Jan Lettens18/06/2013KRONPRINZ WILHELM was a passenger liner of 15.000 tons, measuring 202x20x8.8 m, built in 1901 for the Norddeutscher Lloyd by Vulkan Stetting Werke. In 1914, she was requisitioned by the German Navy and armed with 2x120 mm and 2x88 mm guns.

During WWI, KRONPRINZ WILHELM sank the following ships: INDIAN PRINCE, LA CORRENTINA, UNION, ANNE DE BRETAGNE, BELLEVUE, MONT AGEL, HEMISPHERE, POTARO, HIGHLAND BRAE, WILFRID M., SEMANTHA, CHASEHILL (captured), GUADELOUPE, TAMAR and COLEBY.

In 1917, she was interned in the US when she ran out of supplies. She served as a US Navy troop transport in WWI. After WWI, she was turned over to the US Shipping Board, where she remained in service until she was scrapped in 1923

  History  
 
Jan Lettens29/08/2011The French 3-masted bark ANNE DE BRETAGNE, with a cargo of wood to Australia, was captured on November 21st, 1914 by the German raider KRONPRINZ WILHELM at sea.

The crew of 24 were transfered on the raider. Due to her cargo, explosives didn't sink the ship, neither did 25 shells fired at her later. She was abandoned while still floating the next day in the ocean.

The crew remained on board until 20th December 1914, when they were transfered on the German steamer OTAVIE. Otavie landed them at Las Palmas, 4th January and the same day, the British steamer SS ORONSA took them on board and landed them at La Pallice, 11th January 1915.
