Lettens Jan16/04/2011SCUTTLING AT SCAPA FLOW

The scuttling of the German fleet took place at the Royal Navy's base at Scapa Flow, in Scotland, after the end of the First World War. The High Seas Fleet had been interned there under the terms of the Armistice whilst negotiations took place over the fate of the ships.

Fearing that all of the ships would be seized and divided amongst the allied powers, the German commander, Admiral Ludwig von Reuter, decided to scuttle the fleet. The scuttling was carried out on 21 June 1919. Intervening British guard ships were able to beach a number of the ships, but 52 of the 74 interned vessels sank.

Many of the wrecks were salvaged over the next few years and were towed away for scrapping. The few that remain are popular dive sites.

About Owners
 
Imperial German Navy - Kaiserliche Marine (1903-1919)

Kaiserliche Marine or the German Imperial Navy is the name for the German Navy between 1903 and 1919. Most of the ships had a prefix SMS, Seine Majestäts Schiff, which is the equivalent of HMS, Her/His Majesty's Ship.

This Navy should not be confused with Reichsmarine (1920-1935) or Kriegsmarine (1935-1945).
 
About Builders
 Vulcan A. G. (Stettin & Hamburg), Hamburg
Founded as Vulcan Werft in Stettin in 1851.

In 1857 the shipyard was renamed Stettiner Maschinenbau AG Vulcan.

As Stettin became too small, a new shipyard was built in Hamburg between 1907 - 1909.

In 1911 renamed Vulcan-Werke Hamburg und Stettin Actiengesellschaft.

In 1928 the Hamburg company merged with other companies to Deschimag concern. The Stettin company was taken over by Howaldtswerke AG.
