I am researching the story of the German steamer SS "Bayern" which left Hamburg on July 24,1914 with a cargo of Skoda 7,5 guns ,machineguns and aircraft for China and Japan and was interned in Neapel,Italy, on 4 August. Any further data on these guns, the ship and her fate will be highly appreciated.
