant Cruiser. Armed with 8 x 6-inch mm and 2 x 3-inch 76mm naval guns, she became HMS Ascania with the pennant number F From November to September she deployed to the New Zealand station. Ascania was returned to Cunard and refitted, resuming passenger service on 20 December on the Liverpool to Halifax route. She underwent a major refit in , to 14, gross tons and with accommodation for 1st and tourist class passengers,[1] and returned to service on 21 April on the Liverpool-Quebec-Montreal route.

Ascania was again taken up as a troopship for the Suez landings[2] and finally retired in December Ascania's bell and a large model showing her interior are display at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The ship entered service in July and was primarily employed on the Canadian route running from Southampton to Quebec and Montreal during the warm weather months and Halifax during the winter.

She was one of a number of so-called intermediate liners built with fuel economy in mind. Designed with a single stack and straight stem bow with four passenger decks, the ship was propelled by two screws powered by four double reduction geared steam turbine engines that gave her a service speed of fifteen knots.

Safety features included twelve watertight compartments divided by eleven bulkheads and twenty-eight lifeboats. In August of Alaunia was taken over by the Royal Navy for service as a troop transport and served in this capacity until when she was sold to the Royal Navy and refitted as a base repair ship at Gibraltar.

Luckner was repatriated to Germany in By then, he was a war-hero nicknamed the "Sea-Devil". Wolf left Germany in Nov. During that time, the crew relied upon itself and its captures. Gleichzeitig wurde ein umfangreicher Umbau vorgenommen.

Juni nahm die Admiral Scheer an der Kieler Woche teil. Nachdem Flugzeuge der Republikaner am Am Morgen des Mai herrschte so dichter Frühnebel, dass die im Hafen liegenden Schiffe nicht oder kaum ausgemacht werden konnten. Zudem war die Jaime I. Da viele Granaten ihre Ziele verfehlten und in der Stadt einschlugen, war der Einsatz wenig erfolgreich.

Bei Kriegsbeginn war die Admiral Scheer wegen Schwierigkeiten mit der Antriebsanlage nur beschränkt einsatzbereit. September wurde sie auf Schilling-Reede von britischen Bombern angegriffen. Die Briten erzielten drei Bombentreffer, die allesamt Blindgänger waren. Als sie am November den Nordatlantik zu erreichen. Dabei kam es zum Gefecht mit dem Hilfskreuzer Jervis Bay, dessen Gegenwehr dem Gros des Geleitzuges das Entkommen ermöglichte, während er selbst in diesem ungleichen Kampf unterlag und unterging.

Danach trat sie den Rückmarsch an und lief am 1. April in Kiel ein. Bei diesem Einsatz legte sie in Tagen rund Ihre Versenkungszahl belief sich auf 17 Schiffe mit über Während der deutschen Besatzung Norwegens wurde die Admiral Scheer dort stationiert. In dieser Zeit beteiligte sie sich am Unternehmen Wunderland vor der russischen Nordküste. Juli wurde sie der 2. Im November griff sie in die Rückzugskämpfe der deutschen Heeresgruppe Nord in Estland ein, wo sie Artillerieunterstützung bot und die Evakuierung der letzten 4.

Im Februar lieferte sie Artillerieunterstützung verschiedener deutscher Brückenköpfe bei Frauenburg und auf Samland, westlich von Königsberg. In dieser Lage blieb das Wrack fixiert. Ab Juli wurde das Wrack von Kieler Firmen ausgeschlachtet, jedoch nach übereinstimmenden Berichten nur bis zur Wasserlinie. Die Schiffsglocke befindet sich im Deutschen Marinemuseum in Wilhelmshaven.

Ich zeige diese Glocke hier in ihrem musealen Umfeld und zur Mahnung: Etter 1 verdenskrig ble skipet i overtatt av engelskmennene og gikk siden under navnet "SS Arabic" inntil opphogging Flere av besetningen ble internert om bord "Berlin" i Trondheimsfjorden. The ship holds the dubious distinction of being the first armed merchant cruiser to have been sunk by a ship of the same class; destroyed in a furious action in the South Atlantic in September soon after the start of the war.

A three-funneled vessel of ft m length and 72 ft 22 m beam, she measured 18, GRT and could carry nearly 1, passengers 1st class, 2nd class, 3rd or steerage class. A triple-screw vessel, her outer propellers were powered by two triple-expansion steam engines, and the centre screw by an exhaust turbine, a similar arrangement to that on Titanic.

When Cap Trafalgar began her maiden voyage on 10 April from Hamburg for South American ports in Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, she was the largest vessel hitherto on the South American service and among the most luxurious. As already planned, she was requisitioned by the German Imperial Navy as an auxiliary cruiser. On 18 August she arrived in Montevideo for coals and then sailed to rendezvous at the remote Brazilian island of Trindade, miles east of the Brazilian mainland, with the gunboat SMS Eber, which transferred naval officers, ammunition and armaments to the liner.

At the same time, her third funnel a dummy was removed. She was armed with two 4. After an initial fruitless cruise, Cap Trafalgar returned on 13 September to the secret supply base at Trindade Island to take on fuel from German colliers. It was at this base on 14 September that Cap Trafalgar was discovered by the British armed merchant cruiser HMS Carmania, a liner belonging to the Cunard Line which had been converted to a convoy escort and raider designed to flush out German colliers and small warships that might be using the inhospitable island as a base against British merchant shipping.

Carmania spotted Cap Trafalgar's smoke early in the morning and some hours later was able to surprise the German ship with two colliers in the island's only harbour. By ironic coincidence the Cap Trafalgar was disguised as the Carmania while the "Carmania" was not disguised as the "Cap Trafalgar", some accounts were confused.
